The Glacier Ear Warmer is an easy crochet pattern that is worked in one of my favourite crochet stitches: the herringbone stitch!
Welcome to Week One of the Mid Winter Crochet Along! I am very happy that you have decided to crochet along with me. This week we will make the Glacier matching set which includes the Glacier Ear Warmer, the Glacier Beanie and the Cowl.
Is this your first time hearing about the Mid Winter Crochet Along? No worries! This crochet along will run for three weeks (starting today!) and during this time we will make three matching ear warmer, beanie and cowl sets. All of the details can be found here: The Midwinter Crochet Along and I hope you will crochet along.
Today we start with the Glacier Ear Warmer!
This Ear Warmer is an easy crochet pattern that is worked in rows. I have designed and displayed it here as a twisted ear warmer, but you may also wish to leave the twist out! It is up to you!

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.
