Talenti Container Cover

I like repurposing old containers and using crochet to make them pretty.  When I recently polished off a container of Talenti Gelato that has a convenient screw top lid I knew it was a keeper.

This "pattern" is so simple to make I'm hard pressed to actually call it a pattern.  At least I can say it's perfect for beginners. It's basically single crochet done in the round, and all I've done really is count the stitches and rows for you.

Yarn I used:  Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn 446/ Meadow Dance
                      or you could use any size 4 medium weight yarn

Hook: Size H 5.00 mm

Talenti Gelato Container, One Pint (473 ml)
                       I bought mine at Walmart


Make a slipknot, Chain 40

Slip Stitch to beginning chain to join, making sure not to twist your chain

Single Crochet in same stitch as join, SC in each stitch around.

When you get back around to the beginning, crochet in the top of the first SC you made, and place a stitch marker there.  You've completed round 1.

Then continue SC in the round until you've completed 13 rounds, moving your stitch marker each round to help you keep count.

Once you've finished 13 rounds, skip a stitch, slip stitch into the next stitch, cut yarn and weave in ends.

*note* Yes, your cover will be slightly slanted due to working in the round.  Once you put it on your container, 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.
