This is the case of these jars decorated with crochet. It is a very easy and quick project to knit and that consumes very little material, therefore it is ideal to use the remains of wool or thread that you have.
As a result of the combination of stitches, the motif that is formed as we knit is that of a little tree, so they can be knitted in Christmas colors and used as a nice decoration for these holidays.
One of the most beautiful possibilities these crocheted bottles have is that they can be turned into lanterns or candlesticks and are beautiful to adorn at night. The effect of the candle's light passing through the weave of the fabric is very beautiful and original.Tip: so that the candle remains fixed in the center of the jar and at the same time looks nicer and better presented, I placed the colored stones that are usually used to decorate pots. They can place stones of the same color as the yarn, so even when the candle is out, when we look inside the jar it will also look neat and in tune with the work. The main function of the pebbles will be to keep the sail firm in the center, preventing it from moving out of place with the movement.
MEASURES: The bottle used to weave this cover is 6.5 cm. in diameter and 12 cm. High. You can adapt this pattern to any jar you have, since just by modifying the size of the base, the fantasy point is the same. You just have to keep in mind that it is a multiple point of 12 to form the little tree as we knit.
MATERIALS: remnants of wool or thread. In this case I have used cotton thread with a 2 mm strand. thick. 4mm crochet hook. The ideal is to use a slightly smaller needle than the one we would normally use to knit with the yarn, so we can make sure that the fabric is tight and the tree motif looks good and the cover does not stretch with use. scissors. yarn needle. jars. SAMPLE: 3 rows in double crochet = 7 cm.
DIAGRAM: The cover begins by knitting from the base upwards. First we are going to knit 5 rows with double crochet increases. From round 6 we are going to knit straight following the fantasy stitch diagram. As they progress they will see that the little tree is forming. To finish we are going to make 2 rounds of decreases to make sure that the cover adapts to the shape of the jar that becomes narrower at the top. In the event that the jar you are using is completely straight, do not make these decreases, knit straight at half a point.
In the last round we will weave a round of fans to decorate the work and that will serve to cover the jagged edge of the jar.
The difference between the day and night bottle is incredible. The colors look beautiful during the day and the motif looks even better at night with a lit candle.
You can develop these ideas and use your different decoration creativity to create your own cute and aesthetic decorative products. You can knit with colored threads, combine colors, or knit another lace or edge. They can also add other details such as small tassels or decorative pompoms. Put labels, buttons or appliqués on it. Use the cords to agitate the mouth of the jar. As a vein, the options are many, the limit is in your imagination.
