Empty Jam Jar + Yarn = Pretty Vase

Yesterday I bought some little daffodils from the market in town. When I got home a searched for something small enough to put them in and found these tall jam jars.

The daffodils looked nice in them but they were a bit plain. So last night I dug out my little balls of DK and made a cover for the jar.

It didn't take very long.

I chained 25 and joined the the ends together with a slip stitch to make a loop and then did rows of double crochet joining them a the end of each row until it was long enough to fit the jar.

I rather like it! Looks right with the daffodils. 

Tonight I think I will do vertical strips as I have another jar.

  1. I am in the process of learning crochet! I am practicing the basic stitches but will be going again to learn granny squares and colour changes- the cover looks fab and easy enough for me to try I think :)
