Welcome to the Kelly Ear Warmer, a Tunisian crochet pattern. This is a collaboration with Clover USA and I’m so excited to be back on their blog as a guest designer. This pattern was inspired by my beautiful friends in the Maker community. I wanted to create something that I could wear every day and know I’m walking around representing my Maker Tribe.
This Ear Warmer is made by making a large rectangle, whip stitching the rectangle together, and then creating a twist to join. I’ve included Adult and Child sizes. I love my Clover Takumi Bamboo Tunisian Interchangeable Crochet Hooks and they’re great for all my Tunisian Projects. Simple knowledge of Tunisian crochet is needed. Some very helpful tips with Tunisian crochet is to train yourself to crochet loosely, test your gauge, and you can change your hook size to meet gauge if needed. I’ve created a video on how to join and create a twist, you can find it HERE.
- J/6.0 mm Tunisian Hook with 12-16 inch cord or longer, I love my Clover Tunisian Set or J/6.0 mm Hook, 16-inch cord, cord stopper
- Worsted Weight, #4 yarn
- Tapestry Needle, I love my Clover set
- Scissors, I love my Clover Patchwork
- 3.0 oz/86 g or 185 y/170 m. I used 100%, Merino Wool
Adult & Child
- 4 x 4 inches of tfs = 14 sts x 16 rows
ch = chain
sts = stitches
FwP = forward pass
RetP = return pass

- Read through pattern thoroughly first.
- Check your gauge.
- Child pattern is in ( ).
Row 1: FwP: Ch 31 (23), pull a loop up on 2nd chain from hook. Pull up loops on remaining chains. (30, 22 sts) Standard RetP
Row 2: FwP: Tfs by inserting the hook into 1st space between 1st and 2nd vertical bars, pull up a loop. *Insert hook into next space between vertical bars, pull up a loop*. Repeat from * to * making sure not to pull up a loop in the last space. Insert hook and pull up a loop into edge stitch. (30, 22 sts) Standard RetP
Row 3: FwP: Tfs by inserting the hook into 2nd space between 2nd and 3rd vertical bars, pull up a loop. *Insert hook into next space between vertical bars, pull up a loop*. Repeat from * to * making sure to pull up a loop in the last space. Insert hook and pull up a loop into edge stitch. (30, 22 its) Standard RetP
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until Row 80 (76) or until you have reached 20 inches (19 inches).
Bind off. Bind off is like a slip stitch. Insert hook into 1st vertical bar, pull up and slip stitch. Continue to end of the row, fasten off leaving a 30-inch tail.
With wrong sides together (right sides facing out), fold your rectangle in half and line up rows. Whip stitch through both edge stitches to other end. Don’t fasten off, you’ll use that tail to create the twist. Video tutorial located HERE
With right sides together (seam facing out & centered), fold ends together. Pinch ends together making a U, sandwich ends together by laying left fold, right fold, left fold, and right fold. Sew through all to create a twist.
Fasten off and turn right side out.
