  • 1 Cut yarn

    Cut a 16'' section of yarn to wrap around the top of the jar.

  • 2 Cut, fold & slide yarn

    Cut ten 32'' sections of yarn. Fold each section in half and fold that over the 16'' yarn section. Slide the ends of that section through its loop, pull to form a knot.

  • 3 Spread & wrap yarn

    Spread the knotted sections along the 16'' piece so they are about 1'' apart. Wrap the 16'' yarn section around the top of the jar and knot.

  • 4 Knot yarn

    For the first row, take one yarn length and one length from the next section and knot together about 1'' down from the top of the jar. Continue all the way around the first row.  

  • 5 Continue knotting yarn

    For the second row, grab two lengths of yarn to make a diamond shape, knot them together. Continue all the way around.

  • 6 Continue creating diamond shapes

    Continue to make diamond shapes down and around the jar.

  • 7 Cut & tie yarn

    Cut a new section of yarn, slightly smaller than the circumference of the bottom of the jar. Tie the ends together to form a circle.

  • 8 Tie yarn

    Grab two lengths of the knotted yarn and tie them to the bottom circle of yarn. Continue with the remaining lengths.

  • 9 Trim ends

    Trim the yarn ends.

  • 10 Warp top of jar

    Wrap the top og the jar with another piece of yarn, knot and tuck under to hide the knot.
