How to Crochet Around a Jar

Crocheting around a cylindrical jar itself is a difficult task, so, you will want to use the jar measurements as a guide and crochet a holder to go over it. Use a small glass jelly jar to make your first pretty crocheted jar cosy or cover. Start by crocheting a round piece for the bottom of the jar and working upward in rounds. Remember, yarn does stretch.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Crochet a circle. Start by making a chain of two. In the second chain from the hook, crochet eight double crochet. Join with a slip stitch to the top of the first double crochet. Place this first piece on the bottom of the jar to measure.

  2. 2

    Chain three (represents one double crochet). Work one double crochet in the same stitch and two in each stitch around to complete row two. This makes sixteen double crochet stitches. Slip stitch to the top of the first double crochet to join. If your jar bottom is this size, skip the next step and go to the fourth one to start making the jar holder sides.

  3. 3

    Chain three. To continue making the bottom round, make one double crochet in the next stitch and two double crochet in the next. Repeat from * around. Slip stitch to the top of the first double crochet to join.

  4. 4

    Chain three. Continuing up the side in rounds, make a double crochet in the back loop only in each stitch around. Slip stitch to the top of the first double crochet to join.

  5. 5

    Chain three. Work a double crochet in both loops in each stitch around. Slip stitch to the top of the first double crochet to join. Continue this step until the holder is the height of the jar. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

  6. 6

    Slip the jar inside the crocheted holder and you are finished.
