Scalloped Jar Covers
10 oz Olive Jar and 25 oz Pickle Jar

Created by Kristi Sloan August 2004




Sorry guys, wish I had a better digital camera, but such is life. I used the jar on the left, the 25 oz pickle jar as a pen/pencil holder. The one on the right is the 10 oz olive jar, and works great for potpourri.

Materials:
Crochet Cotton Thread, size 10, 2 colors, approx. 100 yards.
1 Yard 1/4 inch ribbon in coordinating color, optional
Hook size 0
Jar, I used a 10 oz jar from the generic brand of olives and a 25 oz jar from the generic brand of pickles.

Stiches Used:
sl st - slip stitch
dc - double crochet
sc - single crochet
