Lucy, this trim is beautiful! I'm going to take your idea for giving trimmed jars/candles for the holidays. I truly appreciate all of your fantastic tutorials and your photography.

Warmest regards,
Ohio, USA


Can't wait to have a go at this. It's adorable. Thanks so much!


So adorable! I love it!


Thanks tonnes for posting this delightful tutorial - I just love visiting your page and reading up on all of your tips and tricks :)
I have dug out some of my mum's canning jars from the shed, washed them up a bit and I plan on decorating them with this little trim tutorial!

I nabbed Christmas coloured yarn at the craft store yesterday and I'm going to fill the jars with dry cupcake ingredients and such for Christmas gifties!!

*off to crochet!*


Thank yooooooou! :D


This would make great tinsel on a tree... wish I could get my head around crochet, tis why I read here, you keep inspiring me to find time to sit down and figure it out.


Thank you sooooooo much for this tutorial. I've been crocheting basic patterns since my grandmother first taught me 30+ years ago and never ever believed I could follow a pattern. However, I'm almost finished making the front of a pillow using your blooming flower pattern and I'm loving it. Not as colourful as yours though as I wanted it to coordinate with my bedroom's colour scheme.
And now this is perfect timing for this pattern as I need to whip up a couple more handmade things for an advent swap I'm taking part in this weekend.!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I so love stopping by your dear blog all the time for inspiration about all things hooky.
Will come back in next day or say and contribute for your time and effort.
It is much, much appreciated.
Have a beautiful day. Michey xx


your tutorial is brilliant and so clear... I have made one and will make more once I find more jam jars. they are so pretty thank you

Lucy girl, I LOVE this! I'll definitely be making some of these for my candle jars. I may make some longer ones as curtain pull-backs for my daughter's room, too!


Amaaaaaaaaaaaazing; a pretty trim will be my next project after my ripple scarf (to practise the ripple pattern). I am so enjoying rediscovering hooking after a 15 year break - thankyou so much for your inspiration. Attic 24 is my guilty pleasure!

I've been following your blog for a while now - most enjoyable. I'm actually busy with a lovely hexagon baby blanket out of 100% bamboo yarn. So soft!

Your link to subscribe to the blog feed doesn't work - just gives code (both on the bottom right and top of page). I'd love to get your blog in my inbox.

Thanks for the colour and hooky inspirations.
