Hi Crocheters! Today I am releasing a stashbuster crochet ear warmer pattern that you can make with Medium Weight Yarn [4] and a 6 mm (J) crochet hook. The Susie Ear Warmer Headband is a free crochet pattern and includes sizes Preemie to Adult.

The Susie Ear Warmer can be seamed with a twist-front (also known as a twisted earwarmer), or seamed flat like a traditional earwarmer. Instructions (including tutorials) are provided in the Finishing Instructions at the end of the post.

For my project I used some of my leftover yarn. Red Heart Hopscotch Yarn was one of my favorite yarns to work with; it was soft and plump (squishy to touch) and it was available in such pretty colors. I wish I had more in my stash but this is the very last of it. It has been discontinued.

If you don’t have this yarn in your yarn stash, don’t worry! Some substitutions that will work in a pinch are Red Heart with Love, Red Heart Roll With It, Caron One Pound, Caron Jumbo and Bernat Pop!. Or, if you really want to try this scrumptious yarn, you can check out the Ravelry Stashes here (243 people have stashed some away and some are willing to trade or sell it!) to use Hopscotch yarn for this project.

Finishing Instructions for all Susie Ear Warmer Sizes

You have 2 options. You can make a twisted headband and close it up like this. Or, you can make this a flat seam ear warmer following the instructions below in Option 2.

Option 1: Finish off leaving a 6 to 8-inch tail of yarn and follow these instructions to make a Twisted Susie Ear Warmer Headband.

Video Tutorial: https://youtu.be/71_ijlYUOPQ

Option 2: Flat Seam Susie Ear Warmer. Finish off leaving a 6-inch tail of yarn for seaming.

On a flat surface, with the right sides facing, 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. 

Once you have finished seaming your Susie Ear Warmer Headband, weave in any remaining ends securely.
