Bobble Ear Warmer


(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.)

Okay, confession time. This was one of the first patterns I designed as far as head gear. I think it turned out pretty well all things considered. And this was one of the first times I tried to photograph a person (namely me back in my short hair mode) wearing said pattern.

Looking back on the pattern (now that I am sharing it here on my blog since the rights have reverted to me) I have to say...not too shabby girl! The pattern works up nice and quick and the bobbles give it some texture to add a little interest. The Red Heart Shimmer yarn had just enough sparkle to make it holiday ready.

Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue.

Skill Level:  Easy

Materials: Any Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart Shimmer for the pictured ear warmer), button (a size that will fit between your dc’s)

Hook size: I/5.50mm

Abbreviations:
CC = change color
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
HDC = half double crochet
DC = double crochet
SL ST = slip stitch
YO = yarn over

Gauge: 4 dc = 1 inch

Note: To form bobble – [YO, insert hook into stitch, pull through, YO, Pull through 2 loops] 5 times. You should now have 6 loops on hook. YO, pull through all 6 loops.
