Legend says that anyone who locked eyes with the gorgon Medusa would be turned to cold, hard stone. No one likes to be cold, but I like cold ears the least. Squishy, double-thick Tunisian crochet fabric is sure to keep your ears warm this Winter! Adjustable in both width and length, this is a very customizable project that will show off your bright, beautiful yarns well.
Child (Adult Narrow, Adult Wide)
3.5 (4, 4.5)” / 9 (10, 11) cm wide, laid flat; length is adjustable to the wearer’s head circumference
- US J (6.0mm) double ended Tunisian crochet hook
- US F (3.75 mm) standard crochet hook
- 150-230 yds (137-210 m) of dk weight yarn in two colors. The sample Used Yarn Over New York Greenwich Village in the colorways Steampunk Medusa (Color A) and Blackbird (Color B). This yarn is 100% superwash merino; 231 yds/211m per 100g skein.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
This pattern is great for leftover or partial skeins, as the largest size only used 50g of each color of yarn. You could easily also hold two strands of fingering weight yarn double to meet the dk gauge.
I suggest using a yarn that will feel soft against the ears, face, and back of neck.
The sample is shown in two high-contrast colors, but you can make it with any number of colors or combination you choose. You could even work from the inside and outside of a single caked skein for a one-color earwarmer. The combinations and color choices are endless!
