The Feathers Ear Warmer is beautiful and cozy! This easy, twisted design is worked in the popular feather stitch.
Welcome to the final week of the Midwinter Crochet Along! This week we will make the Feathers Accessory set including an ear warmer, beanie and cowl. It has been so much fun working the previous weeks sets with you and I enjoy seeing all of your finished projects.
Our pattern today is worked in rows and uses the beautiful and plush feather stitch. This stitch is so much fun to work and the result is a cozy, puffy fabric that makes wonderful warm accessories.

The yarn shown in the photos above is called Scarfie by Lion Brand Yarn. It is an acrylic/wool blended yarn that is a bulky weight. I love how cozy it looks and it’s gradually changing colours. For the ear warmer you will need about one third of a ball (approximately 100 yards).
For this pattern you will also need a 6.5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below you will see me working with a Wooden Streamline crochet hook by Furls Crochet.

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.
