Hello Craftees! Are you up for more cosy crochet projects? Then you have got to crochet this Easy Bean Stitch Earwarmer; it is indeed so warm and super simple to make.
I have named this bean stitch earwarmer Bean Love Earwarmer, just because. This is my first major design using the crochet bean stitch ( which I quite like) so I think it is right for me to name it that. What do you think?
I’ve got to say headbands and earwarmers are my thing. I remember in my early days of croceting and blogging I designed a lot of headbands and earwarmers; overtime though my interests have veered toward larger projects.
I live in a mostly warm climate, with a little coolness during the winter months. However, winter 2022/23 has been quite cold in my part of the world; which makes for a good excuse to crochet an earwarmer as I have been wanting to.
This earwarmer pattern is super simple; I intentionally designed it so; as a mini project to explore the crochet bean stitch. It is one of many project I intend to design using the crochet bean stitch pattern.
It is also such a lovely gift to make for friends, aquitances and charities. Imagine how warm the recipient would be wearing this bean stitch earwarmer; with its tight and puffy stitching you can be sure it will keep the ears and head quite warm.
Due to its puffy texture, there are important things to consider while working with the stitch. I mention all these in the tutorial.
