Crochet jar cover

Here is a little crocheted jar cover I did in about 1 hour last Sunday.

I used some leftover cotton yarn and a 1.25 crochet hook.

- Work 12 dc in a magic hoop, tighten to form a ring and attach to the first dc with an sc.

- Continue adding circles till you have enough to cover the base of your jar.

   The magic formula for working in circles is such :
   The first round you do two dc in each stitch.
   The next round you do two dc in every other stitch.
   The next round you count three stitches, then work two dc in it, and so on and so forth working two dc into the 4th, then the 5th, then the 6th stitch as you add rows.

- When you have made the base, work your way up by stitching 1 dc, 2 sc, 1dc, 2 sc.
  Your work will eventually start to curl up and you will have a tube shape.

- The last row I made 1 sc in one of the holes, then 1sc 5dc, a picot ( 3 sc attached at the first sc ), 5dc, 1sc. Then 1 sc into the next hole, and so on and forth.

- Finish off with a pretty ribbon.
