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
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.
