Crochet Project - Brimmed Ear Warmers By Christa Jensen

Wow...what a great crafty guest blogger post for this week. If you love to crochet, I think you will absolutely fall in love with this project by guest blogger Christa Jensen. Thank you Christa for sharing your wonderful project with us!

Here is what you will need:

Worsted Weight Yarn
J Hook or Size to Obtain Gauge

Gauge: 3 to 3 ½ inches width. To gauge the circumference of the head use a scrap piece of yarn to measure around the largest part of the head. Decrease final measure by a half inch for the snug fit.

NOTE: You will chain the amount that equals the length of yarn, sl st together (make sure not to twist the chain)

1st Row: Ch 2, hd in same st, *hd in ea ch* sl st to top of begin hd (not top of chain 2)

2nd – 6th Row: Repeat 1st Row

Fasten off.

Edging Top: Fasten onto chain row, chain 1 single crochet in same st, *single in next st* sl st to beginning sc. (repeat one more time.)

Edging Bottom with Brim: Fasten on bottom (where you finished off hdc rows) chain 1 single crochet in same st, *single in next st* sl st to beginning, fasten off

For Brim- Row 1: Fasten on (where you finished off), ch 1, sc in same st, hdc in next, 2dc in next, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* repeat ** 5 times, hdc in next st, sc in next st, fasten off.

For Brim- Row 2: Fasten on (where you finished off), ch 1 sc in same st, sc around to start of brim, sc in first st of brim, hdc in next st, 2 dc in next st, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* repeat ** 8 more times, hdc in next st, sc in next and around. Fasten off.

Weave in all ends.

This is an original design by Christa Jensen. This is written from memory of a custom ear warmer I came up with for a Christmas present; it has not been tested yet for accuracy. It will be updated should it need to be as I have orders coming for 2 more. IF you find any errors until then please contact me.This pattern is free to use for personal projects only.
