I have to start by saying, this is by far the easiest and quickest project I’ve ever done! So whether you are brand new to crochet or have been in the game for a while, this project will take little time (and yarn!).
I made a bunch of these ear warmers pretty neutral colors. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice which is a worsted weighted yarn. I like the fluffiness it seems to give and is a true worsted weight yarn that made the headband cozy.
Another yarn I would suggest to use is Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn! They have several colors to choose from and it has the same soft, cozy feel (maybe even softer, to be honest!).
All you’ll need to know for this simple crochet ear warmer is how to chain and half-double crochet. That’s it! We will be working in the round and it’s only a total of 8 rows or less if you are making smaller sizes.
These are great stocking stuffers, gifts for a group of people, selling at markets, and/or donations. You can definitely sit down and make several in one night!
If you sell your crocheted work, these are great small items to have avaiable for your customers. When I used to sell my finished crocheted items, these were always a good seller.
They were my lower priced items at about $10-12 dollars and people always love something simple and easy to wear with anything!

Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern
I/5.50 mm hook
Any worsted weight yarn
I used Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s choice in various neutral colors
Tapestry needle to cinch and weave in ends
Stitches to know (US terms)
HDC (half-double crochet)
Easily make the following sizes by starting with the following beginning number of chains and number of rows:
0-3 months – 34 beginning chains, 5 rows
3-6 months – 37 beginning chains, 5 rows
6-12 months – 40 beginning chains, 6 rows
toddler – 46 beginning chains, 6 rows
child – 52 beginning chains, 8 rows
adult – 56 beginning chains, 8 rows
Number of rows can be personalized if you would like a skinnier or wider ear warmer.
Be sure to chain loosely for your beginning chain, so it can stretch comfortably around the head.
Gauge: 2” x 2” ~ 7 stitches x 5 rows in half double crochet
Row 1: Start by chaining beginning number of chains for the size you are making, careful not to twist the chain, slip stitch into the first chain
Begin working in rounds
Row 2: Ch 1 and hdc around, join to the first hdc
Repeat Row 2 until you have the number of rows you need for the size you are making.
Fasten off and leave long tail to make the cinch detail.
Place ear warmer with seam facing you in the middle. Insert tapestry needle with yarn through one stitch next to where you fastened off, one through the middle, and one through the stitch farthest from the point where you fastened off. Bring the needle behind the cinch and go through those three points again. Repeat one last time to ensure it is secure. Knot in the back of the cinch and weave in ends.
