With the cold weather, comes my desire to play with yarn. I have a few projects on my needles from last spring, when the urge to knit disappeared, but they are both kind of detailed projects and I wanted something quick to finish to boost my mojo, so I turned to crochet.
here, if you want the technical details (and the free pattern!). It is a combination of single crochet, double crochet and puff stitch, which gives it the slightly nobby texture. I love the sort of ombre stripe effect that happened with the yarn. I totally couldn't have planned that if I'd tried!
The resulting ear warmer is super duper cozy. It'll keep my ears nice and toasty on the playground. I might have to make another to wear with the black half of my wardrobe.
