Crochet the Frosted Petals Ear Warmer with Lion Brand Scarfie Yarn
The crochet Frosted Petals Ear Warmer is a lacy yet warm ear warmer when made with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. The solid stitching over the ears keeps your ears warm while the open arcade stitch gives the ear warmer a lighter look. This pattern is part of my fifth Seven Days of Scarfie crochet pattern collection.
