The Beginner-Friendly Crochet Ear Warmer
While working on my “How to Crochet” series, I wanted to provide several beginner-friendly patterns to help new crocheters practice. Plus, I wanted to show beginners how many items they could make with just crocheted squares and rectangles.
This Ear Warmer is a perfect example of a pattern that looks harder than it is. We will make a fast ear warmer with a simple rectangle and a little sewing.

– I do not count my CH2, turning chain as a stitch.
CH 41 for Baby Size
CH 47 for Child Size
CH 59 for Adult Size
Row 1: DC in the 3rd CH from the Hook. DC in each CH across. (Stitch count will be 2 less than your starting chain.)
Row 2 – 6: CH2, turn, DC in each ST across.
At the end of Row 6, fasten off leaving a 20-inch yarn end. Fold your rectangle in half and use your yarn end to whip stitch the two short ends together. Tie a knot but do not fasten off. (You can fasten off now if you do not wish to gather the center of your headband.)
Where your seam is, pinch the headband and use the yarn end to wrap around the ear warmers several times. Wrap around it until you are almost out of yarn. Weave the yarn tail through a stitch and tie a knot. Weave in your ends.
Your crochet ear warmer is complete. Theses work up so quickly, you can make 2-3 to give as a gift.
