I created this mushroom lighter holder crochet pattern using Lily Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn. You don’t need much yarn to make one, so this pattern is great for using up yarn scraps!

Of course, you can substitute with any worsted-weight yarn. I especially love Lily Sugar n’ Cream because they have a variety of beautiful colors. I love pairing Lily Sugar n’ Cream solids for the stems with ombrés for the caps. LoveCrafts has a great selection of this yarn that you can find here.

You can also visit for a full list of alternatives! One of my favorite substitutions is Paintbox Yarns Recycled Cotton Worsted which is made from 100% recycled materials and comes in a variety of gorgeous shades.


Please use caution:

Please keep in mind that yarn is flammable. This design was created for the purpose of holding lighters when they’re not in use. Therefore, please make sure to remove your lighter from the stem before igniting. Please also pass this message along to your customers, gift recipients, or anyone using your finished creations! ♡

Optional Style:

If you’d like to make your lighter holder without the mushroom cap, simply follow the stem pattern below, then skip to the finishing instructions. You will only need to complete steps 4 & 5 of the finishing instructions to make a cap-less lighter holder.

Finishing Instructions:

  1. Attach your yarn needle to the yarn tail at the end of the strap.
  2. Going through the inside of the cap, pull the strap between two stitches on RND 1.
  3. Then, from the outside of the cap, pull the strap between two stitches on the opposite side of RND 1.
  4. On the stem, locate the stitch on the opposite side of the strap (you can use a stitch marker if it helps).
  5. Attach the end of the strap to the top of this stitch with a secure knot (use the yarn tail to create your knot). Then, weave in yarn tail & cut off any excess.
  6. Finally, adjust the strap as needed & tuck the stem into the cap. You’re all done! ♡
