I don’t know how to crochet. Well, that’s not entirely true. I can do something that resembles crochet, but I never knew what the names of the stitches were, just a few variations on the same thing and I could go back and forth in a line. I saw this free pattern for a Jar Cozy on The Handmade Girl and thought I’d give it a try. It’s my first time following a pattern and I had to watch a few youtube videos to learn basically everything in the pattern, but it was super simple and I love the result! Now I can enjoy hot drinks in my jars!
Technically this is inside out (I think). When I finished it I liked the pattern on the inside better than the outside, at least when it was stretched over the jar.
Now I have an even better use for my Cuppow lid (above). These are fantastic. They take any mason jar and turn it into a travel mug. These lids have also come in handy for feeding Will smoothies. The hole in the top is the perfect size for a straw and this fits on any regular mouth canning jar. They also make a wide mouth version if you prefer!
