Created by Kristi Sloan 2004




Materials:
Crochet Cotton Thread, size 10, 3 colors, approx. 100 yards.
1 Yard 1/4 inch ribbon in coordinating color
Hook size 0
Jar, I used a 25 oz jar from the generic brand of pickles.

Stiches Used:
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
sc - single crochet

Ch 4, silp stitch in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 7 dc in ring, join to beginning ch 3. 8 dc.
Rnd 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in next stitch and in each stitch around, join to beginning ch 3. 15 dc.
Rnd 3 - 4: Ch 3, dc in same stitch,2 dc in next stitch and in each stitch around , join. 30 dc, 60 dc.
Rnd 5: Ch 2, only for this round, working in back loops hdc in each stitch around, join. 60 hdc.
Rnd 6: Ch 2, hdc in each stitch around, join. 60 hdc
Rnd 7-18: Repeat rnd 6.
Rnd 19: Ch 3, dc in next stitch, dc next 2 stitches together, * dc in next 2 stitches, dc next 2 stitches together. Repeat from * around, join.
Rnd 20: Ch 2, in this round only, working in back loops hdc in each stitch around. 45 hdc, join.
Rnd 21: Ch 4, skip 1 stitch, *dc in next stitch, ch 1, skip 1 stitch. Repeat from * around. Do not join, this will make the piece easier to get on / off the jar.
Rnd 22: Ch 3, sc in same stitch, *ch 3, sc in space, ch 3 sc in dc. Repeat from * across. Do not join. Fasten off.
Slide work over jar.
Starting half way around, thread ribbon through spaces made in rnd 21. By starting halfway around the ends of rnds 21 and 22 are in the back of the work. Tie ribbon in a bow.

*Do not be afraid to add or subtract a stitch or two so the work fits snuggly around the jar.
