Canning Jar Crochet Hook Holder

Canning Jar Crochet Hook Holder

Need a quick project?
   I used a Amber mason jar, metallic thread and a quick and easy crochet coaster pattern.

 I know it's not a "new" idea to use a doily over a jar for potpourri, but what about showing off your crochet hooks ! Use a taller jar to store knitting needles. This pic doesn't show the shimmer of the metallic thread which adds to the shine of the glass when the light hits it.






I used YarnArt Camellia metallic thread, which is a size 30 thread, holding two strands together and a Size F hook. You can use size 10 crochet thread, but, don't double it up 

ch - chain
dc- double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
hdc - half double crochet
tr - treble/triple crochet
beg - beginning 

Gauge - Rnd 1 and 2 = 1 1/2 inches 

Fits Wide Mouth Jars, for regular mouth jars skip Rnd 8

Rnd 1 -Ch 4 (counts as 1st dc plus center ch), dc 15 more times in 4th ch from hook. Sl st into top of beg ch 3. Finish every row this way.  (16 dc's)
Rnd 2 - Ch 4 (counts as 1st dc, ch 1), dc, ch 1 in ea dc around. (16 dc, ch 1)
Rnd 3 - Ch 5 (counts as 1st dc, ch 2), dc, ch 2 in ea dc around. (16 dc, ch 2)
Rnd 4 - Ch 6 (counts as 1st dc, ch 3), dc, ch 3 in ea dc around. (16 dc, ch 3)
Rnd 5 -Ch 4 (counts as 1st dc, ch 1), *dc in ch 3 sp, ch 1, dc, ch 1 in next dc * repeat around. (32 dc, ch 1)
Rnd 6-8 - Ch 4 (counts as 1st dc, ch 1), dc, ch 1 in ea dc. It will start to bend over at this point since your not adding any stitches to the rounds. (32 dc, ch 1)
Rnd 9 - Sl st into first ch 1 space. Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), 4 more dc's in same space. *Sc in next ch 1 space, 5 dc's in next ch 1 space *. Repeat around and end by making a sl st into the top of the beg ch's and knot off.
Weave in loose ends. Tighten up center if needed.

Place the doily over the top of the jar and place a rubber band around it and under the threads. Adjust to center it and screw on the lid. Remove rubber band.

They also work great for your pens and pencils and knitting needles

Where can you find my patterns ?

Craftsy is going through some major changes and they have deleted all but 4 of my patterns.
I have used their site for several years now and have truly enjoyed working with them, but, this really saddens me.  

Hopefully, they will be getting their updates done soon and my pattern store will show all my patterns once again.

You can still find all my patterns on Ravelry

New Spring and Summer Crochet Top Designs

I've been working on a couple of new designs for Spring and Summer 2017

Both of these tops have a A line fit and drape nicely over the hips without being binding.  Such a faltering look for those of us with large hips.

These tops have a positive ease making it fit perfectly over a tank or t shirt

Both are worked in three steps.  The Back and Front are worked flat in two pieces and the Body is worked off of the Foundation row of the Back and Front.  Seams at shoulders and a short seam under the arm openings.

I used Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop on both of these.  This is a #3 weight 50% Cotton / 50% Bamboo. This yarn is a pleasure to work with and the drape it creates is lovely.
