I’m still working on cleaning up the Loops and Threads Charisma yarn that I purchased a couple of winters back. It’s a beautiful yarn that works up quick and can be used to crochet just about anything you like.

For myself, I enjoy this yarn in earwarmers because it offers up so much stretch. It’s great for me because I have a hard time with earwarmers always wanting to slide down. But with this yarn they stay on quite nicely.

Other ear warmers to try include the criss cross crochet ear warmer pattern or the Charisma crochet ear warmer. And for something super stretchy and adjustable you might want to check out this ear warmer headband.
