Charmfully Chunky Flower & Earwarmer Crochet Pattern

Although I prefer warmer weather, I'm surprisingly enjoying putting together my "winter wardrobe"! There is something exciting about rummaging through cupboards, and re-finding those lost gems consisting of coats, sweaters and chunky knits you previously stored away.
 If, unlike myself, you live someplace other than Australia, please tell me where you call home in the comments below! I'm always fascinated and intrigued by how far our little family spreads across the globe.

But seeing as yesterday was the first day of Spring for most of you (according to Google Analytics), you're probably in the happy process of packing winter away, and welcoming spring, sunshine and the beach with open arms!
I'd love to know, what's your favourite season?

  3. South Georgia USA - very close to the Florida border. One more cool spell for us next week. Would you believe my husband is learning to crochet. He is a little restricted with heart problems and needs to elevate his feet several times a day. He reads but also wants to do something with his hands. Your blog gives him ideas for the granddaughters.

  7. Hey There!

    We are having a Linky Party here http://ss1.us/a/OI0JG9RY and are looking for crochet projects. I found your crocheted ear warmer on craftgawker and think it is adorable! We are choosing 3 of our favorite projects, and those chosen will get $5 in Blitsy credits. Hopefully we see you at our party! :)

  8. Thank you for the pattern. We live in Nebraska (right about the center of the U.S.) and although we have just entered spring, it still feels very much like winter. My 9 year old daughter is in a running program called Girls on the Run. She will love a new earband for those chilly days they run outside. I taught myself to crochet about 3 years ago so I am always looking for new tutorials and patterns to continue my learning. You have a great website!

  12. When couting your stitches do you count the chain two at the beginning of the row? Also, do you go into the chain two at the end of the row. Thanks!

    1. Hello!
      When crocheting in the "Row" you turn after every row. When crocheting in the "Round", continue working in the round, and only turn your work when specified in any of my patterns.
      Hope this helps!
