Shop NewsThree earwarners in variegated yarn Top - pink and gold with garter edges and a gold crocheted flower, middle - purple and pink with blue picot edge and a teal crocheted flower, botom, brown, sage green, and cream with a pearl-beaded edge and orange crocheted flower

Featured Yarn & Pattern
These ear warmers will work up super fast for holiday gift giving. The Bella Earwarmers by Mimi Kezer (Rav link) feature a provisional cast-on (don't worry - it's not hard!) and three different edge options. Finish off with a crocheted flower, or leave the flower off for a less girly option. Pattern is $6 in-store or on Ravelry.

Each ear-warmer uses about half a ball of Noro Silk Garden (worsted weight 45% Silk/45% Mohair/10% Wool) for luxurious softness and amazing colors.

If you lose track of your row really easily, you can keep track the old fashioned way - with pencil and paper. Write down the row number before you start it, then cross it off when you finish it. This way you always know what row you're on!
