If you’ve got a little time and a little leftover yarn, you can create this magical pint-size mason jar cozy with my free knitting pattern. I call it magical because the stitch, called St. John’s Wort, is made with diagonal lines, but when you stretch it over a jar, it becomes a rounded, lacy pattern. Read on for the quick and easy free knitting pattern or click here to shop for pre-made cozies from WormeWoole.

Make your own jar cozy or order one from WormeWoole here.



This cozy is the perfect accent for a boho or shabby wedding centerpiece, or makes a great cottage decor vase or pen holder for your home office. And with Mother’s Day around the corner, it would be a sweet gift, whether you make it yourself or not. Fill the jar with flowers, candy, a gift card, or whatever she likes and present it to your mom or special auntie.

The lacy pattern allows the jar color or candlelight to show through.



The open work pattern lets the jar show through, so if you have an antique or reproduction blue jar or a painted mason jar, you can enjoy the color of the jar itself as well. Or, if you are using the jar as a tea light holder, the gorgeous candlelight will shine out.






{The Mason Jar Cozy Free Knitting Pattern}


  • 25g or less of sport weight yarn
  • set of 5 size US6 (4 mm) double pointed needles
  • large eyed needle to weave in ends


CO 48 stitches and divide evenly over 4 needles (12 per needle)

Join round, being careful not to twist. Make K2P2 ribbing for 5 rounds.

Begin St. John’s Wort in the Round:

  • Round 1: Sl 1, K2, PSSO, K3 (repeat sequence until end of round)
  • Round 2: KI, YO, K4 (repeat sequence until end of round)
  • Round 3: K3, Sl 1, K2, PSSO (repeat sequence until end of round)
  • Round 4: K4, YO, K1 (repeat sequence until end of round)

Work pattern rounds 1-4 a total of 9 times (36 rounds, after 5 rounds of K2P2 ribbing)

Knit all stitches for two times around.

Knit 2 together all the way around until only 6 stitches remain.

Cut yarn, leaving a tail, thread yarn through remaining stitches (removing them from needle) and pull tight. Knot and weave in ends.
