Free Ear Saver Crochet Pattern
I have so much respect for the front line workers as well as all essential workers. So a couple weeks ago friends started sending requests for ear saver. At the time all they had was a picture of what they wanted. I didn’t know what they were called so I set out to make some.
Well, life gets in the way and I’m sure by now there are tons of patterns out there for them. But I decided to share this one anyway.
