The Amelia Earwarmer was my very first published crochet pattern!

This easy crochet earwarmer pattern was published on Ravelry way back in February 2014! I am now offering it here on my blog for free!

Pattern Details

The Amelia Earwarmer is made with bulky (#5) weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Brava Bulky for my sample, pictured above.

Brava Bulky is a 100% premium acrylic yarn that is really soft and sturdy! This yarn comes in over 25 colors and can be machine washed and dried. It is a really nice bulky (#5) weight yarn at a great price! At 136 yards to a skein, you can get multiple toddler and child size earwarmers out of one skein!

This is a beginner friendly crochet pattern, using just single and double crochet stitches, and worked in rows. It’s easy to adjust and customize to your preferences.

You’ll need approximately 60 – 100 yards of yarn and 2 -1.25″ buttons to make this earwarmer.
