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. The color options are endless and with this bow that I created the bow can be worn towards the side of the head or nearer to the front. I just love this bow ear warmer and it's really simple to make.


For this head bow you will need a worsted weight yarn, a 5mm hook and two buttons. So lets get started.

Band:

Ch 80 using 5mm (H) crochet hook.

Dc into the 3rd chain from hook. Dc all the way across row to end. You should have
78 stitches by the end of this row. Turn.

Ch 2. Dc all the way across the row to end.

Repeat last row until you have a total of 5 rows. If you want the band of the ear
warmer wider, add more rows.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Sew two buttons about 2 cm in from edge of one end of the band.

Bow:

Ch 35
Join with a sl st to the first chain that you made to form a loop. Make sure not to twist
the chain. Ch 2.

Dc into the next ch and then dc all the way around. Join with a sl st to the top of the
beginning ch 2 that you made at the start of the round.

Ch 2 and dc all the way around. Join with a sl st to the ch 2 at the beginning of last
round.

Repeat the last row until you have a total of 7 rounds.

Fasten off and weave in all ends. With your finger tips create a bow by cinching the
top and bottom together and secure with a small stitch with your yarn needle. Put to

one side.

Bow Cincher:

Ch 5

Dc into the 3rd ch from the hook. Dc across to end. You should now have 3 stitches.

Ch 2 and dc to end.

Repeat last row until you have a total of 8-9 rows.

Fasten off leaving a long tail.

Assembly:

Lay your band flat on a hard surface and place the bow on top of the band. With the
cincher (the small strip) wrap around the centre of bow and around the band. Sew the
two ends of the cincher at the back being careful not to stitch into the band. Weave in

all ends. The bow is now adjustable and can be worn towards the centre or off to one
side. There is no need to make button holes as the buttons will connect into any of the
double crochet stitches.

Enjoy xx
