Mommy and me ear warmer set

THE FLEUR EAR WARMER

The fleur crochet ear warmer

YARN

The yarn I used was a new one for me. I used Hobby Lobby’s Yarn ID I have been eyeing for quite a while. It is made of 80% acrylic yarn and 20% polyamide (nylon) which makes it a little stretchier than your regular acrylic skein. I really enjoyed working with this yarn, it is soft and almost feels like I am working with soft wool but I’m not and it’s not itchy at all!

You can absolutely use any kind of acrylic yarn you have on hand or prefer. For my daughter’s ear warmer I used a Bernat super value yarn I already had in my stash. So I do not quite know the name of it, sorry!

Feel free to post pictures of your finished projects and/or links to your shops so all can see! I love it when you tag me @arianaehall on all social media! Thank you for your support! I hope you enjoy it! Happy Crocheting!

Please no sharing pictures or patterns are allowed. Feel free to make as many to sell and gift. I just ask to give credit to Ariana Hall. Thank you!

As always there is a PDF version available to print easily at home! Thank you for your support!

MATERIALS

Medium weight (#4) yarn – I Used Hobby Lobby Yarn ID and Bernat for the Pink color

J – 6.00 mm crochet hook

yarn needle

stitch marker ( optional)

Scissors

Measuring tape –  for head circumference measuring.

Notes:

  • Chain 2 at the beginning of each row DO NOT count as a stitch.
  • The twisted center is made at the end of the headband, leave a long piece of yarn before fastening off to sew it closed.
  • The rule of thumb here is to make the headband 1″-1.5″ smaller than the needed size because most yarns will stretch about that much and fit snug.

An example of the mommy and me set I made is My daughter’s head circumference is 19.5″ (3 years) I stopped at 18.5″ with Bernat Super Value.

My own head circumference is 22″ and stopped at 20″ because the Yarn I used was very stretchy. Turned out great!

  • You will always HDC in the previous HDC’s and Sl St in the previous Sl St’s and end in sl st every time.
  • Stitch markers are optional but useful when working with sl st’s on the ends.
  • I have a tight tension when I crochet but I try and keep my stitches loose when it comes to making a sl st. Helps to work a little easier in the next row.
  • Using different yarn weights may alter the size of the pattern. If you wish to make it less or more in width just make sure you have odd-numbered stitches so you always begin and end with a Sl St to keep the edges nice and straight.
  • And you can also not do the twist and have a wide pretty textured ear warmer 🙂

Center Twist Assembly:

  • Lay the ear warmer down flat. ( Both sides are right side)
  • Pinch both ends so they look like the picture down below.
  • Connect both ends until you have both ‘C’ shape ends overlapping each other like the picture down below.
  • Sew in a zig-zag motion making sure to sew through all four panels. Pull gently to scrunch the center and fasten off, weave in your ends.
  • Flip it inside out so the right side is now facing out and gently tug to adjust the twisted center to adjust it and you are finished! Enjoy!
Zig Zag through all four layers of the twisted center.
