Crochet to the Rescue!

I visited a friend’s house and saw a glass jar in her kitchen.  I fell in love with it and I was on a mission to find this jar.  Finally, I found it at Target.  I was so happy to finally find this jar.  I immediately put jasmine rice in it.  It was an immediate accent piece in the kitchen.  Unfortunately, the lid for the jar broke a couple weeks ago.  I went to target and couldn’t find this jar.  I went to Homegoods, Marshalls and T. J. Maxx but I couldn’t find a jar similar to the one I have.  I didn’t want to throw away the jar just because the lid was broken.  So, I decided to crochet a lid.  I just love it.  I didn’t have a crochet pattern.  I made it up as I went along. The yarn I used is from the Lion Brand Yarn company-Cotton Bamboo.  It’s machine washable and the lid fits like a glove. Below is a free pattern to crochet lid for a jar.  Even if your lid is not broken, it’s a quick project to add a touch of color to your kitchen.

Crochet a Dishcloth Pattern

Well, I just love dishcloths.  It is a necessity in the kitchen.  Although it is a necessity, you can add a little color to your kitchen crocheting your own dishcloth.  The key is to use 100% cotton yarn, or a cotton blend.  I decided to use Lion Brand Yarn’s  Cotton Bamboo which is a cotton blend.  The reason I chose this yarn is the variety of spring colors that are available: magnolia, persimmon, hibiscus, hyacinth and gardenia; to name a few.  Below is an easy dishcloth pattern.

Row 1: Skip the 1st chain and sc across.

Rows 2-3: Sc across

Rows 5-33:  Repeat rows 1-4
