Harvest Votives

Materials:


  • Small amounts of worsted weight yarn (yarn used for the votives shown is Lion Brand Heartland in "Yosemite" (orange shade) and "Joshua Tree" (green shade)
  • Buttons of your choice (make sure they can fit through decorative holes) 
  • H (5.0 mm) crochet hook
  • Glass Jelly Jars (you can reuse some that you may already have or purchase here):

 (larger size)  (smaller size)

Sizing (unbuttoned and lying flat):

  • Smaller version: 9 inch circumference, 1.5 inches tall
  • Larger version: 9 inch circumference, 3 inches tall

Note: votive sleeve has lacy decorative holes that double up as button holes.  This makes it fully adjustable for a more snug fit if needed.



Instructions for Smaller Version:


Ch 7

Row 1: In the 5th ch from the hook work (2 dc, ch 1, 2dc) all in the same ch.  Skip the next ch and in the last ch, work a dc.

Row 2: ch 3 and turn.  In the ch 1 space from the previous row (center of each "v") work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc).  Then work a dc in the turning chain space.

Repeat row 2 until votive sleeve is desired length, and can be snugly buttoned around jar.  I made mine 9 inched long and it fit well with no slipping, but try it out on your particular jar before fastening off.



Instructions for Larger Version:

Ch 11

Row 1: In the 5th ch from the hook work (2 dc, ch 1, 2dc) all in the same ch.  Skip 3 ch and work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in the same chain.   Skip the next ch and in the last ch, work a dc.

Row 2: ch 3 and turn.  In the ch 1 space from the previous row (center of the "v") work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc).  Repeat for the next "v"  Then work a dc in the turning chain space.

Repeat row 2 until votive sleeve is desired length, and can be snugly buttoned around jar.  I made mine 9 inched long and it fit well with no slipping, but try it out on your particular jar before fastening off.



Finishing & Assembly:


Weave in all ends.  Sew a button to the beginning edge.  Use decorative holes at other end as a buttonhole.  To achieve a more snug fit around the jar, simply button one hole closer in.


Caution:  Do not allow yarn to come into contact with fire, as it could melt/burn.  Always extinguish flame completely after using.  Please keep away from kids and pets and definitely do not leave unattended.

    I've got all the materials and am ready to make the Harvest Votive. I'm always looking for small holiday crochet projects to give out to family and friends. This will certainly be a "Fall time favorite."
