Oui Yogurt Jar Cover Crochet Pattern

I'm sure I'm not the only one who finishes a jar of Oui Yogurt and thinks that it's too nice to throw away.  I created a quick and easy pattern to make a crochet jar cover. 

Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Stripes Favorite
Hook: 5mm

CH 30

Slip Stitch to beginning CH, making sure not to twist your work.

SC in same beginning CH, and in each CH around. 

Continue working in the round, SC in each stitch around for 8 rounds. Making sure to Place Marker in your beginning stitch to keep track of your starting point.

At the start of Rnd 9, SC2Tog*, then SC in each stitch around.

At the start of Rnd 10, Skip stitch (the SC2Tog from Rnd 9) and Slip Stitch in next stitch, Slip stitch in each stitch around.  Cut yarn and weave in ends.  

Oui jars are tapered at the top, so the decrease rounds--Rnd 10-- is the top of your work.

The slip stitches in Rnd 10 not only serve to create a nice border, but also helps tighten up your cover so it fits the tapered jar better.

Yes, your cover will be slightly slanted due to working in the round.  Once you put it on your jar, however, it's not very noticeable.  I much prefer working in the round to "slip stitch to join, chain one" because that method leaves a very noticeable seam down your project.

  1. So adorable! Thank you for sharing. Best idea I've found yet for using Oui jars.

  2. Thank you, hope you enjoy if you make some!

  3. Funny, never even heard of Oui yogurt! But love the idea! Thanks for sharing

    1. You can find it at Walmart, it’s tasty but a little pricey.

  4. I'm so excited to have found this pattern! It's my favorite yogurt and I hate throwing out (or even recycling) the cute little jars.

    Do you plan to come up with a pattern for the Oui Petites? Have you tried them? They are delicious!

    1. I’ve never seen Oui Petites, I just checked at my grocery store this weekend and they don’t have them. If I ever get my hands on some I’ll definitely post a pattern.

    2. Judy January 20, 2019 Love those oui jars. Thanks for cute pattern!

    3. The petites are the same base circumference, only shorter.

      The same pattern will work; just work fewer rows to get the right height. I would imagine you need no more than five rows since they are about halfish the height of the regular ones.

  5. Omg! I have so many of these jars! They make perfect wine glasses too! Haha. I love oui and i love this crochet idea! I must give it a try! So cute!
    Found your blog on IG. Thanks for the follow!
