Spruce up your home office or living room with this fun and pretty project. The filet style pattern is designed in a way that allows for flexibility with the yarn and hook sizes to truly customize it to the size you need. Re-use those old mason jars by making them fun and colourful displays to store small items around the house. Cotton balls, crochet hooks, scrap yarn bits, pencils/pens…the list goes on for uses. The pattern mentions that only a small amount of yarn is used (depending on your jar of course) so it’s a great little project for leftover yarn.
