What’s cuter than a basket filled with treats? A Basket Jar filled with treats! It’s like a mini picnic basket in a jar. This cover is a simple but unique gift to knit for loved ones. Fill it with any candy or treat of your choice! If you’d like, gift it with a tealight so the recipient can use it as a tealight holder too. You can change up the look and use variegated or self-striping yarn for fun, natural yarn for simple and elegant, and sparkly yarn for a bit of glamour! For an easy-breezy knit, the gift and decorating ideas are endless.

The pattern includes instructions for two jar sizes:

The small jar cover fits a 16oz/pint jar; measurements 5.2” (13.2 cm) tall, 2.5” (6.4 cm) opening.

The large jar cover fits a 32oz/quart jar; measurements 6.9” (17.5 cm) tall, 2.5” (6.4 cm) opening.
