Bulky Handspun Crochet Jar Cozy (fits pint sized jar)

Free crochet pattern for a jar cozy


This is going to be my 100th design on my Ravelry page! I feel like I should be celebrating.


This jar cozy was made using a skein of handspun yarn from a local spinner. It's 6 wpi so the pattern will work with bulky-super bulky yarns. Just check the gauge! The same technique will work for finer yarns, increasing stitches. I'll be doing a version in a worsted weight cotton soon.

I had this half finished and was trying to figure out how to cinch the top so it wouldn't just be a sleeve when I spotted my hair elastics. I put one around the top of the jar and it was perfect! So the last round is stitched around that.
