I don’t know about you, but being that I am a regular canner, I need to store a many many Mason jars in my kitchen. Rather than needlessly purchasing/replacing drinking glasses, we just use my jars until I’m ready to use them for canning. This works out really well for us for the most part, until I want to drink something hot out of a Mason jar.
Enter, the Mason Jar Cozy! Ha ha, ok–it’s not THAT innovative, but hey, it’s going to work for me. I thought it might work for you too. Here’s the pattern:
Mason Jar Cozy
This pattern fits a pint sized wide mouth Mason jar.
Here’s what you need:
Let’s get started:
Row 1: Ch 33
Row 2: SC in 2nd ch and all the way across to the end. (32)
Row 3: Ch 3, turn. 10 dc, inc 1. Repeat once. DC to the end of the row. (34)
Rows 4-6: Ch 3, turn. DC all the way across to the end. (34)
Row 7: Ch 1, turn. SC across to the end. (34)
Row 8: Turn (do not ch 1) and sl st all the way across to the end. Do not fasten off.
FOR FINISHING WITH A WHIP STITCH: Fasten off, leaving about a 5 inch tail. Fold your item in half, right sides together. Thread your large needle with Fold finished item in half, right sides together, matching short edges. Whip stitch your ends together and fasten off. Weave excess yarn into your project..
FOR FINISHING WITH A ROW OF SINGLE CROCHET: Fold your item in half, right sides together. SC all the way across and fasten off at the end. Weave excess yarn into your project.
*Editor’s Note: On the latest cozy I crocheted, I add one more row after row 6, which made row 8 the SC row, and row 9 the sl st row. I like it much better!
I hope you enjoy making it, and don’t forget to come back and post a link in the comments so I can see your finished project!
