Ahh your back - I have missed you.
Love this quite bright little project, perfect
thanks :-)


Do you think this idea will work on plant pots? You know, the ugly brown ones?


Hello Lucy!
Thanks for sharing so many beautiful things.
I have just tried this and I would like you to see the result.

Hey Lisa Whatever you are doing for garnishing your house. That is admirable.
I have read your profile
Truly inspiring. one thing touches my heart and that is

nice and beautiful!
color combination is awesome.
thanks for sharing.


Finished your crochet bag pattern last week, just made a jar jacket tonight that I'm bringing to work tomorrow to perk up my desk. Next up? thinking of doing that awesome ripple!! Thanks for sharing your colorful creativity!


Just the idea I needed to cover up a nasty brown plastic plant pot on my window sill. Thanks.. I am off to start it now!


Fantastic blog and amazing patterns:)) You rule:)


wow, you are the master :))
cool,thanks for sharing the patterns.
Iam elsa from indonesia by the way :))


Thank you, Lucy ~ you've done it again! I wish all crochet pattern writers had your gift for 'splainin'. They may as well be speaking Latvian as far as I'm able to understand their written directions! And,let's face it, crocheting just isn't that hard.
Love your colors and happy blog very much.
Warm regards~


I, too, have tons of those jars around! One for buttons, one for my daughter's trinkets her and there...you understand, yes? I think I must start to crochet a cozy cover for a few! I also have a few with lids that i have painted quickly for collections of seashells or rocks when the red and white just doesn't feel right.

help, complete novice to crochet, desperate to try, looks like something I might manage. What type of wool and size of hook please. Love your colour combos, make me smile.


god, i love your blog...just finished a jar jacket and am working on an afghan using your neat ripple pattern...posted pics and a link to you today and a day or two ago when i started the ripple...thought you might want to take a peek?...thank you so much for your generosity in sharing patterns/instructions!

i'm new to crocheting as i was given my nan's crocheting needles after she sadly passed away ~ and i'm hooked after my first crocheting lesson with my mum. Love this pattern and it will certainly brighten up my kitchen.xx


I have been looking for something to store some utensils in, so now I am inspired to go find a nice, big boring jar & it will be perfect, with a crochet jacket, sitting on the kitchen bench with my utensils!


Thanks for the jar jacket idea. I've covered a plant pot and vase in my Conservatory.
Love the idea.

See my link.. I was inspired by your jar jackets. Thank you! :)


Oh what a simple idea. I am also loath to recycle the prettier jars just in case! I'm just gettig back into crochet & was hunting for granny square patterns to remind me what to do - when I found your beautful projects. Will do this tomorrow to put the little posies from the garden in!


Hehe... I have about a 1000 of these empty jars just.in.case. too :) I may just have to make a little jacket for one or two!


Thankyou so much for your comment on my blog so glad to have been able to return the inspiration can't wait to see yours when it is done.Hope you enjoy the wine. Couldn't agree more it is so fab!



I have the perfect spider plant (I call her Preggers Magoo) that need just this type of uplift. Thanks for sharing!

I love these! They are adorable. My daughter and I are going to make one of these as a gift for my other daughter. Thanks so much.


Love this idea too :)


Oh my gosh - another wonderful pattern - I am going to be crocheting like crazy. Thanks.
