Can/Jar/Tin cover crochet pattern

This a simple crochet pattern worked in rounds to cover a tin of olives. You can use any jar or tin of any size. This is the first time I am writing a pattern so please bear with me and feel free to point out any mistakes.
I used a 5mm hook and worsted weight yarn. You can use anything as long as you do your measurements right.
Make a chain which can complete a round over your tin's circumference. It should be snug. Slip stitch and join.

Round 1: chain 3 ,1 dc in every chain. Slip stitch to the 3rd chain of beginning chain and join.

Cluster stitch: Yo insert hook in the next stitch, draw a loop. Yo draw through 2 loops,*insert hook in the same stitch , draw a loop, draw through 2 loops*. Repeat from* to* 2 more times. Draw through all loops.
Note: The rows in which you do a cluster stitch, we are going to turn the work, means wrong side faces you. The reason for doing that is this stitch has a concave side on the wrong side and we want that to be on the front.

Round 2: turn your work,  chain 4,*skip the next stitch, cluster in the next stitch, chain 1 and repeat from* all around. Join with a slip stitch.

Round 3: turn your work, sc in the cluster , sc in the chain one stitch all around, join with a slip stitch.

Round 4: chain 5, skip 1, tr in the next stitch, chain 1,*skip 1, tr in the next stitch, chain 1. Repeat from*all around. Join with a slip stitch.

Round 5: chain 1, sc in the tr, sc in the chain 1 space, all around. Join with a slip stitch.

Round 6: Repeat round 2

Round 7: Repeat round 3

Round 8:Repeat round 4.

Round 9:Repeat round 5.

Round 10: repeat round 2

Round 11: repeat round 3

Round 12: dc in each stitch all around. Join with a slip stitch and you are done.
Weave the ends, cover the tin with it. I used a textured turquoise paper to wrap the tin in first, then put the cover on.
