‘The Heart of Christmas’ – Trees (Medium)

This is the medium sized cozy – one of the 3 sizes of ‘The Heart of Christmas’ pattern. It is made up of a line of Christmas trees!! The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Christmas is trees. I chose trees as the pattern for this cozy because my little boy loves to decorate his tree on Christmas ūüôā

What you will need 

  1. Yarn: Worsted weight yarn in 2 colors.
    • I used Lily Sugar ‚Äôn Cream Yarn – The yardage mentioned below is for all three cozies combined.
      1. Red: 3 oz / 90 g / 135 m / 150 yards (2 skeins)
      2. White: 2 oz / 60 g / 90 m / 100 yards (1 skein)
  2. Hook: 5 mm (H) crochet hook 
  3. Scissors
  4. Stitch markers (optional)
  5. Tapestry needle to weave in tails

Experience level

Intermediate

Dimensions

The medium size fits a 16 oz Ball jar with dimensions:
Diameter – 3‚ÄĚ / 7.5 cms
Height – 4‚ÄĚ / 10 cms

Gauge

10 rows of 10 Single Crochet stitches is a 2.5 inch (6.5 cms) square.

Note: I make my Waistcoat Stitches very loose as compared to Single Crochet stitches. The given gauge will hold true for the base of the cozies only. The gauge for the rest of the pattern is different and if you have the base diameter close to mine, the Waistcoat Section should work out fine. You can switch to a larger hook for the Waistcoat Stitch section if that is more comfortable for you.
