I found this great ripple stitch online. I just had to give it a try. I actually gave up the first time I tried it. But I really wanted to recycle my cans so I made covers for them. check them out. and the video and link where I found this great crochet pattern.
I'm going to make another for the third can, its going to be soft white.
Here's the link to how to make this textured ripple stitch and the video below
