Lorraine
Ear Warmers
A free tutorial
by Jessie At Home

Lorraine-Free-Crochet-Ear-Warmer-Pattern-Side

The littles and I wanted to give their awesome principal a Christmas gift. I remembered her helping students out of cars at the drop off door in the snow…with no hat or head/ear covering of any sort. I don’t know if she just forgot, or if she didn’t want to mess up her hair. So I came up with a quick ear warmer pattern that buttons in the back. This is a great way to keep ears warm, without a lot of damage to styled hair!
