Mason Jar Cover 2, loom knit

Posted on: April 14, 2013

Hi all, hope everyone is having a great day, the sun has finally been shining this afternoon! YEA!!!
I am feeling better today, this has been a very wicked bug! I should be able to go to work tomorrow (: don’t ya just hate being sick on the weekend and than feel better in time for work. I spent part of this afternoon doing taxes, April 15 is tax day here in the US, I had put them off because I knew we were going to have to pay and we do! All my tax deductions grew up and moved out. Rob keeps saying we should be able to claim Weezer as a dependent, ha ha! At least he will never move out.

Anyway onto Mason Jar Covers. Yesterday after I posted about the crocheted Mason Jar Cozy Angie P. from http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Atmyhouse/
which is one of my Yahoo groups, asked me if it could be loom knit, I told her yes and that I would work one up, this is my result ( she also asked about drink cozy’s so thats what I did)

How to’s :
Loom – all in one loom from Authentic Knitting Board
Yarn – Sugar and Cream in the color Lemon-lime
Loom pick
Yarn needle
Peg markers – 6 are needed, I use tiny elastic bands

Set up your loom to knit on 36 pegs in the round. Mark peg 1 and each 6th peg around.
Using the crochet cast on, cast on to all 36 pegs

Row 1 ewrap and knit off
Row 2 ewrap 1peg, slip next peg (take yarn behind peg to next one) repeat around, knit off
Row 3 – 15 ewrap and knit off
If you want it to cover the whole jar just keep knitting until it is tall enough. Than begin the decrease rows.

Decrease rows, I followed Kristen’s method that she uses on her Granny Rounds here it is

Scroll down to the section called decreases and bind off.
Decrease until you have 18 pegs remaining. Bind off using the drawstring bind off, pull up and tie off. Weave in ends, slip on your jar.
I’m trying another one except with a Kiss Loom, I think I can follow the above with no chnges except use the uwrap instead of the ewrap, I’ll let ya know.

Your Schnauzer is beautiful! I’ve had 4 over the past 45 years – love them all!!

Thanks Linda, I think Weezer is pretty special he’s the only one I have had and he adds much joy to my life.

I have had 3 the color of Weezer, 2 males and a female – all darling dogs! Right now I have a rescue (but he is in his forever home with me!) and he is truly salt and pepper – BEST dog I have ever had. LOVES kids, especially toddlers, and wonderful temperament! Enjoy Weezer, they are all special dogs!
