The Trinity Ear Warmer makes a perfect gift for friends and family, whether it be a birthday or Christmas gift. I designed it using a lightweight yarn, however a weight 4 will work perfectly fine for this piece but it will give the headband a very chunky look and feel. It’s really easy to make this ear warmer in any size by simply adjusting the length.
When we begin crocheting this ear warmer, the chain we begin with will determine the width. The pattern written below gives a width of about 5 inches but you can simple adjust be crochet less or more chains but make sure this number is even.
The headband is crocheted in a tubular shape, giving the piece a double layer feel, so keep that in mind when choosing your yarn
When creating this ear warmer I wanted it to have a twist but if you prefer it not to have it you can just easily crochet to the proper length according to the head size and simply seam the ends together. Simple, right!?
The crochet Trinity Ear warmer was designed using Hobbii Highland Wool which is a light weight or Dk yarn. I opted for a light weight yarn because at the time of making this headband the weather was still mild but you can also make it in a heavier yarn for optimal warmth during the very cold months. The best thing about this ear warmer is that it’s really easy to change things up such as yarn weights, hook sizes and head sizes. Simply adjust the length.
