Free Pattern - Mason Jar Cozy

I wrote this up as a pdf but can't quite seem to get it to link onto my side bar, so for those of you that asked for it, here we go:

Mason Jar Cozy

Needles: 4.5mm straight needles...This cozy is knit flat and then sewn up the back.
Gauge: 16 sts and 26 rows = 4"
Fits a pint mason jar (not the wide mouth)
Notions: One button

Cylinder portion of the cozy: 
Cast on 42 sts. 
Row 1: knit
Row 2: (P2, K2) over the whole row
Row3:  (K2, P2) over the whole row
Row 4: purl
Row 5: knit
Rows 6 and 7: Repeat rows 2 and 3
Rows 8 through 24: stockinette stitch (starting with a purl row)
Rows 25 and 26: repeat rows 2 and 3

bind off.
Weave in ends and sew up the back seam, right sides facing.

Top and Bottom of cozy (Make 2):
Cast on 8 sts
Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: knit, adding 1 stitch to first and last stitches by knitting into the back and front of each of those two stitches
Row 4: purl
Rows 5 through 8: repeat rows 3 and 4 twice
Rows 9 through 14: stockinette stitch, starting with a knit row
Row 15: K2tog (knit 2 together), knit to second last stitch, K2tog
Row 16: purl
Rows 17 through 20: repeat rows 15 and 16 twice.
Row 21: knit
cast off
Weave in ends.  Sew one circle to the bottom of the cylinder and one circle to the top of the cylinder

Crochet a 6" chain (if you cannot crochet, you could braid a 6" braid instead).  Determine the center point at the top of your cozy.  Sew the chain/braid to the lid flap making a loop to allow for the button.  Sew the button to the jar portion of the cozy so that it will hold the loop snugly.

  1. This is really cute! I think it would be so fun on a holiday to make one of these and put it on a mason jar as the "wrapping" and then fill it with goodies for a child. How fun would that be? :)

  2. That is brilliant! I love it! Thanks for sharing the pattern - I can't wait to give it a try. (:

  3. I am still loving the cozies.. I am sure my "tea" mason jar need one.

    Here is my most recent project: http://likemamalikedaughter.blogspot.com/2012/04/how-to-tuesday-bunnys-birthday-dress.html

  4. I love this! Have you seen those lids that make your drink into a sippable cup? Add one of those, and you're good to go:)

  5. They look so cute Natalie! Nice to meet you! Now crochet for the bathroom! See you soon!

  6. What a great pattern - thanks for sharing it.

  7. Do you have a pattern to where I would be able to crochet it? or no? That is completely adorable!

    1. Sorry Kaylee - I do not know how to crochet, sadly. Good luck.
