Glittery Asymmetrical Chunky Crochet Ear Warmer

Chunky Crochet Ear Warmers

I need new climbing shoes, lucky readers,

like really bright teal ones that So Ill makes so pretty much the last thing I need to spend money on right now is the heating bill.

So I’m swaddling myself in extra layers, including this headband, which is one piece of acceptable “I don’t turn my heating on” clothing you can leave the apartment with without people thinking you’ve given up (sorry Hanes men’s XL sweatpants, I still love you). which I haven’t.

I’ve made quite a few hats this winter…but I always end up with a little leftover chunky yarn that I don’t know what to do with, so I started playing with a couple of ideas. First of all, I prefer asymmetry…like I hang pictures off-center on purpose, I triple pierced only one of my ears, you get the idea…so that’s a thing. And then I also really love the look of fpdc/bpdc and the way it accentuates the already chunky texture of a chunky yarn and I’m saying chunky way too much right now. chunky. Then I also like glitter because duh who doesn’t, and was like what if I mixed a little Vanna’s glamour into the mix.

so uh add all that up and what we have here is the GAC headband…glittery asymmetrical chunky headband…I need to hire someone just to name stuff for me because the new lows we are reaching are…we are definitely in correction territory here on MIL blog too yikes.

I mean, it could be cool, you know, just gonna throw on my G-A-C and …not even going to finish that sentence.

have a happy weekend, luckies,

Loopy Mango Merino No.5 is the only No. 5 I’ll ever need. Sorry not sorry Chanel. I swear you’ll consider buying an extra skein just to snuggle it.

The cheapest option for sure, but certainly not a compromise, thick and quick by lion brand gets a remake when used in conjunction with Vanna’s glamour


The GAC: Glittery Asymmetrical Chunky Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern

Row 1: With both chunky and Vanna’s Glamour yarns together, ch 38 (this gave me about 19″, a length the fits my head snuggly but not too tightly, you may have to adjust accordingly, any EVEN ch count will work), sl st in starting ch to join. Do not twist.

Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, sl st into top of ch 3 to join

Row 3: repeat row 2

Row 4: ch 3, alternate fpdc/bpdc around, sl st into top of ch 3 to join

Rows 5-6: repeat row 4, ensure fpdc stitches align with prior row, finish off.

you may add extra fpdc/bpdc rows to achieve the width you prefer. If you can’t live without symmetry, add a final row with regular dc in each st around.

You really can’t go wrong – regardless of what chunky yarn you have lying around, it will be nicely showcased by this stitch, and when it is interwoven with a little sparkle πŸ™‚
