Here you can find my free pattern for a quick crochet glass cover, the perfect things to keep out all the bugs, insects and wasps.
This design came about as I need to keep insects out of my glass, and though, I know, I’ll make a crochet glass cover!

As I type this, The UK is in the midst of a super heatwave, and I adore the hot weather, and we’ve had it for 2 months now. It may surprise you to read this, but in the UK, we never have weather like this, the last hot summer on record was 1976 – before I was born!
It’s 32 degrees today, and the usual temperature is about 24 degrees. If we got a temperature of over 20 degree for over half of the school summer holidays we’d be over the moon! So this is rare.
Quick crochet glass cover – free pattern
The heat, and the summer can only mean one thing. Last week saw the arrival of the wasps. Loads of them, absolutely everywhere, and the UK not being ready for this kind of weather, we do not generally have air conditioning in our houses – because it never gets this hot!
So we have all the windows and doors open to try and cool the houses down but this then gives the wasps an easy route in, where they seem to find any drink and buzz around before helping themselves to your drink!
So, in my attempt to prevent Mr Wasp (and all his friends), I’ve made a glass cover, using crochet and beads of course!
How to make a crochet glass cover
This is a really easy quick pattern to make.
You’ll start by:
- Thread the beads onto the yarn.
- Make a magic ring
- Crochet a circle
- Chain, and add the beads to each point.
- Fasten off, weave in ends.
- Block the finished glass cover
You will need
Scrap of yarn and appropriate hook size. I’ve used Hobbycraft Cotton blend plain, and a 5.0mm Clover hook
8 pony beads
Abbreviations (USA Terms Used)
CH – Chain
DC – Double crochet
HDC – half double crochet
SC – Single crochet
SS – Slip Stitch
To make a crochet glass cover:
Thread your beads onto your yarn.
Make a magic loop/ ring
Round 1: Ch2 (counts a st throughout), 7 HDC in the loop, ss to top of the ch2 to join [8 sts]
Round 2: Ch3, 1 DC in the base of the chain, 2DC in each st around. [16sts]
Round 3: Ch3, 1 DC in base if chain, ch 1, *skip 1 stitch, 2DC in next st, ch1 * repeat [16 sts]
Round 4: * Ch4, move one bead up to next to the hook, chain around the bead (securing it in place), Ch4, SC in the Ch 1 gap from the previous round * repeat 7 more times.
