Ear Warmers

           In the depths of Winter I was tasked with creating cute crochet ear warmers/headbands for a former coworker.  In total she asked for 6 through the holidays to give as gifts.  She found exactly what she was looking for on Pinterest and sent me the links.  I just love Pinterest, so much worldy inspiration right at your fingertip! Ear warmers quickly became a favorite project of mine.  They work up so quickly, talk about instant gratification!  You could easily finish one in just a few hours if you have the time to spare.  Perfect traveling project as well. 
The first ear warmer was my favorite out of the two.  It was a lot quicker and I think it was cuter too.


 This pattern is free from Red Heart, here is the link: Crochet Flower Headband.  The pattern called for Red Heart Shimmer in Royal, I was pleased to have some waiting for me in my stash!! The green I used is Red Heart Comfort. This headband has two buttons on the back.  
The second ear warmer is really pretty.  It was requested in dark grey, I used Red Heart Soft.  

I really like the end result of this ear warmer, but I didn't like making it lol.  It was just too boring for me to really get in to it and get it done quickly!  Although I will probably make it again since so many people ended up liking it. This headband has two buttons on the back as well. The pattern is free here: Bow Headband.  This blog is really enjoyable and she has some other free patterns too, check it out! 
So if you're bored or need a portable project, check these easy patterns out.
Happy Hooking!!
