Knitted/Felted Garden Lantern Pattern!

The battery-operated candle inside gives off a lot of light! Hanging a few of these lanterns from tree branches or shepherd's hooks will add a bit of charm to any evening garden party.

This is the "tall" tea light available from battery operated candles online.

I used simple Swiss darning to make colorful designs on the lantern before felting. The free, 7-page pattern gives you all the instructions you'll need. The pattern is a pdf and you can download it here. I hope you enjoy it! As always, if you run into anything troubling about it, jot me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I hope you're having a wonderful summer so far!
