Inspiration & Design
Everywhere I look on social media I am seeing patterns for crochet twisted earwarmers. Since I love wearing them and they are super easy to make, I thought I would crochet a pattern of my own to share with you!
I love earwarmers! They are such a cute and versatile accessory to wear. I love that you can wear them with your hair down or up. The Classic Twisted Crochet Earwarmer is a fast and beginner friendly project that you can whip up for yourself or to give as a gift. They make for awesome stocking stuffers as well.
I also designed this pattern in four different sizes!
I stuck to basic crochet stitches for this pattern. The earwarmer is crocheted in a long rectangle that is made of single and double crochet clusters. The earwarmer is then sewn in a unique, but easy way to create a classic twist to the earwarmer.
I used Lion Brand Basic Stitch Premium for this crochet earwarmer pattern. This is the same yarn I used in my Jubilee Scarf pattern. It is a soft worsted weight yarn that comes in a multitude of colors. It’s a versatile yarn that works great for many different projects. Any comparable worsted weight yarn will work for this pattern.
Lion Brand also makes a Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling yarn as well. I found this yarn to be slightly thicker than the Premium version. I worked up an earwarmer in the Anti-Pilling and found the gauge to be slightly larger by about a quarter of an inch.

- The Ch.1 at the beginning of every row does not count as a stitch.

- This pattern includes four different sizes: Adult, Teen, Child and Toddler. Stitch and row count for each size will be in parenthesis as followed (Adult, Teen, Child, Toddler). So for example, if the pattern reads “Ch (72, 68, 60, 56)” The first number is for the Adult, the second number is for the Teen, the third number is for the Child, and the fourth number is for the Toddler.
Adult: 21″ x 4.5″
Teen: 20″ x 4.5″
Child: 18″ x 4″
Toddler: 17″ x 3″
Gauge is approximately 14 st across x 12 rows = 4″
Lion Brand Basic Stitch Premium or any comparable yarn. You will need approximately 85 yds for the Adult, 80 yds for the Teen, 70 yds for the Child and 60 yds for the Toddler.

Sewing your earwarmer:
Bind off leaving a tail approximately 12″ long.
Thread the long finishing tail through your yarn needle and set it aside. Lay earwarmer flat, then gather the edges and layer them together. See picture 1
Thread the yarn needle across the edges, being sure to grab yarn from all four layers.
Continue to weave the yarn needle up and down across the surface of the edges, being sure to grab yarn from all four layers each time. See picture 2
Slightly tug on tail before weaving it in. Turn earwarmer right side out.
Finished! Be sure to tag me on Instagram and Facebook with all your earwarmer creations! I would love to share them!

Pretty Ear Warmer. And a nifty joining method. Are you going to tell your students the “Names” (s) given to this Stitch Pattern? I’ve seen it called the “Grit” Stitch. Your pattern says to start the 2nd row “in the first stitch”. It took me a second to recall that this stitch was a SC. It would be handy to have this stated throughout the pattern. WHY? Because This stitch can be worked in THREE ways, not counting the versions done in the “seperate” working loops… Front, Back… Also, try substituting a HDC for the SC, then work the DC in the THIRD-LOOP of the HDC. What different Textures! Have fun!
Lovely! This a beautiful pattern.
