Basket Weave Ear Warmer – Free Crochet Pattern

I enjoyed working with Lion Brand Yarn’s Mandala yarn so much I decided to create an ear warmer to match the Basket Weave Scarf! The really neat thing is, you can make the scarf and ear warmer with just ONE cake of Mandala yarn!! This would make a great winter gift set!

Measurements:

This size should fit most teen/adult women (I found Chaining 66-68 was best for this size)

8 1/2 Inches Long

2 1/2 Inches Wide

To adjust the size of this ear warmer, add chains in multiples of 2 to make it larger or decrease by chains in multiples of 2 to make it smaller!

Supplies:

Lion Brand Yarn Mandala (I used the color way “Spirit”)

Hook Size: US-I9(5.50mm)

Yarn Weight: 3

Darning Needle

 

Terms/Stitches Used:

Ch – Chain

SC – Single Crochet

DC – Double Crochet

HDC – Half Double Crochet

FPDC – Front Post Double Crochet

BPDC – Back Post Double Crochet



Foundation Chain:

Note: Leave a long tail when you create your slip knot, this will be used at the very end to cinch the ear warmer in the very middle!

To adjust the size of this ear warmer, add chains in multiples of 2 to make it larger or decrease by chains in multiples of 2 to make it smaller!

Ch 66 + 2

Row 1: DC in the 3rd st from the hook, DC in the remaining stitches until you reach the end (66st)

Row 2: Ch 2, turn, FPDC in the same stitch, FPDC in the next 3 stitches. *BPDC in the next 4 stitches, FPDC in the next 4 stitches*  Continue alternating 4 FPDC and 4 BPDC until you reach the end of the row

Row 3:  Ch 2, turn, FPDC in the same stitch, FPDC in next 3 stitches, *BPDC in the next 4 stitches, FPDC in next 4 stitches* Continue alternating until end of the row (stitch should be the same as the previous row, creating a square)

 

Row 4+5: Ch 2, turn, *BPDC in first 4 stitches, FPDC in next 4 stitches* Continue alternating 4 BPDC and 4 FPDC until end of row

Row 6+7: Repeat Row 3 (Begin with FPDC)

Once you reach the desired thickness of the ear warmer you must SC the ends together. Fold the ear warmer so the ends meet and SC across. Be sure to leave a long tail to help cinch the middle of the ear warmer at the very end!

Here, you will need your darning needle. Wrap the tails of yarn around the seam. Slip stitch the tails in the middle on the side facing you, then weave in the ends.

Turn your work inside out and you’re done!
