This quick free ear warmer crochet pattern is part of 24 Days of Quickies with Marly Bird & Friends! Marly has put together this fun blog hop full of patterns by tremendously talented designers that can be completed in one day. The Gatsby Ear Warmer fits the bill.

This fun textured ear warmer can easily be customized to fit anyone, instructions included. Easily made, the Gatsby Ear Warmer is worked with a unique combination of stitches worked in two directions. Cinch at the center for that Great Gatsby era look. Not only does this design work up quickly but you can make two from each skein of Colorscape. You can also substitute any yarn and hook to change up the look of the finished design.
