Crochet Pattern - Jar cosy

Crochet Pattern - Jar cosy

I've been seeing lot's of lovely crochet jar cosies used for tea lights recently, I think it must be something about the winter months that just makes me want to make everything look warm and cosy, so I decided to have a go at some. 

I've also found they are brilliant for practising new stitch patterns...

... I first tried these back in February and used a pattern by Nature Nut Notes (no longer available), and I recently came across this lovely granny jar cover pattern by Meanyjar, but I was greedy and wanted to try more!

I played around with a couple of different stitch patterns I'd wanted to try out and the one I was most taken with was the arcade stitch. I really enjoyed this stitch, so I thought I'd have a go at making a jar cosy using it.

I loved the way they turned out so I've attempted to write out the pattern below :)

This is the first cosy I made, I used crab stitch to finish off the top.


I then got filled with Christmas spirit and thought these would be a great way to decorate bottled gifts, I used the Jolly Holly pattern from Lucy at Attic24.


And these are the cosies I have created a pattern for - I hope you like them as much as I do - but if not I've added a picture of them looking all warm and glowy to try and win you over ;)

Hook: 3.5mm (you can shop my favourite tools here)

Yarn: Cotton - I used Patons 100% Mercerised Cotton, I think these look better using a mercerised cotton as the stitches appear more defined, but if not I would recommend a finer yarn weight for example 3ply or sock/sport weight.
