I received a Japanese crochet pattern book called “Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts” for Christmas which contained loads of cute, lovely crochet patterns – coasters, square and round dollies, tissue box covers, coin purse, phone covers, jar covers, baby shoes, pot holders, etc.
I have been wanting to try my hand at crocheting jar covers because I have a number of empty jam jars that I would like to recycle to use as holders by dressing them up with a nice cover. The pattern for jar covers in Kyuuto looked easy – just repeating rows of double stitches and single stitches. You can easily increase or decrease the number of rows for the base to accommodate varying jar sizes.
A bright and cheery cover for a small Ikea glass that I use to hold a little pot of succulent. I concealed the ugly joining stitches of the cover with two big wooden buttons that I bought at one of the shops in People’s Park Centre. This is a good crochet craft to make while watching a Korean drama because I do not have to keep referring to the pattern, or count stitches. 🙂
This is a really good crochet pattern book, with easy-to-follow patterns in English. It was on my to-buy list, and was so glad to receive it as a gift! So this jar cover went to my friend who gave me the book.
