- using one skein of yarn or scraps (or 100yards per color)
- offering free patterns
- oh, and earn brownie points if you can make it in less than a week!

Choosing the right yarn for your Jar Cozy
Let’s talk about acrylic vs. cotton yarn for crochet jar cozies. Both yarns have their own unique pros and cons, so the best choice for you will depend on your specific needs and preferences.
Acrylic yarn is a synthetic fiber that is durable, easy to care for and comes in a wide variety of colors. It’s also relatively inexpensive, Acrylic yarn is also water-resistant, which is a plus for jar cozies that will be used with cold drinks. However, acrylic yarn can be a bit stiff and scratchy, and it doesn’t breathe as well as cotton yarn.
Cotton yarn is a natural fiber that is soft, absorbent, and breathable. It’s also hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for people with sensitive skin. Cotton yarn is also machine-washable and dryable, which makes it easy to care for. However, cotton yarn can be more expensive than acrylic yarn, and it’s not as water-resistant. Cotton yarn can also stretch out over time,
So, which type of yarn is best for crochet jar cozies? It really depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a durable, easy-care jar cozy that comes in a wide variety of colors, acrylic yarn is a good choice. If you want a soft, absorbent, and breathable jar cozy, cotton yarn is a good choice.

Let’s get to the Pattern, shall we?
- Drops Paris 100% cotton, color # 71, 1 skein, and a different color for the chains a few grams
- Hook:G-6 / 5 mm
- Yarn Needle, Scissors, Measuring Tape
- One size – measure depends on the jar of your choice This sample is 15.5” circumference X 5” height
- To make this jar cozy smaller, work only 4 increased rounds
- Ch = Chain
- Sc = Single Crochet
- Tr = Treble Crochet
- SlSt = Slip Stitch
- Inc = Increase round
- This pattern is worked in rounds.
- Ch2 does not count as 1st st
- Ch 1 at the beginning of the round does not count as a stitch
- Ch 4 at the beginning of the round does count as a stitch
Chain 4, slst to 1st ch to form a round, or use the magic circle
Round 1:(Inc) Ch 2, dc 8 inside the circle, slst to top of ch 2.
Round 2:(Inc) Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc from the previous round (16 dc total), slst to top of ch 2
Round 3:(Inc) Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc from hook, 1 dc in next dc, repeat from * around (24 dc total), slst to top of ch 2
Round 4:(Inc) Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc from hook, 1 dc in next 2 dc, repeat from * around (32 dc total), slst to top of ch 2
Round 5:(Inc) Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc from hook, 1 dc in next 3 dc, repeat from * around (40 dc total), slst to top of ch 2
Now you should have a total of 40 stitches- we stop increasing and work 40 stitches around to the end of the pattern height.
