There seems to be a never-ending stream of birthday parties for the littles right now. Julianna was the answer to one of those parties last week. These Granny-inspired ear warmers are just too fun! I even added a flower to make them even more cheery and help warm up those cold days!

I’ve added an adult large size to this pattern for woman with larger heads, drag queens, and so it can be worn over the spectacular up-dos I often see worn by African woman. I mean, just because your hair is fabulous doesn’t mean your ears don’t get cold in winter!

25 Comments on Julianna – Free Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern

  1. Hi Jessie! I absolutely love this idea! Is there a way to get this in printed form for an adult size? I tried clicking on the link but all it gave me was pictures. Thank you! Nikki

    • If you click on the link just above my signature (here it is again) it will bring you to the Craftsy listing. If you do not have a Craftsy profile, you will have to sign up, but it is free. From the Craftsy listing you can download the printer friendly version of the pattern. I believe you have to put the pattern in your cart and check out, but the pattern is free.

      • That worked, thank you so much! What size is that pattern for? Do I need to adjust for an adult? Thanks again – football in the snow tonight so this is perfect timing lol.

        • It’s the same pattern as the one here, so child and adult. Just use the second size and you should be good as long as your gauge is good.

          • I’m sorry, I’m not seeing the other sizes. What am I missing? It looks like the child & adult should be in () with the child in bold, but I’m not seeing that, just stitches in (). I feel like an airhead lol.

          • Oh, dear!!! I can’t believe no one has caught this before! I wrote this pattern in the child size, then adjusted it for toddler and adult. It appears as though I published the unsized (child) version. I have fixed it now. Basically, it is now written for the adult size, and it tells you which rows to skip for child and toddler sizes. I am so sorry about that!

          • No worries (at least I’m not crazy – haha!). Thank you so much! Getting ready to leave for the game and I should have just enough time to get it done on the way. Thank you, have a great evening! 🙂

  2. I want to thank you for sharing. You are making my grasnddaughters very happy. You are a very talented person. God bless you.LOVe

  3. Hi Jessie,

    I am in the process if making this beautiful earwarmer and am stuck at row 19. I’m wanting to know if I am still working on the first side of the wrap, or should I move to a different side/corner of the granny square. and if i sm still working on the first dide of the wrap the part in the directions where it says to sc 3 times in Ch sp confuses me because there is no Ch sp.

    Then skipping down to the directions after row 24. “Flip to wrong side, reattach first color”. Is this on a new side/corner of the granny square?

    Thanks so much. I’m really loving the pattern and the way it looks. I’m making mine solid cream and it’s beautiful.

    Jamie

    • Row 19 is still working on the same side of the ear warmers. I fixed the ch sp. Originally I made the corners with a ch, but changed the pattern and I must have missed that one.

      Row 24 is the end of that side of the ear warmers. After that you start the other side of the ear warmers.

  4. So I love your pattern. I’m having trouble though. I’m using caron simply soft. It’s a worsted weight 4. I followed the directions for the adult But it just covered my forehead.

    Help!

    • Caron SS is a light worsted, it is smaller than the Vanna’s choice that I used. That will give you a smaller gauge which will give you a smaller item. You can add more of the chevron stripes to make it longer, or you can use a heavier worsted and/or a larger hook.
