Pattern Description:

A set of 6 lanterns to hang on your Christmas tree. There is and Angel, Candle, Christmas Tree and Stocking. The round lanterns are made by making motifs which are then worked in to a bangle before joining together.

As always, the thread I have used is DMC Petra/Perle. I love the way this thread feels - and the fact it is machine washable and comes in loads of lovely colours. Petra comes in 100g balls or you can use Perle which comes in 25m skeins or 45m/10g balls.

Very Important!
These lanterns are designed to be used with battery powered LED tea lights, NOT wax candles.
