Quick Gift Ear Warmer (12 Weeks of Gifting Series), Free Crochet Pattern + Video

The Quick Gift Ear Warmer is a lightning fast (I made this one in under an hour!) project that pairs beautifully with a scarf or cowl for an amazing handmade gift!  Made it headband style or add an optional cinch for a fun extra!

This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series!  Each week from NOW to the end of December, I'll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up.  We'll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit.  Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!

With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it's hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list!  No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue!  Click the link below for the full directory of projects:

  • Small amounts of Red Heart Super Saver Chunky (Color shown is "Dark Orchid")

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


Ch 19 (multiple of 6+1)

Round/Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc.  *Skip two ch then work a sc in the next ch.  skip 2 ch and in the next ch, work 4 dc.  Repeat from * until there are 3 ch left on the row.  Skip the next two ch, and in the very last ch, work a sc.

Round/Row 2:  Ch 3 and turn.  Work 2 dc in the sc from the previous row.  *Work a sc in the center space of the fan from the previous row (area in between the posts right in the center).  Work 4 dc in the sc in between the next two fans.  Repeat from * to the end of the row.  Work a sc in the turning chain space to finish the row.

Repeat row 2 until the piece is approximately 20 inches long or desired length.  Be sure to save about 12-18 inches of yarn to work the seam (see below).

Do not fasten off and sandwich the two ends together.  Work a slip stitch seam into both layers all the way across (see the video if you need to see the seam worked + a few tips too).

If you like you can also add a "cinch" to the top of the ear warmer to give it a little interest.  With a matching piece of yarn, sew a running stitch into the top of the ear warmer and pull tight to create the cinch.  Fasten securely.  

Weave in any ends that remain.
