Crochet Pattern: Chunky Basketweave Earwarmers

By Amy – Be the first to comment

In the winter, chunky and bulky yarns are my favorite to crochet with. I love the feel of the material as I crochet as well as how they wear or look when finished.

Another thing I find indispensable in the winter are earwarmers. My ears always freeze, so if I am not already wearing a hat, I must have earwarmers with me at all times. This pair of earwarmers is the perfect choice with it’s chunky yarn, basketweave stitch, and wooden buttons.

Make the earwarmers in four rows of basketweave material and then single crochet around for a finished piece. Buttons add just the right touch, and you don’t have to worry about buttonholes because the fabric creates them naturally.

Here’s to warm ears this coming winter!

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 3.5” (9 cm) wide x 24” (61 cm) long, unbuttoned and laid flat

Materials:
Super Bulky weight yarn (approximately 80 yards)
Crochet hook J (6.00 mm)
2 buttons 1″ in diameter
Sewing needle and thread

Gauge:
5 dc = 2’’
2 rows = 2’’
Gauge Swatch: 2’’w x 2’’h (5 cm x 5 cm) ch 7.
Row 1: dc in fourth ch from hook and in each ch across: 5 dc
Row 2: ch 3, turn, dc in each dc across: 5 dc
Finish off.

Notes on size changes: for a smaller fit, crochet fewer chains to begin with and then continue pattern as instructed.

Row 1: ch 52, dc in fourth ch from hook and in each ch across: 50 dc
Note: beginning ch 3 counts as 1 dc throughout pattern.
Row 2 – 4: ch 3, turn, skip first dc, (fpdc in next dc, bpdc in next dc) across, dc in top of beginning ch-3: 50 dc
Single crochet evenly around, working only 2 sc in each corner for a rounder look, finish off.

With right side of ear warmers facing you, sew buttons along left end with sewing needle and thread. The chunky stitches themselves make natural buttons holes.
