I finally got around to working out a pattern for these mason jar covers. This is my first crochet pattern, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll try to help as best I can. Also, I feel it necessary to point out that you should used caution when using them with real candles. Make sure that you make your ties long enough, so as not to burn doorknobs or your house down! If in doubt, I strongly suggest battery operated candles.
If this pattern proves too difficult, or you don’t crochet, I can make them to order (just send me a message)
