There are many reasons you may want to cover your mason jars. You might need to cover some vegetables or liquids that you’re fermenting to keep the light from destroying the enzymes. You may want to cover your jars for decoration, to minimize breakage, or to control the condensation from your beverage. There are many great jar covers out there to choose from. The giveaway is for the jar covers in the photos below and were handmade by me.
I may just be learning about all the things you can do with canning jars, but I’ve been crocheting for 20 years and have decided to try my hand at crochet for mason jars. I’m starting with the two patterns I tested out this week. The solid cover above and the decorative lacy cover below.
I’ve decided to give away my test subjects, so enter to win this set of eight crocheted mason jar covers! The winner will receive the four solid covers that are great at keeping light out of your veggie ferments and the four decorative lace covers, which are great for candles!
I had a hard time choosing a color to start with, so I ended up with four colors. I used Sugar’n Cream by Lily, 100% cotton yarn. The colors I chose are Sage Green, Tangerine, Warm Brown and Yellow. All of the covers fit the quart mason jars, regular and wide mouth. I hope whoever wins enjoys these crocheted jar covers as much as I enjoyed making them!
UPDATE: Even though the giveaway is over, you can still purchase the mason jar crocheted covers at my crochet website!
