Mason Cover:
You will find the original pattern here:
I absolutely love this pattern. I have used it in many projects, and it never fails to make my project stand out

The following are my changes and additions
Round 5: 2 Hdc’s in 1st st, Hdc in the next 7 stitches, 2 Hdc’s in the next st, Hdc’s in the rest of the stitches, Sl st, ch 1
You will then do the same amount of Sc’s rows (5 rows)
I then did 17 rows of the cluster stich (sc + Dc in stitch, skip next stich, repeat)
I then attached the brown and made 4 rows of Sc
Tie off weave in ends

Leaf: Make 2 (H hook)
Ch 9
Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next, Hdc in next, Dc in the next 2 stitches, Hdc in next, Sc in the last 2 stitches
Now working on other side of the chain, repeat same as the above
Then chain enough of the green to go around the top of the jar and to be able to tie a knot
Weave the chain strand thought the top of the brown sc’s, attach the leaves and tie
