The inspo

The Cosmopolitan Earwarmer is the perfect combo for those who have a love-hate relationship with traditional beanies. This chic and incredibly quick to make earwarmer is like a messy bun beanie and a headband mashed into one! Wear it with your hair up or down – this baby is guaranteed to NOT ruin your hair while keeping your ears warm!

The pattern

This easy-to-follow pattern offers clear instructions and helpful tutorial photos – there will be no guesswork from your side! The pattern comes graded for 7 different sizes (Toddler, Child, Tween, Teen/ Adult Small, Adult Medium, Adult Large, Adult XL), so this earwarmer will be the perfect gift idea or make for the market season.

Sizes & yardages

Sizes are written as follows: 1 (2, 3, 4) (5, 6, 7) and correspond to Toddler, Child (XXS), Tween (XS), Teen/ Adult Small (S), Adult Medium (M), Adult Large (L), Adult XL (XL).
To measure the head circumference, place a tape measure across the forehead and the back of the neck, and measure around the full circumference of the head. Keep the tape snug for accurate results.

The design

The earwarmer features the ever-so-beautiful alpine stitch, incorporating the signature horizontal ribbing of the Cosmopolitan Crochet Collection. This time, the natural folding lines are cinched together at the front to display their full glory, and an afterthought braided detail is added for that extra oomph.
