Jar Covers Pattern (For Home Canned Gifts)

Jar Covers Pattern (For Home Canned Gifts)

by Elizabeth Mareno

I have made quite a few baskets of home-canned goodies for friends and family as Christmas presents in the past. The baskets desperately needed some "dressing up", so one afternoon I sat down and came up with this pattern. It's a 10 row from start to finish, easy-peasy, fast pattern. Color coordinate with the goodies being given or use holiday colors to complete your basket of blessings. I hope you enjoy!
