Going Granny Earwarmer Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Quick and simple, the Going Granny Earwarmer Pattern is crocheted with Aran / Light Medium Weight Yarn [4] and a 5 mm (H) hook.

You can make this granny stitch earwarmer in less than an hour and it is a great way to hold your hair down and cover your ears. My daughter is always looking for headbands and earwarmers now because she usually wears the hood on her coat and doesn’t want both the hood and a hat together as they pull on one another and are uncomfortable.

A simple earwarmer is a great solution as it holds her hair down around her head and over her ears, and doesn’t interfere with her coat hood.

This pattern is available in sizes small child (3-5 years) to adult large, for free, in the post below:

Notes:

Multiple of 4+3 (plus 2 for the turning chain) (Understanding Stitch Multiples)

When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.

To add approximately one inch of height, increase the starting chain by 4.

To increase the width (circumference) repeat R2 and R3 as many, or as few, times as you wish. 3 rows is approximately 2 inches.

Finishing Instructions for All Earwarmers

Finish off leaving a 6-inch tail of yarn for seaming.

On a flat surface, fold your project in half bringing the first and last rows together and lining up the stitches. Thread your yarn end on a yarn needle and work through both layers; whipstitch (view tutorial here) once for each stitch and ch1sp. 

Once you have finished seaming the earwarmer, weave in any remaining ends securely.
