Crochet Mason Jar Cozy Pattern

The hot mason jar trend is still going strong. Mason jars are great for storage, beverages, even salads! Keep your jar safe with this quick and easy mason jar cozy pattern.


Materials needed:
100% cotton yarn (I used Bernat Handicrafter)
A size I (5.50mm) crochet hook
A mason jar (pattern is written for a 20 oz jar I recycled from pasta sauce)
Scissors
Yarn needle

Pattern:

To begin – chain 4 and slip stitch to first stitch to form a circle.

Row 1 – chain 1 (does not count as a stitch here or throughout pattern), do 6 single crochet (sc) into circle, join to first sc.

Row 2 – chain 1, do 2 sc into same stitch and each stitch around, join to first sc = 12sc

Row 3 – chain 1, do *2 sc into same stitch, 1 sc into next stitch, repeat from * until you have 18sc. Join to first sc.

Row 4 – chain 1, do *2 sc into same stitch, 1 sc into next 2 stitches, repeat from * until you have 24sc. Join to first sc.

Row 5 – chain 1, do *2 sc into same stitch, 1 sc into next 3 stitches, repeat from * until you have 30sc. Join to first sc.

Row 6 – chain 1, do 1 sc into same stitch and 1 sc into back loop only of each stitch around. Join to first sc. This will create a lip for the bottom of the jar.

Row 7 – chain 1, do 1 sc in each stitch around.

Row 8 to 25 – repeat row 7. Be sure to count your stitches on each row so you only have 30 each round.

Row 26 – after joining last row, do 1 sc in same stitch and 1 sc in each stitch around, join to first sc. Tie off and weave in ends.

Once finished, I recommend blocking the cozy by sliding it over the jar (it will be snug) and spritz with a light mist of water and let dry. To resize for different jars – for the first few rounds, stop increasing when the circle is the size of the round markings on the bottom of the jar. Then you can start on the “lip row” and continue on with the pattern for the length you want the cozy. To wash, throw in with your regular towel load (no fabric softener) and block it on a jar to dry overnight.


You may share this post with a link back to mrsbrits.blogspot.ca, you can also do anything you wish with your finished creations. There are thousands of crochet tutorials online, while this is how I make my dishcloths, if you do find a duplicate tutorial it is purely coincidental. I ask you do not copy my instructions or pictures and post as your own.
