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.

  • Is my screen loading wrong? Round two says “see special stitches” but my screen doesn’t load anything that says special stitches. Or do we need to buy the pdf to get that section?
