The Even Berry Stitch Ear Warmer is a quick and easy project that would make for a great stocking stuffer or gift idea. These can be crocheted in any worsted weight yarn.
I know not everyone is a beanie/hat kind of person. Personally, I love when the winter comes around and 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 Berry Stitch Ear Warmer to my sister for Christmas.
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 Berry Stitch Ear Warmer. The construction is very simple. Just crochet a rectangle, slip stitch the short sides together, and your finished! It’s that easy.
I really hope you enjoy the pattern!
