Keep warm in this wide slip on style design. This soft knit look ear warmer is made entirely with single crochet. The knitted texture is created by working each single crochet into the center of the stitch instead of under the top 2 loops of the stitch. Working with a large hook and worsted weight yarn makes learning this technique a snap. The Faux Knit Ear Warmer works up in about an hour and will keep you cozy all winter long.

  5. Please can you tell me what is the equivalent of 'worsted' yarn, it sometimes says 'or aran' but mine quite often then comes out too small! In UK we have dk. aran, chunky and super chunky, is worsted any of them?

  6. What does "guage" mean? Is it a typo for "gauge"? It would make sense. Sorry, english is not my first language.
