This is such a cute cinched ear warmer crochet pattern and so easy to make! The best part is that the Lookin’ Swell Ear Warmer is a one-skein project and works up super fast. You can even make a matching one for your little ones as well. This pattern uses the Tunisian knit stitch which is one of the coolest Tunisian crochet stitches because it looks exactly like the knit stitch seen in knitting. I’ve included a link to a Tunisian knit stitch tutorial in the pattern that you can check out below.

I was gifted this beautiful yarn from We Crochet. I had never worked with this bulky 100% Pima cotton yarn. It is so soft and I love that it goes from thin to thick creating a beautiful texture! You can grab some Billow yarn here or by clicking the picture below!

Tunisian Crochet Earwarmer Pattern Notes:

This pattern is for a knit-like beginner-friendly Tunisian crochet ear warmer in toddler, child, and adult sizes that can be completed in 1 hour. It’s the perfect ear warmer to practice the basic Tunisian knit stitch! The best part is that it’s a one-skein project and works up super fast so it’s great for market prep and gift making! You can make a matching one for your little one as well. Below you will find the written instructions for the child size. You can upgrade to the ad-free PDF for the toddler and adult sizes.

  • Pattern rows are Forward pass instructions.
  • The following instructions are implied: 
    • The loop already on the hook at the beginning of the row counts as the first st. 
    • Always Tunisian simple stitch in the last st of the row, being sure to work under both loops of the st.

Pattern Notes continued…

  • Return Pass: Follow the foundation row and each row with the Return Pass in the same color unless a color change is needed.
    • Return Pass Instructions: Ch 1, *yarn over, pull through two loops; repeat from * until 1 loop remains on the hook.
  • Note: Measure your gauge swatch across unstretched and stretched. Note the two numbers and subtract to find the difference. This is how much you will need to subtract from the head circumference measurement to determine total length. 
    • Example:
      • The Gauge swatch stretched is 5 in. and unstretched it is 4 in. 5 -4 = 1 in. You will need to subtract 1 in. from the head circumference measurement. 
      • 21 in. head circumference – 1 in. = 20 in. This means you will need to work the piece to a total length of 20 in. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
      • Note: Depending on the stretchiness of yarn and head size of the toddler/child, you may want to decrease the width by 1 or 2 stitches.


Abbreviations:

Sl st: Slip stitch

Ch: Chain
