The Easy Crochet Ear Warmer is quick to make, great for beginners, and can be worked in 5 different sizes!

Using a bulky weight yarn will help to stitch a project in no time; that’s exactly why I used it to create this easy ear warmer!

This small headband accessory can be worked in various yarn weights, types, colors, and fibers, especially when you measure as you go for the best size and fit.

Beginners will enjoy this quick-to-stitch project because it uses just two basic crochet stitches: chain, half double.

No matter how long you’ve been crocheting, this fabric is simple and fun to created because the stitches are actually worked into the back loops and the third loops.

These variations in stitch placement are easy to work, and you’ll have a gorgeous texture on one side of your finished fabric.

Ear warmers are fantastic accessories for cooler weather, and you’ll be able to easily make one for everyone in your life because the Easy Crochet Ear Warmer is written in 5 different sizes.

And, because this is worked in rows, you can adjust the size of your ear warmer as you go until you have the perfect fit.

This is a great pattern because:

  • Accessories are quick and easy projects to work up, especially with super bulky yarn!
  • Just one skein makes any size!
  • This project is perfect for gifts!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: Rows, stitch tension, gauge & size, specialty stitches (like the 3rd loop and Back Loop Only), finishing techniques & more!
