A small mason-jar cozy with a pocket for a wee fairy companion…

I’ve sized these cozies for an 8 oz. (240 ml) jar -- just right for warming small hands around wintertime cups of cocoa. And these cozies are quick to knit up, so you might think of making a few as you work your way though your holiday gift list…

For this project you will need a few yards worsted wt. wool: I made three cozies: one from Noro Kureyon, another from Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and a third from Knit Picks Chroma worsted. You will also need a stitch marker (optional), a tapestry needle and a tiny, 3 cm “baby/bee” size peg doll (please check the CRAFT SUPPLY RESOURCES page on my blog for places where you can order blank wooden peg dolls by mail).

US 5 (3.75 mm) dpn needles
US 7 (4.5 mm) dpn needles
(or whatever needle size you require for gauge)

5 st/ 8 rows per inch. Please use which ever needle size will achieve the gauge. As you are knitting, the cozy might seem too small; please trust me that it will stretch to fit your jar. It should fit snugly.

NOTE: This project could easily be enlarged to accommodate larger sized mason jars.
