Row 11: 1 hdc in each st this row (you are at the bottom row) (42 sts), to finish, make a sc in same st as the last hdc you did and in the next ch do a sl st. Leave a 4″ tail and weave in ends.

Inner layer: Make another piece for the inner layer using a smaller hook. No working in the back loops or 3rd loop in round 1. The inner layer is very simple and flat. Inner and outer layer have the same amount of stitches.

To attach: attach separate yarn anywhere and either single crochet together or use slip stitches. Weave all tails well so they don’t come out in the wash.

  1. Whenever I make earwarmers for myself I put a circle of fleece on the inside over the ears. Really helps keep them warmer.
