Crochet Fox Mason Jar Cosy

I think it’s official – I’m obsessed with these mason jar/can/bottle cosies. They’re quick and fun to crochet and I just love ’em! I mean just look how cute this Crochet Fox Mason Jar Cosy is:

For this fox cozy I used the same pattern as the bear mason jar cozy, except I’m not sure why – could be the yarn I used or I made looser stitches – but this one turned out slightly bigger so I just did less rounds (20 in total). Pattern is below or you can purchase the PDF version in my shop.

This pattern is for a 500ml mason jar but you can adjust the size by increasing/decreasing the base circle stitches. Pattern is worked in the round in both loops (or v’s) with the exception of Round 7.

Stitches Used:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

tr – triple crochet

inc – increase (2sc in same st)

BLO – back loop only

sl st – slip stitch

Materials:

-Worsted weight yarn. The yarn I used is called Pumpkin by Bernat and scrap yarn in a creamy colour for the tail.

-Crochet hook size 4.00mm

-7mm safety eyes (I purchased mine from 6060 on Etsy)

-Scrap piece of felt in cream or white and black.

-Embroidery thread and needle.

Body

Round 1: start 6 sc in ring.

Round 2: inc in each st (12 sts)

Round 3: [inc, sc] repeat 6 times (18 sts)

Round 4: [inc, sc 2] repeat 6 times (24 sts)

Round 5: [inc, sc 3] repeat 6 times (30 sts)

Round 6: [inc, sc 4] repeat 6 times (36 sts)

Round 7: sc in BLO

Rounds 8-20 (or 22 if you use tight stitches): sc around.

Final round: sc in next 13 sts, in next st (dc, 2 tr, ch 2, 2 tr, dc, ch 2), skip next st, sl st in next 6 sts, in next st (dc, 2 tr, ch 2, 2 tr, dc, ch 2), skip next st, sl st in next st. Fasten off and weave ends.

Tail

Starting with orange yarn, ch 10, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 7 sts, switch to cream yarn and make 4 sc in last ch, switch back to orange yarn and continue on bottom of foundation ch to end. Fasten off and sew to body.

Cut out two almond-shaped pieces of felt. Mark where you want the eyes to be and then cut a tiny slit, big enough for the safety eye to fit. Attach the safety eyes and trim the excess stem if necessary (with this cosy, because there is the layer of felt in between, I didn’t find it necessary to trim the excess safety eye stem). With black felt, cut out the nose and stitch it on.

You’ll notice there’s a bit of a gap in the pointy ears – option to stitch the gap closed with a bit of yarn.

  1. Hello, Is there a plain cozy pattern for a “on the rocks” glass? I do not know how to crochet but will try.

  2. I’m still really new to crocheting, so I still haven’t gotten a handle on all the terms, but could you give me a tip on how to do the ears? I’ve got everything else but I can’t figure them out-haha Thanks so much!!

  3. Hello,

    I tried to make this coozy, but by the time I got to round 18, my work was like a bowl instead of a coozie. Is there a tip to make the crochet piece stay closer together to fit the mason jar? Thanks!

    1. Hi Katrin,
      Hmmm, only thing I can think of is to use a tighter tension. You should have a total of 36 stitches from round 6 to the end. Let me know if this helps.

  4. Do you sell these per chance? I have zero skill with anything remotely crafty, but I have a friend who seriously needs one of these in her life!

  5. Went very quick and I love it, especially the tail! Instead of sewing the white felt on, I used a glue gun, so as not to see the stitching. Thank-you so much for the pattern. Be fun to fill the jars with different things and give them as gifts.
