In May on Bainbridge Island, we’re just starting to see the wildflowers. Whip up a few of these vase cozies now though, and you’ll be ready for those spontaneous bouquets that come home with you all summer long. You’ll just need a few jars from “that” cabinet in your kitchen.
Finished Measurements: Approx. 9.5” circumference, to fit a 10-11” circumference wide mouth pint jar. (Note that the height of this piece is easily adjustable if your jar is bigger than a pint.)
Materials: 1 skein(s) The Lamb & Kid Kiddo in either put-up (220 yds/50g or 437 yds/100g). Or use a few colors of Kiddo and plan several vases and some scrappy socks. Each vase cover for a standard pint jar will use approx. 60 yards in total.
Sample Shown: Shown in colors Downy, Terrapin, Pop Rocks, and Sweetie.
Gauge: 17 stitches = 4” in single crochet, blocked. Exact gauge is not critical for this project, but you do want to achieve a fabric that holds its shape when pulled around your jar.
