With the craft fair over, it's back to wedding crafts! I finished another jar this afternoon, bringing the count up to nine jars.
This is the jar I made this afternoon with the help of Annaboo's Solomon's Knot Tea Light Tutorial. (You should check out her lovely blog Annaboo's House.) This was my first ever attempt at Solomon's Knot, and I think I pretty much got it! I'll admit that at first I thought I had a hot mess in my hands, but it didn't take long before "oh, sweet!" It's a really fun stitch and to me it looks a little nautical. (Knotical?)
This jar's basket weave look was accomplished by alternating front post and back post double crochets. This may just be my favorite. I love the texture.
A simple two double crochet, chain two pattern.
Scallop pattern from Sasha Kagan's Crochet Inspiration.
I also tried a chevron pattern, (from Crochet Inspiration too), which didn't really translate to the jar as well as I was hoping it would... but it still looks ok.
Now I just have to pick up the pace with the jars, and get the rest of the rocks done! Game time.
