I was scouring the Tupperware cupboard and found a glass jar but, “gasp”, no lid. That means trash can, or does it have to? Mostly yes, but in this case someone in the household needed a container for her combs and brushes. She is actually the only person in this household with hair of any length and by golly does she like to style it. AT THE AGE OF 3.5!!!!!
So I figured that I’d make her something sparkly to hold some of her hair implements. Believe me, there are a bunch of those containers (see posts on pretty paper boxes and crochet baskets).
Ch 4. Join with sl st to first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc now and throughout), 11 hdc in ring. Join. (12 hdc)
Rnd 2: Ch 2, hdc in same st, 2 hdc in each st around. Join. (24 hdc)
Rnd 3: Ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st*, repeat from * to * around. Join. (36 hdc)
Rnd 4: Ch 2, hdc in next st, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next two stitches*, repeat from * to * around. Join. (48 hdc)
Rnd 5: Ch 2. Working in FRONT LOOPS ONLY, hdc in each st around. Join.
Rnd 6. Ch 2. Working through BOTH loops, hdc in each st around. Join.
Remaining rounds: hdc in ea hdc around (no joining) until you reach the neck of the jar.
