The revival of the pint & half (24 oz) jars had Alisa the Yarnista's needles clicking away to modify our Canning Jar Sweater pattern to accommodate this taller jar. This is the handsome finished project for 'Mr. Firefly Fibers' in Spud & Chloe's Manatee next to our original version in Pollen:
Our original samples were knit in Spud & Chloe's fun colors Pollen, Grass and Splash - we love yarn with great color names!
SWEATER really is the perfect yarn for this project: the cotton absorbs moisture (built in coaster), the wool provides some stretch, and the colors... they can't be beat and we've got them all!
You can knit your own Canning Jar Sweater, just get the updated pattern here on Ravelry or at Firefly Fibers. Psst... they make great gifts so you can select more than one color of Sweater to coordinate with our variety of Cuppows!
If you already own the pattern and want the update, here's how:
- Ravelry PDF: We've uploaded the new version! Visit your Ravelry library, click 'update' and print the new version.
- Hard copy from the shop: Just bring your copy in and we'll trade you for a copy that includes the updated sizing!
- Just want the mods for the pint & half jar? Work 9 repeats of the twisted cable rib and 2 additional rounds of the ribbing.
Happy Canning Jar Sweater Knitting!
