These unique crochet upcycled earwarmers are made of mixed wool and soft acrylic yarns, the violet one is recycled. The multicolor pastel hearts have magenta-peach-pink circle centers bordered with cute violet for the contrast, all crocheted around the pale pink plush base I've found in a second hand shop.

I designed the delicate heart shape inspired by Bunny Mummy's Sunburst Granny Hearts and in the following months I will abuse of it! XD I LOVE crocheting hearts!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Have you worn them? Do they cover your ear or are they more for the pretties?

Very interesting.

Yes, I tried them on and they are perfectly wearable, soft and warm!  Wink

I don't write patterns, just build up everything as I go. I was inspired by Bunny Mummy's hearts: http://bunnymummy-jacquie.blogspot.hu/2012/06/sunburst-granny-hearts.html! It's an awesome free tutorial.  Kiss

Thank You both phnxreign99 and yoopidou!  Grin
