Crochet Block Stitch Ear Warmer Pattern – Perfect For Keeping Warm This Winter

As the weather starts to get colder I realise its time to get the hats and gloves out from their summer storage spaces and do a check on whether I need to make some more for the colder months ahead. This check highlighted that I need to make quite a few new hats, scarfs and gloves. Luckily I have had a few ideas in mind for some hats etc. that I haven’t yet had a chance to make, so I decided it was time to get these ideas made!

First up is a crochet ear warmer – its been too long since I made a project using block stitch so decided to combine these two together to make a crochet block stitch ear warmer.

I had some wool left from another project which was perfect for this project as it was nice and fluffy: Rowan Cosy Merino in Glacier (005). I continued this with another wool I had as the colours looked really nice together: Stylecraft Special DK in Spearmint (1842). You could use any wool colours and could always do a mix of different colours too.

Crochet Block Stitch Ear warmer Pattern:

Materials:

  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Wool: 2 colours. I used Spearmint for my colour 1 and grey for my colour 2.
  • Scissors.
  • Darning needle.

Notes:

  • Change colour in the last yo of the previous stitch.

Ear warmer pattern:

4mm hook, using colour 1.

Row 1: ch20, sc into 2nd ch from hook, (ch2, skip 2, sc into the next stitch) 6 times.

Row 2: ch4, 3tr/dc into ch2 gap, (ch1, 3tr/dc into ch2 gap) 5 times, ch1, tr/dc into final sc. Change to colour 2.

Row 3: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch), sc into top fo tr/dc, sc into ch1 gap, (ch2, sc into ch1 gap) 6 times, sc into 3rd ch of the ch4 at the start of the previous row. Change to colour 1.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the band is long enough to go comfortably around your head, ensuring you finish on a row 3.

Fasten off.

Fold the band in half right sides together, cast on using 4mm hook and colour 2:

Insert hook, pull up loop, ch1, sc into same stitch. Then complete sc stitches along the row to join the ends together.

Fasten off. Turn out the right way.

All finished!.
