100g Scheepjes Chunky Monkey Yarn (I used about half a ball) in the colour Bumblebee
5mm Crochet Hook
This Pattern is written using UK terminology: UK Double Crochet (DC) = US single crochet (SC)
UK Treble Crochet (TC) = US Double Crochet (DC)
ch – Chain
sl st – Slip Stitch
dc – Double Crochet
tc – Treble Crochet
OKAY TIME TO GRAB YOU HOOK AND YARN AND LETS GET GOING :))))))
Row 1 – tc into the 3rd ch from the hook then place alternate dc, tc into each st along (I like to crochet into the back loops please see the tutorial if you are unsure of how to do this) (68 sts)
Row 2 – Ch 2 and and turn your work, place a tc into the same st, then place alternate dc and tc into every st along (68 sts)
Row 3 – 9 – Ch 2 and turn your work, place a tc into the same st, then place alternate dc and tc into every st along (68 sts)
ch 1 tie off the yarn
Lay your work horizontally with the right side facing up. Fold the earwarmer in half lengthwise, right sides together. Hold each of the two short folded sides, one in each hand. Bring the two short folded sides up to meet one another. Insert one folded side into the other, overlapping the folded halves (think of the two ends like two interlocking ‘c’ shapes.
You should have 4 layers to stitch through. With a tapestry needle and the yarn end sew the edges together. (the seem will be hidden in the twist).
Weave in loose ends and turn the earwarmer right-side out
(You may find it easier to watch the tutorial to support you in making the twist)
I hope you enjoy this free pattern
