I needed to pretty up a windowsill in my kitchen, so I crocheted cozy covers for these mason jars, and added little "belt loops" to thread a pretty ribbon through. Enjoy the free pattern!
Beginner pushing intermediate
Up to you, made to fit your jar!
Worsted weight yarn
5 mm crochet hook
Ch - Chain
Sl st - Slip stitch
Sc - Single crochet
Dc - Double crochet
Hdc - Half double crochet
Sk - Skip
FYI, you don't actually crochet this while it's around the jar. I just popped it on the jar for photos!
Ch in multiples of 6 to fit around your jar with a bit of a stretch to it.
Row 1: 4 dc into 3rd ch from hook (this is your first shell), sk 2, sc, sk 2, *5 dc in next st, sk 2, sc, sk 2, repeat from * around ending with sc. Sl st in base of first shell to form a circle.
Here is row 1 unjoined.
Row 2: Ch 1, continuing around opposite side of chain, sc into each around. (You should have 2 less stitches than your starting chain)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in same, sc in next 2, *sc in front loop only of next (this means the loop that is on the inside of the circle), sc in net 3, repeat from * around ending with front loop sc in last, sl st to join.
Row 4: Ch, sc in same, sc in each around, sl st to join.
Row 5: Ch 1, sc in same, sc in next 2, *dc into exposed back loop of Row 3 sc, sk next sc (the sc above where you dc into the Row 3 back loop), sc in next 3, repeat from * around, sl st to join.
Here's how what you're doing in Row 5 will look. You're creating a little belt loop to thread a ribbon through later.
Row 6: Ch 1, sc in same, sk next, *5 hdc in next, sk next, sc, sk next, repeat from * ending with skiping last stitch, sl st to join.
Row 7: Sl st in next 2, *sc in next, ch 5, sk next 5, sc in next, repeat from * around, sl st in first sc at top of shell.
Row 8: Ch 1, sc in same, *sk 2 ch, 5 hdc in next ch st, sk 2 ch, sc in next, repeat from * around ending with 5 hdc, then sk 2 ch, sl st into first sc.
Repeat rows 7 - 8 until desired length is reached.
Last row: Ch 1, sc in same, *5 sc in ch space, sc in next, repeat from * around, sl st to join, fasten off.
Weave in all ends.
Use crochet hook or yarn needle to help thread ribbion through loops, then tie in a bow.
