  • this pattern is for a candle drape... which is something I haven't ever heard of before
  • it works up quickly and easily
  • I didn't have a candle which was the right size... so I've positioned the drape over a glass for the photos
  • just looking at the photos now... I'm thinking that this would look nice left on the glass the way it is... with a candle placed inside the glass

I think you are right and it would be a bit safer as well:)

ljohnson - I think that you are supposed to remove the drape before lighting the candle... it's more of a decoration for when the candle is not in use... but I like the idea of draping it over the glass... you could keep the drape in place when using the candle, and the flame flickering behind the crochet and beads would look magical :)

anon - thank you so much... how's the crochet going? are you teaching yourself or do you have someone to guide you? all the best with your new skill... it's a wonderful way to keep your hands busy!
