This beautiful crochet Mason Jar cozy free pattern is an easy crochet pattern perfect for a quick project which can be completed in a lazy afternoon!
Let’s talk a bit about the Mason Jar. I know that Mason Jars have become increasingly popular to use for just about anything you can think of besides canning and I, for one, have completely jumped on that bandwagon.
We use them as vases, for storing food in the fridge or freezer or dry goods storage. We even purchased this awesome set and used jelly jars as baby bottles.
My favorite use of the Mason Jar, especially the 32 oz jars, is to use them as drinking glasses. There’s just one problem: In the summer, I like cold drinks and like any glass vessel, they sweat in the heat. Coasters, like the Crochet Country Coasters are perfect if I am sitting down in one spot all day long, but come on, I have 3 little kids!
An entire cozy seemed necessary so I can take my drink around the house with me and set it down without worrying about water dripping on whatever surface. I used 100% cotton yarn, so any condensation that does form is absorbed by the cozy. Making useful and practical things really makes me happy!

I wrote an entire post about my favorite hooks. Check out the Clover Amour Crochet Hook Review if you have ever been curious whether crochet hooks really make much of a difference.
sc(s): single crochet(s)
dc(s): double crochet(s)
sl st: slip stitch
The diameter of the starting circle (rounds 1-3) should measure approx 3.25″.
Notes/ Stitch Instructions:
When working the rounds with the spider stitch (sc, ch 1, sc) it is incredibly helpful to use a stitch marker in the first sc of each row. Review How to Crochet the Spider Stitch.
To change colors:
Locate the first sc of the round
Insert hook into the first sc of the round and pull through the new color completing a slip stitch.
sc into the first ch-1 sp
