One would think that I have stopped crocheting. I haven’t. I just have several projects that I started and are in various states of completion. There are also some projects – like this one that was completed but never posted. This is one of them.
This small jar carrier was made using Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Fleur De Lavande, a multi-colored cotton yarn which happens to be scented that I used before to make a small bag. As with the other project, I used an H hook.
Start this with a Magic circle of 6 sc stitches.
Increase until 24 stitches around. Complete 2 more rows to single sc around. Be sure to ch 1 at the start of each row and then sl st ant the end of each row.
Now for the pattern:
Row1: ch 1. Sc in 1st stitch, *ch 5, skip 3 st, sc in next sc. Repeat from * ending with sc. Sl st to join.
Row 2: ch 4 (counts as tr), *5dc in ch5 space, repeat from * across. Tr in last sc. So this row is mostly a series of 5dc in the ch5 spaces. Sl st to join.
Row 3: this is very similar to row 1. Ch 1. Sc in tr. *ch 5 skip 5dc sc in space between the last dc of the prior 5dc and the first do in the next 5dc series. Repeat from * ending with sc in last tr. sl st to join.
Rows 4-7: Repeat rows 2 and 3 2 more times.
Row 8: ch 1, sc around putting st in each st so there are 24 stitches total. Sl st to join.
Row 9: Ch1, sc in each of next 3 st. Ch 15, skip 6 st, sc in next 6 st, ch 15, skip 6 st, sc in next 3 st, sl stitch to join
Row 10: ch 1, sc in each st and 20 sc in the 15 ch spaces working all around. Sl st to join. Fasten off and weave in any ends.
Here is the final result and what the yarn looks like:
