Crochet the Heart Stitch Ear Warmer in Multiple Sizes
If you haven't crocheted the heart puff stitch before (like in my Heart Stitch Hat) - this is the perfect project to try it out! This super textured ear warmer is a fast and easy project. It's also easily adjustable in size (see pattern notes below) so go ahead and make it for the kids and adults in your life!
Crochet the Heart Stitch with Alternating Rows of Texture
This ear warmer may look complicated due to all the texture, but it's not! The Heart Stitch Ear Warmer uses just a few different types of stitches in alternating rounds. If you find you need help with the puff stitch - I've got a video tutorial below to teach you how to crochet it.
Crochet Heart Stitch for Valentine's Day
I designed this pattern as a Valentine’s themed ear warmer. It's my subtle nod to the holiday instead of going for a more obvious heart pattern. I say subtle, because this ear warmer can really be worn all fall and winter long with that amazing texture of the puff stitches!
