Social media has been exploding with crown ear warmers. Super cute for children and even adults. Below I break down how I created my ear warmer to work up super quick and easy.

I would like to give credit where credit is due. If you know the original creator of the crown ear warmer, please let me know.

Directions:

You will need to know the circumference of the head you are going to fit the ear warmer on. If you do not know the circumference there are handy charts you can find online with average sizes.

Chain to the needed size. I measure my chain stretched out to the measurement of my circumference. Join the yarn making a circle. Be careful not to twist your circle. This will be the base of the crown.

Round 1

Half double crochet in each stitch, starting in the next chain space. I always crochet in the backbone of the chain, it makes for a cleaner edge on the finished product.

Join into the front two loops of your first half double crochet.

Round 2

Chain 2 (this counts as a double crochet), double crochet in the back two loops of each stitch. Slip stitch in your first double crochet (Chain two).

Round 3

Chain 2 (this counts as a double crochet), double crochet in each stitch (you can continue to crochet in the back loop to create a ribbed look). Slip stitch in your first double crochet (Chain two).

Round 4

Repeat round 3.

Round 5

Chain 1, single crochet around.

Round 6

  • Shell Stitch – is a variation of stitches created in a single stitch to create an arc or in this case a crown point. The variation I am using is 3hdc, dc, chain 2, slip stitch in first chain (this is the peak of the crown point), 3hdc.

Chain 1 *skip two stitches, slip stitch in third stitch, skip two stitches, slip stitch in third stitch, shell stitch in that same stitch.  repeat from * until the end of the round.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
