The Arrow Ear Warmer is a cozy, unisex accessory overloaded with texture. Simple "arrows" cover every inch, making it modern and beautiful from every angle! And since it's created with bulky weight yarn, it works up crazy fast and is super-duper squishy. Not to mention, it doesn't use very much yarn, so it's a perfect stash busting project.
And if you're nervous about the front post stitches, don't be. The pattern offers easy to follow row by row instructions, a stitch chart, and a video tutorial!
It's worked in rows until the desired length is reached. Then, the first and last row are seamed together.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED

NOTIONS: tape measure, threading needle, scissors
BEHIND THE DESIGN
Back in 2018, I made the Cablework Blanket (pattern by Yarnspirations). It was filled with intricate cables and created texture I had never seen before. And, guys, that was it! I became obsessed with surface stitches and that year, I went on to design the Arrow Ear Warmer, Dayracer Tank, Breckenridge Jumper, Daydreamer Tank, and Cablework Crop.
So, what are you waiting for?! Grab some of some of that squishy yarn in your stash and start makin'!
