Chestnut Earwarmers


The Chestnut Ear Warmers are designed to be a simple, yet interesting design which can be made quickly using less than 1 ball of yarn. They feature a stretchy section at the back to ensure a good, comfortable fit, and can be made in 3 sizes: child (suitable from 6 years), small adult and adult. They can also be easily adjusted to make wider/larger. Using a chunky yarn with a small hook gives them a cosy feel and lovely textured stitch definition.
