This pattern is for a dainty little dual purpose item. Add a tie and you have a beautiful favour bag, that could be used for parties and weddings. Leave the tie off and you have an intricate and fun jar cover, that again could be used for a wedding or party. Add a tealight to a jar and you have a romantic table setting. Ohh the possibilities, and it is so so simple to make!
You will need
fingering weight yarn (4ply)
4mm hook (can be changed to get the size you need, experiment with smaller or larger hooks, smaller or larger yarn also changed the outcome.)
