About the Aora Twist Crochet Ear Warmer.

Anybody else a recent crochet ear warmer convert? We don’t use ear warmers a lot because of Kenya’s tropical climate but this year has been especially cold. My niece doesn’t like any head gear so I thought I’d make an ear warmer for her instead. (P.S. Much like the Lexie Hexie Blanket, the Aora Ear Warmer is a hit!)

I went for this design because I love ripple textured crochet. It started with my Twist to the Classic Beanie and most recently, the Rustic Twist Pumpkin pattern.  The stitch is easy to work and creates a dense and beautifully textured design.

My childhood inspired this ear warmer’s name. Every time we would visit my grandmother during school holidays, we had to walk 800 meters (about half a mile) to the nearest river to fetch water. I’m sure it has a name but we simply called it Aora which means river or stream in my mother tongue. The ripple design reminds me a lot of the Aora thus the Aora Twist Crochet Ear Warmer was born.

Notes:

  • Read through the pattern before starting your work just to be sure you don’t have any questions that might cause frustration while working on the project.
  • The pattern is worked in BLO- Back Loop Only.
  • Stitch count for each size remains the same throughout the pattern.
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of the round counts as 1 dc.
  • This pattern is written in US terms. For a conversion into UK terms, get my free eBook with the conversion charts here.
  • The pattern is worked flat in rows and then seamed together.
  • Repeating sections within the rows are shown in round () brackets followed by the number of times they are repeated e.g. (Dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) 11 times means the sequence in the brackets must be repeated a total of 11 times.
  • Stitch totals are shown in square [] brackets at the end of each round e.g. [12] means you should have a total of 12 stitches at the end of the round.
  • The pattern uses a lot of different stitches. To avoid confusion, I’ve segmented them into more consumable sentences so as to avoid eye fatigue. If you’ve printed this out, you can also mark the stitches as you make them.
  • The right and wrong sides of the finished flat piece (before seaming) look similar therefore you get to choose which side you want to be your right side.
  • If you want your ear warmer loose for a particular age bracket, you can go up a hook size For instance, if your gauge matches with a 4.5mm hook, use either 5mm or 5.5mm for a bigger ear warmer. If it matches with a 5.5 mm hook, use either a 6mm or 6.5mm hook.
