Free Crochet Pattern: Country Chic Jar Cover

By Amy Yarbrough – Be the first to comment

I never tire of finding new ways to showcase granny squares! Designing with them always adds a little reminder of tradition to a modern style, and I am always in for a little retro. These little jars are great for holding tealights, or tiny potted plants, like succulents.

The pattern is quick and easy. First you will crochet 4 simple granny squares and border them in a round of white single crochet. Then you will join them using a simple single crochet method. There are tips at the bottom of this post explaining how to make this cover for a different sized jars, too.

Mini jars covered in granny squares are just too cute. I would love to see them lining a long table at a country themed wedding or party, wouldn’t you?!

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 8.75” (22cm) circumference, 1.75” (4.5cm) wide

Size 3 Crochet Thread (approximately 25 yards of color A [white], and 15 yards of color B [blue])
Crochet hook 4 (2.00 mm)
4 oz jar (pimiento jar)

Rounds 1 – 3 in pattern measure 1.75” (4.5 cm)

Crochet Pattern: Country Chic Jar Covers

Granny Square (make 4)
Round 1: with color A, make an adjustable ring, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc now and throughout), 2 dc in ring, ch 2, (3 dc, ch 2) 3 times in ring, sl st in third ch of beginning ch-3: 12 dc
Round 2: sl st in next 2 dc, (sl st, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-2 space, * ch 1, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-2 space, repeat from * 2 more times, ch 1, sl st in third ch of beginning ch-3: 24 dc
Round 3: with color B, ch 1, sc in each st around, working 3 sc in each ch-2 space, sl st in first sc: 40 sc
Finish off.

Assembling Squares
Hold back sides of motifs together and work in back loops only. Join by repeating (sc, ch 1, skip next sc) across the side. Finish off and join each square in to create a strip. Then take the strip and join the two ends together. Secure all ends and slide over jar.

Have a larger jar you want to cover? Easy! Make more motifs, or if you need it only slightly larger, try adding another round of single crochet.

Remember, if you run into any problems, I am only too happy to help!
