I’m sharing Ramadan Lantern crochet pattern since Ramadan is around the corner. You can use it as an actual lantern by using a small candle or just as decoration or gifts container. The pattern is easy to adjust to the size you like, note that you’ll need to use a glass or plastic jar or container for this pattern.
Skill level: Easy/Intermediate
Size: Free and easy to adjust
Any kind of yarn with small to medium thickness with suitable crochet hook
For the light green and gray lantern I used about 1 mm thick cotton thread with 2 mm crochet hook
For the red lantern I used 3 mm thick yarn with 5.5 crochet hook
Glass or plastic jar (See notes)
Thin ribbon with color that suits the yarn
MR – Magic ring
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
BL – back loop only
– Make sure to use a glass jar if you want to use it as lantern, other than that you can use glass or plastic one.
– I’m adding a lid pattern if you want to use it as a gifts container.
– Follow the red texts to adjust the size.
Rnd 1: MR, ch 3 (count as dc), 11 dc in the ring. Sl st in 3rd ch. (12 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 3 (count as dc), dc same st, 2 dc each st. Sl st in 3rd ch. (24 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 3 (count as dc), dc same st, dc next st, *2 dc, dc* repeat until the end of the round. (36 dc)
Rnd 4: Ch 3 (count as dc), dc same st, dc, dc, *2 dc, dc, dc* repeat until the end of the round. (48 dc)
Make more or less rounds to match your jar bottom. It has to be a little bit larger than the jar bottom.
Rnd 1: Ch 3 (count as dc), dc BL each st around.
Rnd 2: To make the sides strands, *sl st, ch 11 (more or less, see below), sc 2nd ch from hook, sc down all chains, skip next st, sc next 4 sts* repeat until the end of the round. Sl st at the end, FO and weave in ends. We’re not finished, complete next step.
Make more or less chains in Rnd 2 to make the right size for the strands that matches your jar. It has to be a little bit shorter (1/4″) than the jar side length.
Rnd 1: Attach your yarn to the top of one of the side’s strands with sl st, *ch 5, sl st on top of the next strand* repeat until the end of the round.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, *6 sc next ch space* repeat until the end of the round. Sl st next st.
Make a number of chains the length you want for your holder then sl st on the other side of the top. FO and weave in ends.
Lantern Lid: (optional)
Repeat same steps you did for the lantern bottom and first round only of the sides. FO and weave in ends.
If you’re using the lid use the ribbon to tighten the lid by weaving it in the side part of the lid and make a knot or a bow.
Your Lantern is Finished! I hope you like it.
