This month's Pinterest Challenge is "From the Kitchen".
I wasn't sure what I was going to do until I stared at this bottle on my desk. It was time to save some glass jars and turn them into useful decor pieces in my office.
I had upcycled a peanut butter, jam, pizza sauce, roasted red pepper, and one of my husband's vitamin jars. The inspiration for this project can be found here.
I had two different kinds of patterns. One is a shelled pattern, and the other pattern looks more like a bridge.
I had used a size F hook and medium weight yarn (size 4), and a jar.
Both patterns start out the same. Make the base.
Row 1: 6 sc in a magic ring or make a chain 4 ring.
Working in continuous rounds.
Row 2: 2 sc in every sc
Row 3: *2 sc, sc in next* around
Row 4: *2 sc, sc in next 2 * around
Keep increasing by 6 until your base is about the same size as the base of the jar, even a little bit less. Once you get the size you need, slip stitch in the next stitch.
The Shell Pattern:
Row 1: Chain 3 (counts as a dc), skip 2 stitches, [3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc] in the next stitch, *skip 2 stitches, dc in the next stitch, skip 2 stitches [3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc] in the next stitch, * repeat around join with chain 3.
Row 2: Chain 3 (counts as a dc), skip 3 stitches, [3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc] in the chain 2 space, *skip 3 stitches, dc in the next dc, skip 3 stitches [3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc] in the next chain 2 space, * repeat around join with chain 3.
Repeat Row 2 until you have the desired height.
Optional ending rows:
Row 1: slip stitch to chain 2 space, ch 1 and sc in the same space, chain 5, * sc in the next chain 2 space, chain 5, * repeat around joining with first sc
Row 2: ch 1, sc in in same stitch, 4 sc in chain 5 space, *sc in next sc, 4 sc in chain 5 space, * repeat around, join with first sc. finish off.
The Bridge Pattern:
Row 1: ch 1, sc in the same stitch and sc in the next 2 stitches, chain 3, skip 3 stitches, *sc in the next 3 stitches, chain 3 skip 3 stitches* repeat around, slip stitch with the first sc and the next sc.
Row 2: ch 1, sc in the same stitch, skip next sc, 5 dc in the chain 3 space, *skip 1 sc, sc in the next sc, skip next sc, 5 dc in the chain 3 space, * repeat around slip stitch with first sc and the next 2 dc.
Repeat row 1 and 2 until you have the desired height. When finishing row 2 for the last time, just join with the first stitch to finish off.
I also made videos on how to make these:
I hope you get check out other projects from the Sustainable Pinterest Challenge. I know I will.
