Free Crochet Pattern...Jelly Jar Covers!


I made these fun jelly jar covers to liven up some plain old jars I had.  While these are great for gifting your handmade jellies and jams, they also make gorgeous storage jars for little things like buttons, beads, and lots more!

Instructions:

Note: I worked one round of each color, feel free to experiment with any stripe combinations you like!

Ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring. (note: if you prefer the magic ring, feel free to use this method instead, see tutorial links above too)

Round 1: Ch 2, then work 11 hdc into the center of the ring.  Join with a sl st to close round.

Round 2: Ch 2, work 1 hdc in the first st then 2 hdc in each stitch around.  Join with a sl st to close round.

Round 3: Ch 2, work 1 hdc in the first st then *2 hdc in the next st, then 1 hdc in the next st.  Rpt from * around.  Join with a sl st to close round.

Round 4: Ch 2, then work a hdc in each st in the back loops only (blo). Join with a sl st to close round.

Repeat round 4 until cover is as tall as your jar.  I worked all the way up to the point where the base and the lid met.

Scallop edging:

For the taller scallop shown in pink:
Ch 3 and work 2 dc in the first st.  *Sl st in the next st, skip the next st, then work 3 dc in the next st.  Rpt from * to end of round, join to close with a sl st then fasten off.


For the shorter scallop shown in green:
Ch 3 and work 2 hdc in the first st.  *Sl st in the next st, skip the next st, then work 3 hdc in the next st.  Rpt from * to end of round, join to close with a sl st then fasten off.


Finishing & Assembly:

Weave in all ends and your finished!  To add the flower (pattern link below), you can sew it onto the cozy or glue it to the lid if using for storage (if you want to reuse the jars for food preservation, don't glue anything to the jar or lid)
