Hi all, hoping ya’ll are having a great weekend! Other than it still being very gray and cold outside and I have the ick and feel like crap, mines okay.
On Easter Rob gave me some flowers and I pulled out a handy dandy mason jar to use as a vase. I have a ton of mason jars, Rob once bought 21 cases for 10 bucks, thinking everyone in the family would want some! Guess what? Nobody did!

I’ve been thinking since than the flowers would look prettier if they were in a pretty vase. So I set out to make it prettier, starting with browsing the web and I found two that I liked, but weren’t quite what I was looking for, so I kinda made my own inspired by:
Crochet Dynamite – http://www.crochetdynamite.com/2013/01/mason-jar-covers.html
and
Attic 24 – http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2008/09/idle-hooking.html

Mason Jar Cover

Supplies:
Lily Sugar and Cream 1 skein white, 1 skein Sunny Sky ( did not use full skeins)
Size G (4.0 mm ) hook
Yarn needle
Stitch marker or scrap of yarn

Stitches used:
American Stitches used
Magic Ring – http://www.planetjune.com/blog/tutorials/magic-ring-right-handed/
Single Crochet – sc
Chain – ch
Double Crochet – dc
Round – rnd(s)
Repeat – rep
Crochet abbreviation chart can be found here:

Starting at bottom
Note: I changed color after each round carrying the yarn not in use up the inside. My first rnd was in white and I ended with the Sunny Sky for the last rnd. I didn’t put the color changes in the following. Mark first stitch of each round if desired, move marker up each round.
Rnd 1 begin with a Magic Ring, make 6 sc in ring, pull up and tighten magic ring. Do not join rnd, you will be working in a spiral for a while. 6 stitches
Rnd. 2 Make 2 sc in each stitch around. 12 stitches
Rnd. 3 Make 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next, repeat around. 18 stitches
Rnd 4 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next 2, repeat around. 24 stitches
Rnd 5 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next 3, repeat around. 30 stitches
Rnd 6 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next 4, repeat around. Join to first stitch with a slip stitch. 36 stitches
Rnd 7 dc in joining stitch, dc in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch in first dc. 36 dc
Rnds 8-19 repeat rnd 7, finish off, weave in ends

Tie- make a chain of 100 chains, weave in ends. Weave thru last round of dc, slip on jar pull tie tight and tye in a bow.
I think the flowers look prettier now, what do you think?
