A Light Weight Crochet Ear Warmer Made with Scarfie Yarn
One of my favorite things about Scarfie yarn is that it is so light and lofty. I especially love using it in crochet patterns like this Candied Ginger Ear Warmer because it creates a light weight piece that still packs all the warmth you need for winter.

A Crochet Ear Warmer with a Matching Scarf
If you have been following my Seven Days of Scarfie pattern event for a little while; you may recognize the Candied Ginger set. Last year I designed the Candied Ginger Infinity Scarf and just a few days ago I released the Candied Ginger Beanie. I love this stitch so much that I had to make a coordinating ear warmer to wear on the days that my hair is up in a messy bun!
