Ear warmer *Pattern*

Ive been doing alot of crocheting latley. Im always experimenting on new things.

The other day I thought I'd make myself something. I dont like hats because they mess up my hair and scarfs are just to restricting to me so I decided to just make me an earwarmer. I added a button to the back of it so I could easily put it on and lift it off without messing up my hair.

I like the way it turned out.


I guessed at making the flower. Later, I decided to add a pearl bead to accent it.



I cant wait for it to get cold enough to wear it. No, wait, I do not want it to get cold but do want to wear this.



Here is the pattern for this ear warmer for those crafters out there wanting to take on another task. If you can't crochet, I will have a couple of these in My Etsy Shop you can purchase.

1.  Chain long enough to fit around your head ( I chained 60 )
2.  SC first 10,  HDC across leaving 10 at the end, SC last 10, chain 1, turn.
3.  Slip stitch 10, HDC across leaving 10, slip stitch in last 10, chain 1 turn
    * REPEAT step 2 and 3 until you have the width you want.

4.  SC around the band making 2 SC in each corner stitch. Finish off.
5   Apply a button and your done.

I actually made a special crochet stitch at one end for a button hole but its not necessary. You can still get a button in there.  You dont even have to add a button. You can just stitch the ends together and make a band. Whatever suits you.

Now add your own bow or flower if you wish.

  4. Oh wow, I miss crocheting, I used to before blogging. My grandmother taught me and I made many blankets. These look like something I could follow.

    1. I learned a single stitch when I was little and didnt pick the needle up until about a year ago. Thanks to youtube and blogs, ive learned alot of new things to make. IF it want to make something,I look up how to do the stitch and go with it. you can do it!

    1. I actually used a H hook. But you can use any size you want to. Just chain stitch until you have a length to go around your head.

    1. I actually used a H hook. But you can use any size you want to. Just chain stitch until you have a length to go around your head. For a button hole: When I did the single stitch around to finish, at one end I sc one or two at the end (depending on how wide you made it) then chained 2, then skipped two stitches and continued to sc around. Hope this helps.
