Liz makes a mason jar cozy

Tyler and I recently redid our bathroom -- new shower curtain, rugs, towels, organizational basket, etc. I decided to crochet a cozy for a couple of mason jars using some matching yarn. One mason jar is used for our toothbrushes and the other holds a battery-powered tealight. There are a lot of ways you can customize to make this your own too: you can use different kinds of yarn, make vertical OR horizontal stripes, single, double or triple crochet, etc. 

So when you're ready to make one yourself, grab some yarn, a mason jar and a crochet hook.
Crochet a chain that's equal to the circumference of the mason jar.
Double crochet the length of the chain, chain once and then turn. Continue doing that until...
...the crocheted rectangle is as tall as the mason jar.
Fold the rectangle in half and single crochet the ends together.
This is what it should look like. 
Turn it inside out and slide the cozy on your mason jar. Perfecto!
Now you can do whatever with it. Here's what it looks like when there's an electric tealight inside of it:
I hope you all had a great Christmas! I sure did. :)

    1. It might be one of the easiest things to learn, if you were willing of course. :)
