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.

Thanks for reading! C & c welcome!  Grin

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.
