I love decorating my home with colorful crochet!!  After whipping up a few Rainbow Ridges Can Cozies..  I decided my spoon jar needed some sprucing up!!  With a slight amount of pattern changing… You can make the Rainbow Ridges Jar Cozy to fit any size jar, bottle or can!!  This pattern is for a Pint Mason Jar, and at the bottom of the pattern I will give you the stitch count for adjusting to other sizes…  Let’s brighten up our homes for the summer!!


Materials:

Worsted Weight Yarn ~ Multiple colors in just a few yards each… great for stash busting! I used Lily’s Cream and Sugar Cotton in multiple colors!!

Hook ~ H

 

Stitches:

Ch ~ Chain     St ~ Stitch     Bl ~ Back Loop     FPdc ~ Front Post Double Crochet     Sl St ~ Slip Stitch     Sc ~ Single Crochet     Dc ~ Double Crochet     Reverse Single Crochet

Instructions:

Change to 1st color

Round 23.  Join in any st, reverse sc around. Join to beginning

Finish off.

Congratulations!!  You now have a Rainbow Ridges Can Cozy!!

Alternations

To change the width of your project you need an even amount of stitches. When you get to row 5, you can add 2 increases evenly so you end up with a total of 32, then follow the directions just keeping in mind your count will be 32, not 30.  If you want it even larger, you can add an extra row after row 5 and sc 2 in a st, then sc in next 4… repeat around. With this increase you will end up with 36 sts.  Just keep in mind that will be row 6 and the following rows will all change-up by one number.  If you want your project taller,,, Just add more rows continuing to use rows 10 & 11 then finish off with row 22 for the last row.

Happy Crocheting!!
