I know not everyone is a beanie/hat kind of person. Personally, I love when the Winter comes around so I can wear all my winter beanies. My twin sister on the other hand, never wears a beanie. I’m not sure why she doesn’t wear them but it is one thing we do not have in common. I feel that an ear warmer is a good compromise to not wearing a beanie. I plan on giving this ear warmer to my sister for Christmas. Hopefully she will wear it.
This ear warmer is crocheted using the Even Berry Stitch. This stitch creates such a fun an interesting texture. It looks like a mini puff stitch when completed. It took me roughly and hour to crochet this ear warmer. It is a quick and easy project that would make a perfect stocking stuffer! I hope you enjoy this cute pattern!
