Tiny Pebbles Ear Warmer Free Crochet Pattern

When the cold weather hits, it’s time to break out the crochet ear warmers to keep our ears toasty warm.  The Tiny Pebbles Ear Warmer free crochet pattern is a beginner-friendly pattern with a simple basic stitch pattern and row repeat.  This quick make is a great gift (especially for last-minute gifting) or for selling at craft markets.

The free written pattern is available in two different sizes but I’ve included instructions for adjusting the size to whatever you’d like.  To get the fabulous texture in this crocheted ear warmer, we’re going to use a simple stitch to mimic the look of the bobble stitch.

Crochet ear warmers make a great gift or stocking stuffer. It’s a quick project that can be worked up in an hour or two.  I personally love them for being able to stuff them in my pocket or purse so I can keep my ears warm when it’s windy or cold and they look super cute with a high ponytail or messy bun. 

My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer satisfies my love of texture and my need for a cute and easy project that can be stuffed in my pocket when I’m done with it. That’s a win in my books.

What Kind of Yarn Can I Use To Follow This Free Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern?

​For this ear warmer the yarn weight I’ve chosen to use is a worsted weight (4) yarn. While I’ve used Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn because I like the added wool content, you can substitute your favourite worsted weight yarn for the Wool Ease as long as you can match gauge with it.  

See my list of suggested yarn substitutions below.
