I’m on a mission to make my daughters cute earwarmers to keep them warm this winter. They love earwarmers because they can use it outdoors to keep them warm and they’re cute enough to keep on even indoors.
The basic band is really easy and fast to whip up and you can change the look with different accents. This time I used a two color flower and stitched a coordinating button in the center.
For this flower I used the free Frothy Flower pattern from Very Berry Handmade. I just used 2 colors and added the button.
Earwarmers make great stocking stuffers and are a great way to use that leftover yarn.

Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 20” in length (you can adjust this for a custom fit, measure head circumference and SUBRACT 2” to the crochet piece)

Fasten off and weave in ends.
For this flower I used the free Frothy Flower pattern from Very Berry Handmade. I started the flower in pink and made the first round of petals in pink as well. I changed color for the second row of petals, and switched back to the pink for the final row of petals.
I stitched a coordinating button at the center of the flower before attaching it to the band.
