Very Easy Mason Jar Cozy Pattern

Here’s how it works.

I designed this Mason Jar Cover Pattern to use to cover an old canning jar I had at home. I needed somewhere to put my Tunisian Crochet Hooks but you can use them for so many purposes! These crochet cozies makes great, versatile gifts.

Disclosure: The yarn I used for this project was given to me by Yarnspirations.

You can crochet these quick crochet projects in different colors of yarn to distinguish between drinks this summer. Everyone will know which drink is theirs – plus they work great as portable coasters.

They are also a great way to pack your mason jars in your lunch bags – especially if you use more than one in your cooler at once. The crocheted stitches protect the glass jars from cracking up against each other.

I have one mason jar that I use a different cover on for use as a small vase to put cut flowers into for our table. It’s a fun way to change up your home decor and so simple too!

You can even pop a battery operated candle inside to create a little mood light. Or use them to store candy or tea! They are such a fun way to decorate.

When my husband was taking his smaller mason jars to work for his meal replacement drinks during a cleanse he was trying a couple years ago, I made small versions for him to place on his glass bottles so they wouldn’t bang up against each other in his lunch bag. We were worried about them cracking accidentally but these worked great as covers!

I hope you enjoy this free pattern (in 3 sizes!) which I’ve included in my blog post below.
