Yesterday at 7:10: "Ummm, I think I will try making earwarmers. . ."
7:25:"Hey these look okay! I will wear them to the broomball game."
7:27: "I am going to look so ladylike and demure at the game, in my cute li'l earwarmers!"
7:30: "Yaaaaaay team! Go for the jugular! Play for blood! Rrrrrip their throats oooouuuuuutttt!!!!"

I kid you not.

ps This is a great picture of me. I especially like the red eye.

I used a K hook and Red Heart yarn (so cheap!) in med thyme. Oh, and I had it doubled over, you know? I was working with a double strand of the same yarn. OH- and a tapestry needle (but you can make these without one)

 Pattern!CH=chain SC=single crochet Rnd=round ST=stich  Do the whole thing with a double strand of yarn- unless you don't want to.
First, chain 3 and join into a ring (that was round one).
Rnd 2: SC in first CH, CH 1, SC in second CH, CH 1, SC in third CH, CH 1-- you have just doubled the size of your piece- from 3 sts to 6!
Rnd 3: Double the size again in the same way (SC, CH, SC, CH. . .) so you now have a 12 st round.
Rnd 4: Increase your 12 sts to 24 in the same way.
Now: SC for 12 sts (halfway around the circle) then CH 22 sts. SC back along the chain (21 sts, I think) til you get back to the circle, then continue SC along the circle (like 12 more sts), then CH  30 and fasten off.

Half done! Now make another piece, following the pattern (assuming I wrote it correctly). Use your tapestry needle (or crochet hook)  and a piece of the yarn to sew together the thick 21 CH arms. This seam goes over/across your head and the 30 CH tails tie under your hair.

I need to improve the tails, I think, to make them a little more secure. They are okay but not perfect.
I have thought of a couple of variations such as, stringing a ribbon through the whole thing so the ends dangle out the ends of the tails, or making some flowers to go on the ears. A butterfly on top? I like the fleece idea- is chilly Vermont a lot like freezing Upper Peninsula Michigan? That is where I live.

OMG those are so cute. With a little bit of fleece lining those would work perfect in chilly Vermont. Please post some instructions!!!! Awesome job.
