Ribbon Ear Warmers Free Crochet Pattern

In today’s post I’d like to share with you the Ribbon Ear Warmers Free Crochet Pattern.  It is called Ribbon because the ear warmers design used a version of the Rib Stitch or Waffle Stitch.

This post contains affiliate links.  You can make a purchase using these links that I provide where I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you.)  Purchases you make will help keep my website, Etsy Shop, and my Ravelry Store going and provide quality designs just for you!

You can find my Ribbon Ear Warmers in the Crochet Flower Roundup.  You can find crocheted flowers from 10 other crochet designers on my website.  You will find either free or paid patterns from these 10 designers.  Click on the image below and you will be directed to the Crochet Flower Roundup!

In this pattern you will find left handed video and picture tutorials to go along with this pattern.  I even designed the flower that is attached to my version of my pattern.  I hope you enjoy it!
