Popcorn and Split Shell Stitch Crochet Ear Warmer or Cowl

Keep your ears nice and cozy with this crochet ear warmer pattern. You have a bit of lace and a bit of textures to make this a nice fit for just about any outfit.

Wear it alone in cooler weather, but in extreme temperatures, it makes for the perfect accessory for under a winter hood.

Popcorn Shell Cowl/Ear Warmer

The instructions are given for an ear warmer that measures a circumference of about 21 inches. To make the circumference smaller simply decrease the beginning chains in multiples of 10. You can use this ear warmer size chart as a guideline for an ear warmer.

You can also make a stylish cowl simply by adjusting your chains and number of rounds.

The yarn used is 1 ball of Paton’s Canadiana, but you can easily substitute other yarns. Red Heart Soft, Vanna’a Choice and other soft yarns that give a good stretch are a few good examples.

You don’t need much yarn, which makes this an ideal stashbuster pattern during the colder months.
