This pattern is for an 8 ounce jar. Such a cute little guy!
Medium Weight Acrylic yarn. I used Red Heart With Love in Aran
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
SS: Slip Stitch
Cozy bottom. This never fails to make me laugh.
Row 1: In first chain, do 12 DC. SS to first DC. (12)
Row 2: CH 3 (does NOT count as a DC here and throughout pattern), 2 DC in same stitch, and 2 DC in each stitch around. SS to first DC. (24)
Cozy Side. Don't worry if it looks too small. It will stretch, the fit should be tight.
Row 3: CH 1, SC in same stitch. SC in BACK loop all the way around. SS to first SC. This creates your ridge at the bottom. (24)
You will now be creating the upper part of the cozy, using HDC. This part is crocheted around, there is no joining from row to row. I went until I thought it was tall enough. It ended up being about 8 rows, or 192 stitches.
Row 4-10: ch 1, HDC around until round 10 or until your cozy is the height you want it. Sometimes it's handy to keep the jar nearby so you can try it on. SS to next stitch.
Row 11: Easy Border. *Chain 3, Skip next stitch. SS in next Stitch* around.
Ta da!! How cute is this little guy?
And there you have it! You can make it short or tall, put appliques or flowers on it. Sky's the limit! If you find that your cozy is too big or too small, a simple hook size up or down will solve that problem. I have learned to try the cozy on the jar before I'm all the way finished. Just to be safe.
