Verna Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Verna Ear Warmer crochet pattern is a cozy textured winter headband that is sure to keep your ears warm! This free crochet pattern includes sizes for everyone in the family.

For added warmth I use a wool blend yarn, which is also a #6 superbulky yarn too. That means this little project crochets up quickly.

Cute, quick and useful- the Verna Ear Warmer is a great gift for anyone on your list!
