Privy Preserves Accessories


Well, here they are... the accessories to the Privy Preserves Kitchen Set!
First the potholder, then the hand soap cover.

Privy Preserves Accessories: (Potholder, and Hand soap Cover)
(c) Designed and written by Beansieleigh (TS) February 19, 2009

Abbreviations Used in Both of Following Patterns:
ch = chain
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
sc dec = single crochet decrease
BLO = Back Loops Only
sk = skip
dc = double crochet

Potholder:
A pretty but practical addition to the "Privy Preserves" Kitchen Set, this piece is nice in that it is
worked in one long piece, then just folded in half, for easier ruffle around the top, and a little less
sewing of pieces together later on!

Materials Needed:
Peaches n Creme Cotton yarn (about 2 oz.) in choice of "preserves" color
Peaches n Creme Cotton yarn (about 1 oz.) white
Size G crochet hook
A small amount of acrylic yarn or embroidery floss to embroider label
Ribbon may be used for woven tie with bow, but yarn may be used if preferred.
scissors and yarn needle

Level of Difficulty: Some experience needed, perhaps, but I think a beginner could give this a try!!

Gauge: Not important

Note: Throughout this project, unless otherwise instructed, each row will begin with chain 1.

Instructions:
Ch 21
Row 1: Sc across.
Row 2: 2 sc in first st, sc across, 2 sc in last st. (22 sc)
Row 3: 2 sc in first st, sc across, 2 sc in last st. (24 sc)
Row 4-26: Sc in each st across.
Row 27- 29: Sc dec over the first 2 st, sc in each st across, to sc dec over the last 2 st.
(By the end of Row 29, you should have 18 sc.)
Row 30-31: Sc in each st across. Fasten off, while attaching white.
Row32 through 33: Sc in each st across.
Row 34: In BLO, sc in each st across.
Row 35: Working in BOTH loops again, (sc in next st, ch 1, sc in next st) across. (6 ch-1 spaces)
Row36: Sc in each st and ch-1 space across. (18 sc)
Row 37: Sc in each st across.
Row 38: Ch 12, the sl st down the chain to beginning of Row 38. Insert hook through end of chain,
yarn over hook, pull yarn through both loops on hook. (Hanging Loop made) Proceed to sc in
each st across. (18 sc)
Row 39 -41: Sc in each st across.
Row 42: (Sc in next st, ch 1, sc in next st) around. (6 ch-1 spaces formed)
Row 43: Sc in each st and ch-1 space across.
Row 44: In BLO, sc in each st across. Fasten and switch to red(or preserves color chosen).
Row 45-46: Sc in each st across.
Row 47-49: 2 sc in first st, sc in each st across, 2 sc in last st. (20, 22, ending with 24 sc.)
Row 50-72: Sc in each st across.
Row73-75: Sc dec over first 2 st, sc in each st across, to sc dec over last 2 st. (22, 20, ending
with 18 sc at the end of Row 75.) Fasten yarn, leaving enough yarn tail to sew sides together.
You may do this now or after embroidered label is sewn onto your "jar".

Label:
Here you will crochet and embroider a large canning jar label, just exactly as you did for the
Large Privy Preserve Jar:

Ch 8.
Rnd 1: sc into second ch from hook and into next 5 st. 3 sc in next st; then working opposite
side of the chain, sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in the last st, join with sl st.
Rnd 2: ch 1, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st,
sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st. Join round with sl st.
Rnd 3: 2 sc in first st, sc in next 7 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in
next 7, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, join round with a sl st.
Rnd 4: sc in same st, ch 3. (sc in next st, ch 3) around. (24 ch 3 loops made).
Fasten yarn, leaving a long enough yarn tail to applique label. But FIRST, embroider the word
"Jelly" onto your label. You may choose to use embroidery floss, but I preferred to split a 4-ply
strand of yarn into a two-ply strand to embroider with. Once I finished this, I then sewed the
label onto the front of my canning jar, fastening off and weaving in the end of my yarn. (Sew sides of jar together now, if you have not yet done so.)

Top Ruffle:
Now take your potholder, backside towards you, and upside down, and insert hook into any unused loop in Row 44, closest to the right side edge of white top section. Ch 1, sc in same st, 5 dc in next st, (sc in next st, 5 dc in next st) all the way around the front to the back again, to finish the round with a sl st to the first sc made in this round. Fasten off, and weave in end.

You may use ribbon to weave through ch-1 spaces of Row 35 and those at the back of the jar,
around to the front again, to tie ends of ribbon or yarn into a bow. If using yarn, ch approx. 75,
more or less depending upon the size bow you may want. Fasten off, and Enjoy!!


Hand Soap Cover:

Materials Needed:
Small amounts of acrylic yarns were used for this project, making it nice for using up scraps!
Size G crochet hook
Scissors and a yarn needle
Ponytail Elastic (preferably without the metal)
Ribbon optional for woven tie with bow, or yarn may be used.
7.5 oz bottle of handsoap was used for this project.

Note: Throughout this project, unless otherwise instructed, each round will begin with a ch 1.

Instructions:
Starting at the bottom, ch 9.

Rnd 1: sc in second ch from hook, sc in next 6 ch, 3 sc in the next ch. Now working on
opposite side of chain, sc in next 6 ch, sc in the last, to join round with a sl st. (18 sc)
Rnd 2: Sc in first st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in the next st, 2 sc in
the next st, sc in the next 6 st, 2 sc in the last, then join round with a sl st.
Rnd 3: 2 sc in same st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in the
next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, sl st to join the round.
(28 sc)
Rnd 4: In BLO, sc in each st around.
Rnd 5-21: sc in each st around. Fasten to change to white.
Rnd 22: Sc in each st around.
Rnd 23: In BLO, sc in each st around.
Rnd 24: (sc in 2 st, ch 1, sk next st, sc in next st) around.
Rnd 25: Sc in each st around.
Rnd 26: Take white elastic, and sc around elastic AND into each st around, thus covering
the elastic as you go. Join round with a sl st. Fasten off and weave in end.

Top Ruffle:
Holding piece upside down, attach white to an unused loop, either at the back or side of your
"jar" (up to you). Ch 1, sc in same st, 5 dc in next st. (Sc in next st, 5 dc in next st) around.
Fasten off and weave in end.

Teeny-Weeny Label:
With white, ch 6.
Rnd 1: Sc in second ch from hook, and in next 3 st, 3 sc in the next st; then working on
opposite side of chain, sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st, sl st to join the round.
Rnd 2: Sc in same st, ch 3, (sc in next st, ch 3) around, sl st to join the round. Fasten off, and
weave in end.

Here, you may choose to embroider something on the label, but I chose not to, as the space is so
small I did not want the forced and sloppy look I, personally, might end up with!

Tie:
If not using ribbon, and you choose to use yarn, then ch approx. 60, more or less, if preferred.
Weave through ch-1 spaces of Rnd 24, tying ends into a bow.

You're finished! Insert bottle, and WASH THOSE HANDS!! (0: Enjoy!!
