I decided to make a mason jar cozy with a lot of scrap yarn lying around after I ordered some EcoJarz lids. They're these adorable lids you can pop on your mason jars so you can bring them on the go. They have a coffee-lid type spout. The ones I bought from Amazon also come with stainless steel straws, and I am excitedly awaiting them.

I figured a cozy could protect my hands from hot drinks and prevent a slippery, condensation-y glass. It worked out pretty well, I think!

My basic pattern used a size H hook, worsted weight yarn, and single crochet, as well as a magic loop, single crochet decrease and increase.

The sea foam yarn was Red Heart Soft in, I believe, sea foam, while the raspberry and pumpkin yarn are part of a vintage stash I received as a gift. The raspberry is actually a really pretty color, and I love the color combo.

I'm hoping the cozy will help with breakage, but I'm not sure. Has anyone had an incident dropping a mason jar, with or without a sleeve? I imagine that would be bad and always wonder how people bring around their jars so freely. I'd be worried about shattering it.

Try using cotton yarn if you make another cozy.  I used to make water bottle holders out of acrylic yarn, but I found it does not wick away the moisture from the bottle as good as the cotton yarn, and then sometimes, the bottle becomes slippery.  I love the colors you used, though.
