FREE!!! Crochet Jug Cover Pattern.....

With the cooler weather, in my home, I find that we are more likely to drink water at room temperature than chilled from the fridge.

So out of necessity I've been crocheting 'Jug Covers' and would love to share this pattern with you all...

jug 4
To start - Grab some of your favourite 5ply cotton (I'm using Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton in a Teal shade) and a 4mm hook.

Thread approx 20 buttons onto your yarn. Make sure they thread on easily or you'll find it difficult later on when you need to shuffle them down the yarn as your jug cover grows.

Jelly's Basic Jug Cover

(note : : my jug measures 16' round the top)

Round 1 - Chain 3, 23 treble in the 3rd chain from hook. Join with a slip stitch.

Round 2 - Chain 5, treble in same space, miss 1 treble, *(treble, chain 2, treble) in the next space, miss 1 treble*. Repeat between * * around. Join with a slip stitch to 3rd chain.

Round 3 - Slip Stitch into chain 2 space. Chain 6, Treble in same space. *Treble, chain 3, treble in next chain 2 space*. Repeat between * * round. Join with a slip stitch to 3rd chain.

Round 4 - Chain 1, single crochet in same space, *Chain 6, miss chain 3 space, single crochet in next space*. Repeat between * * round. Join with a slip stitch in single crochet.

Round 5 - Slip stitch in the next 3 chain. Chain 1, single crochet in same space. *Chain 7, single crochet in chain 6 space*. Repeat between * * round. Join with a slip stitch to single crochet.

Round 6 - Chain 10 (position 1-2 buttons on the 7th chain), *Treble in next single crochet, chain 7 (position another 1-2 buttons on the 4th chain)*. Repeat between * * round. Join with a slip stitch to 3rd chain.

Fasten off and weave in ends.


These little covers are so addictive and take no more than 1 hour to make.
