Creative Crochet: Mason Jar Cozy

I had hoped to have my son's ripple blanket completed by now, but I've been, er, distracted by other projects. Pinterest is a "dangerous place" when it comes to inspiration! Do you have a Pinterest board dedicated to crochet? Please share in comments. I can NEVER have too many ideas pinned!

If only I had more time and more yarn...

My pastor's wife celebrated a birthday last week. She makes beautiful beaded jewelry, something I haven't been able to figure out. She gave me some pretty earrings for my birthday in December so I wanted to make something for her. A Mason Jar cozy seemed like the perfect gift since she sips water out of a Mason Jar.

It's super quick and easy! Since my cozy was for a quart size Mason Jar, I started with the 4 increasing rounds, but I think next time I'd only crochet 3 rounds (or 30 stitches). I like a snug fit. And I only crocheted 4 rounds of SC instead of 5 (Rounds 5-9). The result was a simple, tight cozy with texture in a worsted weight cotton-blend lavender.



I'm sharing my crocheting creations over at The Philosopher's Wife (Mondays)Lucy Blossom Crafts (Mondays), Small Things (Wednesdays), Oombawka Design (Wednesdays), and Natural Suburbia (Fridays).

  3. A lovely idea. It would also make pretty storage for make up brushes on a dressing table. :)

    1. Definitely! And I'm sure the pattern can be easily adjusted for different sized jars, even taller bowls (wider openings).

    1. Thanks, Lucy! I'm pretty sure she will. She doesn't crochet, but she creates with beads. She understands are special something homemade is!
