Crochet Ear Warmer Patterns are SO Useful
Welcome to another pattern in our Seven ONEderful Skeins pattern collection. I love including ear warmers in these pattern collections for a few reasons.
- They are a super quick project and easy to complete in less than a day
- You can usually crochet 2-3 ear warmers with just one skein of yarn
- They make great teacher/co-worker gifts because they are fast and inexpensive to make
Seven ONEderful Skeins
Welcome to Seven ONEderful Skeins - the spin off from my popular Seven Days of Scarfie pattern event. This year all of our patterns will be made with one skein of simple worsted weight acrylic, BUT I also made them with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. You get to decide what yarn you're going to use. But one way or the other - we are going to make 7 projects in 7 days with 7 skeins (or less) of yarn!
I hope that you love each of these pattern collections as much as I do!

Warm up by Crocheting the Bobble Stitch
The Butternut Ear Warmer packs on a little bit of insulation for cold weather. That's because the bobble stitch is a pretty dense and warm stitch. Sure, it takes a bit of extra yarn that typical stitches. But the payoff is a nice warm piece for winter. I don't know about you, but where I live that is necessary!
