Always made with love! These cute little lighter holders make for great gifts! I’ve had tons of customers buy these as gifts for their friends and loved ones over the years. With this in mind, I wanted to make the crochet pattern available to everyone to share the love. These are also perfect for festivals. Keep all your little valuables handy & safe so you can keep dancing!
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.
Dishie from Knit Picks is a super close alternative. It’s 100% cotton, worsted-weight yarn that comes in a huge variety of solid colors and multicolored blends.
Paintbox Yarns Recycled Cotton Worsted is another one of my favorite substitutions. This yarn 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! ♡
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.
CROCHET HOOK: 5.0mm
YARN: Worsted-weight cotton yarn.
Recommended – Lily Sugar n’ Cream in 2 different colors for cap & stem (less than 1 ball needed for each color)
EXTRAS: Scissors, yarn needle
2” x 2” (5cm x 5cm) dc swatch = 8 sts x 4 rows
- This pattern is written in US crochet terms
- Crochet skill level: Easy
- The stitch count at the end of each row is shown in parenthesis ( )
- The ch at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch
To ensure that a standard lighter fits properly in the stem pocket, your stem should measure approximately 3 inches in length, and 1.5 inches across (7.6cm x 3.8cm) as I have shown in the photo below.

Cut yarn & fasten off. Weave in yarn tails.
- Attach your yarn needle to the yarn tail at the end of the strap.
- Going through the inside of the cap, pull the strap between two stitches on RND 1.
- Then, from the outside of the cap, pull the strap between two stitches on the opposite side of RND 1.
- On the stem, locate the stitch on the opposite side of the strap (you can use a stitch marker if it helps).
- 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.
- Finally, adjust the strap as needed & tuck the stem into the cap. You’re all done! ♡
