Crocheted Mason Jar Cover...

I found an old mason jar in the garage and decided to make a cute cover for it. I used my Sugar and Cream cotton yarns for it. I love the rainbow look...

  2. Do you have a pattern? I have recently crocheted some baskets and I'm sure it's that same basic pattern of increasing until it fits the jar and then sc all the way up. But tell me what you did for the finishing row for the "little ruffle"? It also looks like you might have decreased toward the top. It's very cute!

  3. yes, for the bottom I increased until it was large enough. for the sides, I chained one, 2 sc in the next stitch, skip a stitch repeating until end of row, slip stitched into the first sc to join, chain one, 2 sc in next stitch, skip a stitch...

    for the ruffle I did sc + hdc in one stitch, 2 dc in the next stitch, 1 hdc + sc in the third stitch, skip the fourth stitch, repeating. and no, I did not decrease towards the top, it just fits very snuggly around the jar :)

    1. it's great, Laura.
      Did you spiral up or was the last stitch in each row joined to the first with a slip st? x

  4. Did you start the project with a ring? I'm very new to crocheting and am not quite sure how to start this. Really love the colors you used!

  9. Hello Laura, I Love this and have also seen this in the store for water bottles w a long strap like a purse. Its great!~ Can you pls start off from the beginning, as I have never tried this b4 and am apt to get frustrated..LoL! single crochet 6 to form a circle....
    I hope thats close, lol. Then the increasing looks a little confusing but Im really anxious and want to learn this. What wool r u using? Heavy cotton?
    I truly look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks very much!

  12. Laura, Love the crochet Mason Jar cover. Ravely says there is a free pattern but the link only takes me to you blog. Can you please post the link to the complete pattern? I am new to crochet and would love to give this a try and would probably make many mistakes if I try to make this up as I go along. Thanks!

    1. Unfortunately, I didn't post this as a pattern to Ravelry, someone else did. I did not write a pattern for it, but I did explain in the comments (up at the top) how I created it.
