Quart-sized Mason Jar Cozy

I made a bunch of these as gifts this past Christmas, and filled the jars with candy.  You can make these in any color to match your decor, or for the different holidays.  This pattern is for a quart-sized mason jar, but it can easily be adapted to other sizes.  Just increase the bottom circle to the desired size.
