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


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

-Embroidery thread and needle.


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.


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.

Voila! Another cute animal cosy!
