If you’re familiar with some of the patterns I’ve already released on the blog, you may have noticed that I LOVE texture. I am always looking to try to apply new and different textures to projects to see what I come up with. This week’s free crochet pattern is no exception. My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer pattern is beginner-friendly and works up in a flash.
If you can do single crochet and a triple/treble crochet, you can make this ear warmer. Alternating the single and triple/treble crochets, it creates this lovely little pebbly-looking texture. To finish the ear warmer off, I use a length of yarn to wrap around the seam which hides it and gives the ear warmer a seamless look.

Crochet ear warmers make a great stocking stuffer or gift. Because it works up quickly, you can whip up a bunch fast if you’re inclined to sell your finished items at craft sales. 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 cool but I’m not feeling like rocking a hat. My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer satisfies my love of texture and my need for something cute that can be stuffed in my pocket when I’m done with it. That’s a win in my books.
