Cozy Jelly Jars Crochet Pattern

So lately I'm crocheting cozies for jelly jars- because they look so cute all dressed up. It would also be a nice way to share a spice mix, you could use it with a Cuppow for a small drinking jar.

These patterns are sized for the half pint quilted jelly jars with the regular mouth by Ball Canning.

Both jars use a size G hook and worsted weight yarn- I like Lily Sugar 'n Cream very much for these sorts of projects and you can see how the Batik color way created a spiral effect on the jar in back.
Gauge for both is 2.25 inches for the first 4 rounds

The Blue Jar-

This cozy has a simple front post stitch design that makes a diamond grid in textured stitches around the jar. If you haven't tried front post crochet- it's done by inserting the hook around the post of the stitch instead of in the top of the stitch. Front post means it's done on the front or outside of the piece.

Stitches used:
Single crochet= sc
Double crochet= dc
Front post double crochet= fpdc
Front post triple crochet= fptc
slip stitch= sl st
stitch or stitches= st or sts
Repeat ** means to repeat what is between the asterisks

Base-
Ch 2 or make magic ring
Round 1: sc 7 times in ring or first stitch, sl st to join.
Round 2:  Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch),2 sc in each stitch around, sl st to join (14 sts)
Round 3: Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch), sc in first stitch, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (21 sts)
Round 4: Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch), sc in first st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (28 sts)
Round 5: ch 2 (counts as first stitch), dc in next st, dc in each stitch around. Sl st in 2nd st of starting chain to join.
Round 6: Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch), sc in same st, fpdc in next dc, *sc in next st, fpdc in next dc*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (14 fpdc stitches)
This is where it gets tricksy. You'll be working backwards and forwards to create the Xs.
Round 7: Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch), sc in same stitch, skip next stitch, fptc in next dc, sc in st after skipped stitch, fptc in skipped dc (X formed),*sc in next st, skip next stitch, fptc in next dc, sc in st after skipped stitch, fptc in skipped dc (X formed),* around, sl st to join (7 crossings)
Round 8: Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch) sc in same stitch, fpdc in next st, *sc in next st, fpdc in next st*, repeat ** around (14 fpdc)
Round 9: Ch 1 (does not count as first stitch), sc in same st, fptc in last dc of previous round, skip stitch, sc in next st, skip stitch, fptc in next dc, *sc in next st, skip stitch, fptc in skipped dc, sc in next stitch,  skip stitch, fptc in next dc*, repeat ** around- the last fptc will be going into the first skipped dc. sl st to join.
Round 10: Repeat round 8.
Round 11: Repeat round 7
Round 11: Repeat round 8
Round 12: Repeat round 9
Round 13: Repeat round 8.
