A Crochet Knotted Ear Warmer Made with Yarn Scraps
With the seemingly impossible twist in the front - this knotted appearance is really made from just a simple crochet rectangle. The Snow Drops Knotted Ear Warmer pattern adds another option to my most popular collection of free crochet patterns.
Make this Crochet Ear Warmer with Leftover Yarn
Crochet this knotted ear warmer with just 70 yards of worsted weight yarn. I used Caron Cakes yarn which is why it has the color block appearance. To achieve this same effect you could use two or three different scraps of leftover yarn from your stash. This ear warmer is truly quick and inexpensive to make!

Creating the Twist
Fold your rectangle right side in so that the two long sides meet (the short sides will be folded in half).
Hold the two folded short sides (photo 1). Place each folded short end together so that where they join alternates between sides (see Photo 2)
Using the tail of yarn from the last row and a yarn needle, sew back and forth between all 4 layers of the short edge until they are completely seemed together (photo 3).
Flip the ear warmer right side out, and you will see the twist! Tie off yarn and weave in ends.
