This cute bear will protect your hands from cold or hot beverages!
Mason jars are great drink containers but sometimes those drinks can be too hot (or cold). A crochet mason jar cosy will not only make you smile while you enjoy your tea or hot cocoa but it will also prevent you from burning your hands.

  • Step 1

    This pattern is for a 500ml mason jar but you can adjust the size by increasing/decreasing the base circle stitches. Pattern is worked in the round in both loops (or v’s) with the exception of Round 7.

    Stitches Used:

    ch – chain

    sc – single crochet

    dc – double crochet

    inc – increase (2sc in same st)

    BLO – back loop only

    sl st – slip stitch

    Materials:

    -Worsted weight yarn in colour of choice

    -Crochet hook size 4.00mm

    -7mm safety eyes (I purchased mine from 6060 on Etsy)

    -Scrap piece of felt in colour of choice.

    -Embroidery thread and needle.

    Round 1: start 6 sc in ring.

    Round 2: inc in each st (12 sts)

    Round 3: [inc, sc] repeat 6 times (18 sts)

    Round 4: [inc, sc 2] repeat 6 times (24 sts)

    Stitching in the back loop will create the edge/walls of the cosy.

    Rounds 8-22: sc in each st, both loops.

    Round 23: sc 13, in next st (sc, 3 dc, sc), sl st in next 7 sts, in next st (sc, 3 dc, sc), leave remaining sts as is. Fasten off and weave ends.

    For the mouth and nose I cut a small square piece of felt and embroidered it before cutting it into a round shape.

    Luckily I had thread that matched the felt colour and using a safety pin to hold the felt in place I stitched it on to the cosy.
