Crocheted Jug Cover

Lynne Rowe’s jug cover is both stylish and functional

  • Crocheted Jug Cover
    Get kitted out
      • Self-patterning yarn: one 100g ball, we used Opal Premium Cotton Sock yarn in violet green (yarn A)
      • Hook, 2.5mm
      • 27 small glass beads with a 1mm hole
      • Sewing needle and thread
    Size

      Diameter: 20cm

    Stitches used
      • Chain (ch)
      • Treble (tr)
      • Slip stitch (sl st)
    Threading beads
      1. Thread a short length of strong sewing thread onto a needle and tie the ends in a knot. Take yarn A and thread the yarn end through the centre of the knotted loop for approximately 10cm. Fold yarn over. Thread the beads onto the sewing needle then push them down the sewing thread and onto the yarn.

      2. Thread all 27 beads in this way. Push the beads down the yarn, away from the yarn end. You will need to keep pushing the beads down the yarn until you need to use them on Rnd 10. To place a bead, simply slide the top bead up to your crochet hook when instructed so that it sits next to the hook whilst you work your stitch as advised.

      Make a magic ring and work Rnd 1 instructions into the magic ring then pull the ring tight to close the hole.

      Alternatively, make 2ch, and work Rnd 1 into the first of 2ch.

      1. Rnd 1: 4ch (counts as 1tr, 1ch), (1tr into loop, 1ch) 8 times. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 4ch. (9tr and 9 1ch spaces).

      2. Rnd 2: Sl st into next 1ch space, 3ch (counts as 1tr) 1tr into same 1ch space, 2ch, (2tr into next 1ch space, 2ch) 8 times. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 3ch. (9 groups of 2tr and 9 2ch spaces).

      3. Rnd 3: Sl st into next tr, sl st into next 2ch space, 3ch (counts as 1tr) 2tr into same 2ch space, 3ch, (3tr into next 2ch space, 3ch) 8 times. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 3ch. (9 groups of 3tr and 9 3ch spaces).

      4. Rnd 4: Sl st into next two tr, sl st into next 3ch space, 3ch (counts as 1tr), 4tr into same 3ch space, 2ch, (5tr into next 3ch space, 2ch) 8 times. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 3ch. (9 groups of 5tr and 9 2ch spaces).

      5. Rnd 5: 3ch (counts as 1tr), (1tr into every tr, 3tr into 2ch space) to the end. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 3 ch. (72 tr).

      6. Rnd 6: 5ch (counts as 1tr, 2ch), miss next tr, (1tr, 2ch, miss next tr) to the end. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 5ch. (36 tr and 36 2ch spaces).

      7. Rnd 7: Sl st into next 2ch space, 3ch (counts as 1tr), 2tr into same space, (3tr into next 2ch space) to the end. Join with a sl st to 3rd of first 3ch. (108 tr).

      8. Rnd 8: Rep Round 6. (54 tr and 54 2ch spaces).

      9. Rnd 9: (2tr 2ch 2tr) into next 2ch space, 1dc into next 2ch space) to the end.

      10. Rnd 10: Sl st into each of the next two tr, sl st into first 2ch space, (5ch, place bead, sl st into 2nd ch from hook, 4ch, dc into next 2ch space) to the end. On last repeat, do not dc into next 2ch space, instead join with a sl st to first ch. Cut yarn and pull through loop on hook. Weave all loose ends of yarn into wrong side of work and trim. The glass beads will add weight to the edges of the jug cover and help to keep it in place on your jug.
