Crochet Bow Ear Warmer

Nothing dresses up a dull outfit like a cute bow ear warmer. If you're not a beanie person then the next best thing is one of these cuties.

I took my hook and yarn out and began crocheting a shape (with alot of trial and error!) similar to that of a mushroom. I am so happy with the way it turned out that I am definitely going to make this a staple in my festival adventures!
So what did I do?
First of all you will need worsted weight yarn in red, beige and white. The crochet hook that I used was a 6mm.
Base of mushroom:
With your beige yarn make a magic loop Rounds are continuous ( slip stitches at the end of rounds or chains at the beginning!!)
6 single crochet into the ring (6)
Make 2 single crochets into each stitch around (12)
