Angelina Ear Warmer, Chunky Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern






Looking for a quick one skein project?  This Earwarmer can be worked up in an hour and with just one skein. Chunky and Stylish, a much-needed accessory for the Fall season. It will give you warmth while not messing up your hair too much. I used this lovely red color from Hometown USA and it came out gorgeous. A simple to work textured stitch is used for the Earwarmer and you will be done in no time. a great item for gifting or for craft fairs. 


Materials
1. Yarn: Super Bulky, size 6 yarn. I used Hometown USA from Lion Brand. The
UK/Australian equivalent is 14 ply.
2. Hook: Hook K (6.5 mm) and a hook H (5mm) to weave in the tails.
3. Sewing Needle
4. Three large wooden buttons. I used one-inch ones.
Size
Finished measurements: 21 inches in circumference and 4 ½ inches wide after it is buttoned up.

Gauge
6 hdc st = 3 inches

I used about 100 yards of yarn. I could work it up in just one skein of Lion Brand Hometown USA with a few yards left.

Stitch Abbreviations
The pattern is in standard American terms.
Hdc- half double crochet

  1. I am only coming up with 16 inches, not 21 - do I need to change my hook size? I am using Hometown USA and a K hook.

    1. Did you check your gauge? Yes, switch to a bigger hook.

    2. Some people crochet tighter or loser then others. You always should do a swatch to check your gauge. Increasing hook size will make your gauge bigger.
