If you loved my Bumps Upon Bumps Beanie pattern, you will love this free earwarmer pattern too.

Say hello to the Bumps Upon Bumps Earwarmer, perfect for the chilly but sunny winter walks!

It’s a fun and super easy pattern to use up some scrap aran/worsted yarn and the pattern is easily adjustable to fit any size.

Difficulty:          

Easy

Size:                                    

One size only  to fit an average adult’s head, but it can be easily changed to make a bigger or smaller size.

Materials needed:

  • 5 mm (H) Hook
  • Approximately 65 yards / 58 metres (30 grams) of worsted/aran weight yarn I used StyleCraft Special Aran in Lavender)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers

Stitches used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

ST/STS = stitch/stitches

SP = space

SLST = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

HDC = half double crochet

HDC3LO = half double crochet 3rd loop only

TR = treble crochet

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols

Additional terms/ Special Stitches:

Stitching in the 3rd loop only of HDC:

Look at the top of the stitch and locate the sideways ”V”, bend the stitch to look at the back and you should see another ”V”. You will be working into the back loop of that ”V”. This creates a nice, braided look.

Gauge:

4 HDC = 1”

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, that is not counted as a stitch.
  • Slip stitch doesn’t count as a stitch.
  • US terms used throughout
  • When you’re about to work in a stitch with a stitch marker in it, just simply take it out, I won’t include a separate note for that
  • Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern or state someting which can be unclear at first read
  • You can easily resize the earwarmer:

 to make it bigger just add 2 more or a multiple of 2 chains to the staring chain

OR

to make it smaller, simply take 2 or multiples of 2 chains from the starting chain
