About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a quick and easy project you can use throughout the year, you’re in the right place. Crochet mason jar covers in a variety of colors and change them out throughout the year.

With this project you’ll get lots of practice with the double crochet stitch in the round and see how adding a chain in between them can create a little window. Each mason jar cover works up in less than an hour and with only 65 yards of yarn.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as a video tutorial and written instructions to walk you through this crochet mason jar cover from start to finish.
