Pattern: Cozy Ear Warmer

A good ear warmer is my go-to winter accessory and the perfect way to style up any seasonal outfit. Quick to hook and easy to wear you’ll be making them in every colour!


Aran weight yarn (I used WI yarn in mustard tweed from Hobbycraft)

4.5mm hook

Tapestry needle



Ch – chain

Chsp- chain space

DC – double crochet (UK)

SS – slip stitch.

NB: This pattern is suitable for beginner crocheters and uses simple stitches.

Ch at beginning of row does not count as stitch.

  1. Ch16, dc in second ch from hook, *ch1, skip next stitch, dc. Repeat across with dc in last stitch. Ch1, turn.
  2. DC, *DC in chsp from previous row (this row will start with DC in first two stitches) ch1, skip next stitch. Repeat across. DC in last stitch (this row will end with DC in last two stitches) Ch1, turn.
  3. DC, *ch1, skip next stitch, DC in chsp from previous row. Repeat across with DC in last stitch. Ch1, turn.

Repeat rows 2 – 3 until work measures 20 inches.

To finish:

  1. Join ends together using SS.
  2. Leaving a long tail, around 60cm long, fasten off.
  3. With wrong side facing thread the needle and insert through stitches on either side of the join. Pull hard on the yarn to “rouch” the fabric and create a narrow front section.
  4. Knot and then, with right side facing, wind the remaining yarn over the join to form a turban effect.
  5. Once you’ve used all the yarn secure at the back of the ear warmer, fasten off and weave in ends.

Tip: if you’d like to make this ear warmer in another size I’ve found Bhooked’s hat sizing tool to be really helpful for sizing up and down.

  1. […] My pal Emily asked me to whip her up an ear warmer now that winter is starting to bite! I’ve always used my own pattern and thought it was about time I wrote it down and you can get it on my blog HERE! […]
