Hello Crafters 🙂
This week I’m sharing this awesome bobble ear warmer with you! The great thing about this pattern is you can use any yarn and any hook size because instead of counting stitches you just measure against your head as you go. I shared the yarn and hook size that I used in case you want to make exactly what I made but feel free to dig through your yarn stash and use up one of those instead.
*NOTE* I am not saying that you can’t go out and buy a new yarn. I would never say something so ridiculous.
Supplies you will need for your Bobble Ear Warmer
- 10mm crochet hook
- Loops & Threads CAMDEN WOOL BIG! in ‘Mocha’
- Head to measure
Chain 10 + 1
Row 1: Single crochet in each stitch across.
Row 2: Turn. Ch 2. DC4tog. *Into the stitch indicated with the pin in photo* The ch2 counts as your first DC so the DC4tog is actually your first DC5tog [SC in next stitch. DC5tog] Repeat brackets to end of row. Should end with a single crochet stitch in the last stitch. You will have five bobble stitches.
DC5tog : DC but instead of yo pull through two loops twice you only yo and pull through the first two loops and leave the remaining 2 loops on your hook. Do this for all 5 DC leaving you with 6 loops on your hook. At this point, yo and pull through all the loops on your hook.
*note* When you are doing the first bobble stitch where the ch2 counts as one of your five dc stitches you will only have 5 loops on the hook before you yo and pull through all the loops.
Row 3: Turn. Ch1. SC in each stitch across.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the length of the ear warmer fits snugly around your head! Remember that after you wash it a few times and wear it in it will loosen slightly so it’s better to be a bit too tight than a bit loose.
Finishing your bobble ear warmer:
You want to end with a bobble stitch row because we started with a single crochet row so you will have 2 rows on single crochet at the join if you end with a row of single crochet. Basically you want to keep the pattern continuous by having only one row of single crochet between each bobble row.
Once you are satisfied with the length of your ear warmer simply fold the two short ends together (with the bobble stitches facing each other) and slip stitch them closed.
Flip the ear warmer right way round and enjoy! 🙂
