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.
1 skein Red Heart worsted weight yarn, in Mistletoe or color of your choice (you can get three cozies out of one 5oz skein)
Size H crochet hook
Quart-sized mason jar (lid optional)
sc = single crochet
ss = slip stitch
rsc = reverse single crochet*
*Reverse single crochet: Working left-to-right (or right-to-left if left-handed), Chain 1 then single crochet into the last stitch of the previous row and in each stitch around.
Pattern is worked continuously in a spiral; do not join or turn at the end of rows.
To help keep track of your stitches, place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.
