Verna Puff Stitch Ear Warmer Pattern

Here’s how it works.

The Verna Puff Stitch Ear Warmer Pattern is an easy-to-crochet project that uses pretty puff stitches and front and back post double crochet stitches to create texture and warmth.

This headband (Ear Warmer) is wide enough to completely cover your ears and super soft and warm.

Ear Warmers that cover the tips of my ears are fine for days without wind, but those are few and far between! I want an earwarmer that will keep my entire ear warm!

The Verna Puff Stitch Ear Warmer Pattern is part of a Winter Crochet Set. You can get the free scarf pattern that matches this ear warmer here: Verna Puff Stitch Infinity Scarf

Special Stitches

Puff Stitch (ps)

*Yarn over the hook, insert the hook into the specified stitch (or space), yarn over and pull up 1 loop**. Rep from * to ** 4 times. You will now have 9 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all nine loops to complete the stitch.

Tip: Keep the hook part of  your hook pointing downwards and pull up slightly on the hook as you are pulling the last yarn over through. It will help the hook slide through along the back straight edge without grabbing the other loops and snagging.

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple is 2 + 4
  • I work into the back bar of the starting chain row, this is the loop just behind and beneath the back loop. I find it provides more elasticity to the foundation row. You may work under whichever loop/loops you prefer.
  • The ch 3 at the beginning of the puff stitch rows is a double crochet but for the purposes of making this easy-to-follow (and easier-to-write) we are going to refer to it as a ch3sp for the instructions.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.

Finishing

With the Right Side (RS) facing (the image below shows you what this will look like if you crocheting right-handed. If you are left-handed your yarn ends would be on the right.) Fold your earwarmer in half down the center to bring the two side edges together (keeping the right side facing you). Using a whipstitch seam, join the two side edges of the earwarmer together.
