all the hipsters are wearing them these days…

it seems like every girl i see on campus is wearing a knit or crochet earwarmer with a flower applique. i think they are so cute and have been keeping my eye open for a pattern i liked. i found one for knitting, but i started it and just wasn’t feeling it so i decided to whip one up with the trusty crochet hook. i didn’t follow a pattern for the earwarmer – it is just single crochet, started with 3 and added stitches until it was wide enough and decreased back down to 3 at the end. i made a little loop for the button by just chaining two in between the second and third sc in the final row. i used the darling posy applique pattern from crochet spot for the flower – made both the 5 petal and 6 petal and put the 5 on top of the 6.

it is just a touch too loose, but it seems to be staying on alright. i might be able to wiggle the button through a regular hole in the second or third row from the end.

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
