Snowman Jar Cozy with Hat

Snowman Jar Cozy

 

Since fall is just around the corner my thoughts for new crochet projects naturally turned to the holidays and what I had made up in the past. This little snowman jar cozy was one of my favorite quick projects. I filled them with Christmas candy and gave them to my family members and friends last year. They seemed to really like them. This shows up on pinterest often but I changed it up a little and made a lid for it that looks like a snowman’s black hat. It’s very easy to make, and as I said works up quickly, so you might want to consider it for your holidays. They don’t have to be filled with candy of course, but hey, that could be a lot of the reason everyone liked them!

The jar cozy was from a basic pattern I found online. I changed it only slightly. The basic pattern is at:
http://whiskersandwool.blogspot.com/2012/12/snowman-jar-cozy-crochet-version.html

Materials:
I used an H hook
Small amount of white worsted weight
Small amount of black worsted weight
Small amounts of red and black felt
Glue
The jar I used was one I picked up at Dollar Tree and was about 5 ½ inches
high with a ruffled top and about 15 inches around.

Pattern:

Ch 23.
Row 1: Turn and sc in 2nd chain from hook. Sc in each stitch across. (22 stitches) , Ch 1 Turn
Row 2: Sc in back loop across on each row, ch 1 and turn for a total 41 to 46 rows. (Check to see if stretches to fit around jar)
After last row join to starting row with single crochets. Tie off at bottom and weave in ends.

The eyes, nose and mouth I made by cutting circles out of left over fleece and gluing in place.

Hat:

To make the hat I just used a basic hat
type design. I made it so the top circle was just a smidgen bigger around than the opening so it would
slip over the top. I’m not a pattern writer so hope these directions make sense:
Ch 4, join with slip st to form circle
Row 1: Ch 3, dc 11 stitches in circle, join with sl in top of ch (12 stitches)
Row 2: Ch 2, dc in same st as ch, 2, dc in each stitch around, join with sl to top of ch 2 (24 stitches)
Row 3: Ch 2, *dc in next stitch, 2 dc in nest* repeat from * around, join with sl to top of ch 2 (36 stitches)
Row 4: Ch 2, *dc in next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next* repeat from * around, join with sl to top of ch 2 (48 stitches)
Row 5: Ch 1, sc in back loop of each stitch around, join with sl to top of ch 2 (48 stitches)
Row 6: Ch 2, dc around (48 stitches)
Repeat above row until hat is as tall as you want. I did 4 additional rows. Finish off.
Fold up last row of dcs to form a small brim.
Ch 15, leaving a long tail at beginning and end. I threaded the tail through the
top of the hat and tied on the inside to make a loop to lift the lid.

Should you have any problems with the pattern or any questions please let me know. Enjoy.
