Notes

  • Please be sure to read the Baby Bean Stitch notes above in Special Stitches because the sc2tog cluster is not worked as you would expect it to be worked! There is one extra yarn over in there to make it easy to crochet! Please see the Special Stitches Section.
  • This project is worked back-and-forth in rows
  • This project is worked width-wise so it is easy to make it longer or shorter to fit any size head.
  • For every inch in width you would like add 2 extra chain stitches to your starting chain. The stitch multiple is 2 + 1 (for the starting chain)

  1. Hi Geri, I wonder if this one by Mamachee would work? It doesn’t have earflaps per se but it covers the ears well and is adjusted in the front to allow full ear coverage…free pattern too – I’ve been wanting to crochet it for myself for a while. I’ve made her slippers before and Tara has really great patterns. Here’s the link: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/everly-head-wrap If it doesn’t work though let me know and I will check again 🙂 Or perhaps I will try to design one myself if I can’t find one 🙂 any size specifically? Thanks, Rhondda

    I love your designs and how reader-friendly your instructions are. I’ve made many of your hats for charity and now I’m asking for something specific: Do you have a pattern for an ear warmer with ear flaps? I’ve googled such a beast and have come up with zilch =(
    Just a plain ol’ headband the likes of your Bean Stitch Ear Warmer with integrated ear flaps is what I’m dying for. I’ve had requests for the like and have attempted to adapt headband patterns on my own…but apparently I suck. Please help for charity!
