Granny Rose Vase Sweater

For my dear friend Donna
 Would you like to make one, too?
If so, here's how it's done. :-)
Wash out a jar.
This one was a big one that held garlic stuffed green olives...yum!
 Gather some yarn leftovers.
 Make four roses from the Granny Rose CAL
week #2 here.
Make the leaf row from
week #3 here.
Make the granny rose square base from
week #4 here.
 These four squares are connected with sc's.
Crochet around and around with sc and dc,
decreasing to fit your jar.
 Dress the jar.
Add flowers...
these were actually green like the light green yarn, but photographed yellow.
Go figure?
 Stop and smell the roses...
...deliver to a loved one!

  6. Thank you for the sweet comments. These real roses smelled so good, but the jar still smelled a little like pickles, haha. :-)

  8. I just had a hard time opening up a jar of pickles. Hubby tried. Oldest son tried. And when I got it back and gave it one more try, it opened -- and I had pickle juice all down my chest. :/ Your granny pickle jar cover turned out so pretty. Have a fabulous day. Tammy

  14. I see hat potential here.... This could be really cute on a plant pot too.

    Funny how hard it can be to get rid of that pickle smell. :)
