Jackets for Glasses Pattern

These one piece Jackets will fit most standard iced drink glasses—be they tall or short with square or rounded bottom corners, they will fit nicely and keep condensed moisture from soiling table and clothes.

MATERIALS: A ball of Enterprise Yarn in the body color will make four Jackets—about 5 yds. of color for trim on each. The stars pictured in color on white jacket are from the instructions for Star Spangled Glass Jackets Pattern, and give an idea of how the trim may be varied. Instructions are for the white jackets with colored trim. The bow decoration on colored Jackets are chains 48 sts long, tied into bow and tacked in place.

RING: With white ch 5, sl st in first st. Ch 1, 8 sc in ring, sl st in first sc. Fasten off. With white ch 26, sl st in one st of ring. Ch 1, turn, sk last st of ch, sc in next st, (ch 1, sc in next second st) 12 times, to measure approx. 3¼ in. from center of ring;—for taller muff, each 2 ch added to ch 26 equal ¼ in.).
ROW 2: Ch 1, turn, work in back loop of sts only, for succeeding rows, sc in last sc, (ch 1, sc in next) 12 times. Ch 1, sl st in same sc on Ring (one rib complete).
ROW 3: Ch 1, turn, sk last ch st, sc in next sc, (ch 1, sc in next sc) 12 times. Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until 16 ribs in all are complete, joining to next sc on Ring every fourth row. Fasten off. Sew on wrong side.

To make jackets with vertical stripes of color: work Row 2 to the ch-1 before joining to the Ring, pick up color for stripe, draw through st on Ring and loop on hook at same time to complete the sl st to Ring and continue as above to desired stripe width. Join next color in same way.

TOP EDGE: With color work sc between first 2 ribs made, (ch 2, sc between next 2 ribs) 15 times. Ch 2, sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
ROW 2: Join white with sc in first ch-2 sp, (ch 2, sc in next ch-2 sp) 15 times. Ch 2, sl st in first sc. Fasten off.


The "coke" bottle jacketis a much needed gadget where iced bottles are served—using the glass jacket instructions built up to the wanted height. The same jacket serves to keep nursing bottles warm and can be made to fit 4, 6, or 8 ounce sizes.
