Crochet Jar Lid Covers DIY


These are my newest crocheted jar covers. I have tons of jars in various sizes that store my beads, buttons, left over yarn and some of them have fabric covers while others are coverless.

This is a pattern you can use for any size of lid.
Start by chaining 5. Join to make ring. Next sc2 in each st for 4-5 rounds. In the next rounds, sc 1 around until you get the desired width.

For example for this particular lid I stopped increasing at 40 st in round, then sc around for several rounds until I could slip the lid inside.


By following this pattern, the crochet work will start rounding, getting an elliptical shape (see picture below).

When the lid was completely covered I crocheted 2sctog, made 1 picot, skipped 1 and repeated this pattern around.

That's it. When finished I inserted a contrasting thread to make the edging more prominent.

These are fun, Maya, and I'm noticing the doily in the background, per your previous post, I've been paying attention :-)

I Think that these would make great packaging for small gifts in a bottle
