Sweet pot covers: A written and a graphic pattern

Hello Hello Hello!

Sweet morning to you all! This is for you my sweeties the tutorial of the jam pot covers! I’ve made a written one and a graphic one for those of you who prefer graphic patterns (like myself ;) )

For the pot covers I made I used as yarn : Stylecraft special DK, a very good acrylic yarn, with a 3.5mm crochet hook. I still have some stylecraft leftover yarn from my Granny MONSTER I made back in 2010 :) I love leftovers :)

So? Are you readyyyyyyyyyyyyy? Prepare some leftover yarn, a good crochet hook … aaaaaaaaand… let’s dooooooooooooo it!

For this pattern I’ll use the U.K terms.

Remember a tr (U.K terms) = dc (U.S terms) = bride (France)

and a dc (U.K terms) = sc (U.S terms) = maille serree (France)

Written pattern:

Make 4 ch and close to obtain a circle.

Rnd1: Inside the circle, crochet 12 treble (U.K terms).

Rnd 2: Increase: crochet 2 tr. in every tr. of the previous rnd. Total: 24 tr 

Rnd3: Increase: crochet 1tr. on the first tr. of the previous rnd then 2 tr.on the second tr. of the previous rnd, 1tr, 2 tr, 1tr, 2tr etc etc to obtain in total: 36 tr

Rnd4: As round 3: 1tr, 2 tr, 1tr, 2tr etc etc … Total: 54 tr

Rnd5: As rnd 3 and 4: 1tr, 2tr, 1tr, 2tr etc etc … Total: 81tr

Rnd6: make 1tr on the first tr of the previous rnd then 1 ch. leaving one tr of the previous rnd empty. 1tr, 1ch, 1tr, 1ch etc

This round, round6, is made for the passage of the chain you’ll crochet after. You have to pull this chain and make a beautiful bow to transform your doily into a pot cover…(see next pic how the red chain has been inserted) 

Rnd7: Increase: 1tr on the tr of the previous round, 2tr on the chain of the previous round, 1tr, 2tr, 1tr, 2tr etc etc

Rnd8: 4dc on the first 4 tr of the previous round then 1dc-3ch-1dc on the 5th tr of the previous round so: 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc-3ch-1dc,  1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc-3ch-1dc, etc etc

You have now a small doily :)

Crochet a chain of 100ch. to pass between the trebles of round 6.

Pull this chain and make a beautiful bow! You’ve done it :)

Graphic pattern:

Symbols used:

Round 1 to 7:


That’s it! A very simple, quick project to use all your leftovers :)

You have now a beautiful jam pot cover to brighten up your kitchen table! or a small colorful doily… when you’ve already eaten all the jam ;)

Happy crocheting!

    Thanks so much for this Angie…they are so sweet! :)x

  5. Oh you are a sweet heart, you give yourself of this trouble to write the patterns for all the crazy crochet lover out there! Bless you.
    I like it is very sweet. As you might know I live in the UK, famous for the tea and tea creams. That is afternoon teas with cakes and sweet things. This jam/marmalade top is very popular, also to cover the sugar cubes on the table. What I noticed though, that the yarn is far more fine, I mean, with a fine or thinner thread it sort blends well with the glass…. Some people even hang beads from the corners and it looks very cute.
    Anyway, happy new year and looking forward t keep looking at your pretty things. Inshalla!

    These are so cute. I love the fact that you can use them as coasters once the jam is finished, two gifts in one.
    I have to smile every time I stop past your blog especially on the hot days as it’s like a blast of cool air with all your snow flakes while it’s 30+ celcius outside.
    Have a wonderful 2012

    Really cute pattern! Thank you for sharing with us. I just love all of your cute ideas. I still want to make your little bear pattern. It’s on my list! Happy crocheting…

  11. Darlene says:

    Beautiful little covers!! Thank you also for including the translations on crochet symbols: Yours/ US/ and French. I was attempting to make one of your Grandma Squares yesterday and was having trouble making the translation for myself. Pulled out a copy of “Crochet! Today” magazine and was able to find the list for graphics in the back. I made a few notes and was able to write the pattern down in useable form for myself. And, again, beautiful colors; just stopping by here to look is a pleasure!!

    I am looking for some of the wee white crocheted covers with the beads on that you put onto sugar or jam or even cover the tops of your cream or milk jugs with. I live in the Waikato in New Zealand so it would have to be some place close or even a contact where i can get some one to make me a few…many thanks Lynette

  26. So many beautiful crochet things . Just like a candy store
