Materials for the Ear Warmer:

  • 1 Ball of Lion Brand’s Tweed Stripes Yarn

  • Tapestry Needle

Materials for the Ruffle Flower:

Note: I used Lion Brand’s Hometown USA and 9.0 mm hook for the bottom ruffle flower and Red Heart Super Saver and a 6.0 mm hook for the top flower. However, you can use any of the yarn leftovers you may have on hand. Be sure to check yarn label for hook recommendation.

  • Yarn scraps of your choice that match/coordinate the ear warmer

  • 1 Button

Instructions for the Ear Warmer:

  • Note: Stitch sequence is a multiple of 2 + 4. To make a puff stitch, wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (3 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up another loop (5 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (7 loops on your hook). Wrap yarn around hook one more time and bring it through all 7 loops on your hook. (Scroll down for a more detailed photo tutorial)
  • Ch 14
  • Foundation Row: In the fourth ch from the hook, work a puff stitch, then ch 1. *Skip 1 ch and in the next ch, work a puff stitch. Repeat from * until you have two ch left on the hook. Skip the second to last ch and in the last ch, work 1 dc. There should be 5 “puffs” on this row.
  • Row 1: Chain three and turn. Work a (puff stitch, ch 1) in the top stitch of each puff from previous row, for a total of 5 puff stitches across. Work a dc in the top stitch of the turning ch.
  • Repeat row 1 until ear warmer is desired length and comfortably fits around head, accounting for a little bit of stretch. Fasten off and weave in ends.
