Crochet this pretty ear warmer for yourself or for your children. It’s given in one size, however it can be adjusted to any size in multiples of two.
The ear warmer features a pretty lace along with a beaded texture to please just about everyone. So you can’t go wrong. Due to the lace, this might not be suitable for the extreme cold. However, if you have long hair, you might just get away with it.
