As I promised, small projects;) What about a jar cover or jar candle cover? It can be used as a glass cover or mug as well.
Let me show you:
It fits to 350-450 g jars and a normal water glass or an x-long one. height 10 cm (4 inches) for the cover and the stitch is stretch, if you don’t work too tight, so check your tension:) ( I mean check with your jar or glass):
I used a 3 mm hook and crochet thread Num 6, says on label:D
Chain 8, form a ring:
Round 1: ch3 (count as a dc), 15 dc in ring, join in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3. (16 dc)
Round 2: ch 4 (1 dc +ch 1), *dc in next st, ch 1*, repeat 14 more times (16 dc, ch 1 groups); join with sl st in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3.
Round 3: ch 4 (1d+ch 1), dc in next ch 1 space, dc, ch 1, dc in next ch1 space- it’s the V-stitch- and the ch 1 space means the hole formed between those 2 dc from Round 2. Anyway, dc, ch1, dc in each ch 1 space around. Join. (16 V-stitches).
Round 4: ch 3 (count as dc), *3 dc , ch 3, 3 dc in next V-stitch (in the ch 1 space), dc in next V-stitch,* repeat around and join: you will have an 8 petals flower (which can be used as a potholder):
Round 5: ch 3, 3 dc, ch3, 3 dc in next ch 3 space, *dc in next dc, 3 dc, ch 3, 3dc in next ch 3 space*, repeat *_* around.
*Rounds 6 – 16 repeat Round 4.
Finishing: Round 17: ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each next 3 sts, 2 sc together, and repeat around. If you work very tight, you don’t need to decrease.
I hope that I didn’t miss anything. If you have any problem, just let me know…
Now, I finally finished my yoke dress. (Finally, because I started it last year…)
It is full handmade:
And I will make an assorted purse for it:D And this is for myself.
