Mason Jar Cozies Pattern





I live in the Hipster Capital of the world. Yogis, artists, polyamorous raw vegans and crystal healers abound. Tattoos proudly displayed on arms, necks and faces(!), hair dyed the becoming shade of highlighter green (you'd think it might glow in the dark), pierced lips wrapped around metal straws sucking on a gluten free, cruelty free, kale-quinoa-avocado-ativan-coconut-water-Pabst-energy-balancing smoothie.......hipsters are unusual creatures.


One of the token items you'll see on a hipster in their native habitat is the mason jar. Convenient, versatile, and best of all, reusable! With so many products being sold in single-use containers, the mason jar helps to cut down on the amount of waste we produce.


As such, I have written up another pattern to help my beloved hipsters through the Winter months - a Mason Jar Cozy! Whether you use your jar for meals, drinks or purchasing groceries, a cozy can help to keep your things warm, or simply spruce up your household items with some colour (and perhaps help to better allocate your things!)


N.B: Writing my patterns can be quite time consuming and I do my best to make sure they are clear, coherent and easy to follow. Since I provide them for free, I would appreciate it if you could please follow me on Instagram @slipstitch_hollow or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/slipstitchhollow. Or, you can sign up to my mailing list! By following me through these platforms, you will receive all updates about new patterns, items for sale, art installations and my undying gratitude! :)


You will need:


  • A Mason Jar (for this pattern, I will provide dimensions for 8oz, 12oz, Quart)

  • 4mm crochet hook

  • Worsted weight yarn (4) in the colour of your choice)

  • Buttons (optional for the jars, but if you have one with a handle then a button is HIGHLY recommended)

  • Needle to sew on the buttons


NOTE: This pattern will be done in continuous rounds. I.E, we won’t be joining at the end of each round, rather, we will be moving onto the next one by continuing to crochet into the first stitch of the previous round.


Let's get crocheting!

From here, we will be crocheting back and forth to create the gap for the handle. YOU WILL NEED A STITCH MARKER TO BEGIN AS WE WILL NO LONGER BE CROCHETING IN ROUNDS.


Chain 1, TURN YOUR WORK, (Place stitch marker here) and sc in the same stitch and continue going around the cozy, and stop two or more stitches before you reach the stitch marker. This is where we will start the space for the handle. You will need your jar/mug with you to check when you need to stop. Place your cozy on the jar/mug to make sure the space is wide enough for the handle. For my jar, the space was only two stitches wide. It may be different for yours, so be sure to check before you continue. Once you have reached that point and are happy with it, chain 1, TURN YOUR WORK, and sc in each stitch in the other direction, all the way to the end of the row.


From here we will be going back and forth - chain 1, turn your work, sc in the same stitch and each stitch to the end of the row, chain 1, turn your work, sc in the same stitch and each stitch back in the OTHER direction to the end of the row, chain 1, turn, and so on and so forth...


Continue working up and keep checking with your jar until you have reached a suitable height. Once you are happy with it, we can make the loop for the button.


When you have reached the end of the row, simply chain a length that will fit around your button (I made a chain of 12), then slipstitch the chain back into the last single crochet at the end of the row. Fasten off, weave in ends. Then on the other side, sew your button on using your yarn needle.



And that's it! You're done! Now you can show off your cozies to the world and become the envy of hipsters everywhere!


I hope you liked these patterns! :) If you have any critiques or questions, please leave me a message below or send me an email! All (constructive) feedback is welcome and I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.
