The ear warmers were made with the Lion Brand Anti-pilling yarn, which is a worsted weight yarn. They are easy to make using single crochet, double crochet, and single crochet in back loop only. The only difference is the twisting of the stitches, of which after working a few of them, they are simple enough for an advanced beginner. The colors blend so well together and are suitable for any season.

The ear warmers were made lengthwise with the pattern in the middle and the scblo sts on both ends. One side of the warmer has buttonhole and the other side has the button.

Ch 1 at the beginning/end of the rows does not count as a st throughout.
