These beautiful glass jar wraps are from Leigh Radford's, One More Skein and were shared via a post on Design*Sponge. They are covering up a mayonnaise jar, a peanut butter jar and a jam jar. They kind of remind me of my faux knitted vase but all the better - the real thing. And because there is glass inside they make a great flower vase. These knits remind me of getting ready for fall but, with some bright blue cotton, I created the jar cover for my spring giveaway.
I improvised following the beginning of her pattern for a lace jam jar. (The third pattern on the design* sponge post) To make my cover I used a pretty, bird egg blue cotton yarn and US #4 needles. (Leigh's pattern calls for #9 needles - but for my little jam jar this worked the best ) You begin by knitting in the round, starting at the bottom of your jar cover. Once I had completed the portion that made up the circular bottom, I just continued with the stocking stitch in the round, for my body, until my cover was tall enough to cover up the glass jam jar. Then I just finished with a simple bind off.
There is still time to enter the draw for the wrapped up jam jar and the three spring pencils.
