FREE Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern.
Crochet this ear warmer pattern to any size you want from a child to adult. Plus, it has a lovely stretch for a nice comfy fit.
The pattern is worked in back loops only throughout, which gives you a nice ribbed texture on the right side. It has a little bit of lace, but it’s still nice and cozy for the cold weather.
And although I used Caron Simply Soft, which results in a super soft and stretchy fabric, feel free to use any other yarn and hook size.

The first crossed stitch is worked over the first and last sts made in the previous round. This way the beginning ch-2 is hidden for a seamless look. It also staggers the crossed stitches for a super cool design.
All rounds are crocheted into the back loops only. All rounds are joined in both loops.
Increase/Decrease the size as needed in any multiple of two.
Refer to the following tutorial if you need help with the crossed stitch. Cross Stitch Tutorial
