The Black Cherry Ear Warmer is an easy twisted ear warmer pattern featuring a lot of texture!
I love the texture in this ear warmer – you will find big bobble stitches and ridge stitches that are created by working in the third loop. If you are not quite sure about what the third loop is, don’t worry, you can learn all about this technique in the video tutorial following the written pattern.
Welcome to week two, day one of the The Midwinter Crochet Along! Last week we had a blast with the herringbone single crochet stitch that we used in the Glacier Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern, the Glacier Beanie Crochet Pattern, and the Glacier Cowl Crochet Pattern.
This week we continue playing with new textures in this Black Cherry set.

For this ear warmer today I will be using a little bit (about 100 yards) of the Scarfie Yarn by Lion Brand. It is a bulky weight yarn and down below in the pattern notes you will find stitch multiples, should you need to adjust the size if you are using a different yarn. I will also be using a 6.5 mm crochet hook.
The pattern will be written out in full below on my blog, however if you would like to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you may do so from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:

Fasten off, weave in your ends.
Fold your ear warmer in half so that the two short ends are touching. Taking the two shorter ends in each had, fold on end in half so that it is making a “u” shape. Now, keeping the far side away from you, slide the two short ends together so that the layers are stacking interlocking (i.e. you’ll have a layer of side A, then B, A, then B).
Now, using the remaining long tail, thread your needle and sew the two ends together being sure to work through all 4 layers of fabric. Fasten off and weave in your ends. Turn the ear warmer so that it is now right side out.
