How to crochet an Ear Warmer
Hook G, worsted weight yarn (I used a cotton)
(This is the same stitch as my favorite crochet dish cloth. I love how it makes a scalloped border without having to crochet around the edge. The dish cloths are also super simple to make and make a great handmade gift)
Row 1: Chain 16, double crochet, chain 2, single crochet into 4th chain from hook, * Skip next 3 chains, work 2 double crochets, chain 2, single crochet in next chain stitch*,Repeat the stitches between * * to the end of the row.
Row 2: Chain 2 turn, double crochet, chain 2, single crochet in 1st chain 2 space, 2 double crochets, chain 2, single crochet into each remaining Chain 2 spaces across to end.
Weave in loose ends. Sew the ends of the strip together with a yarn needle.
Crochet a huge flower to make it extra fun! I used this crochet flower pattern. I added one extra row to make it even bigger by repeating the last row in the pattern.
