Cheyenne Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern
Updated: Jan 11
Welcome to the Cheyenne Ear Warmer crochet pattern! This ear warmer pattern makes for the perfect wintertime project or gift. The pattern below works up quickly– I just made three
in about an hour.
It's the middle of summer, so why am I making crochet ear warmers? Well, I moved into a new place not that long ago and in my office I have a pretty big walk in closet. For the last few months that closet has been the place I shove and hide things that I don't have a place for yet. I had been dreading cleaning and organizing that space, but just a couple of days ago I worked up the courage.
My closet looks great now! I discovered so many different types of yarn that I purchased I don't know how long ago and never did anything with. The yarn I used for this pattern is one of those.
I saw this yarn and I remembered when I picked it out– I wanted to make a blanket or maybe a beanie with it. As I was looking at it earlier today though, I thought it would make an even better ear warmer. The fuzziness of the light brown and white strands, the fluffiness of the dark brown strands, doesn't that sound so perfect?
Anyways, don't just take my word for it, the next time you go out for one of your yarn hauls, be sure to take a peek for this warm, fluffy, fuzzy yarn.
The pattern itself is easy to follow and like I mentioned, works up super fast. The assembly at the end can be a little confusing so I've included a video tutorial.

The yarn I used for this pattern is Yarnspirations BERNAT Casa yarn in Tawny Brown. This yarn is a size 6, super bulky yarn. If you cannot find this yarn or would like to use a different yarn, any size 6 yarn will work great.
This pattern is worked in rows, creating a rectangle, and the twist is formed at the end during assembly. I've included a video tutorial for the assembly portion of this crochet pattern.
Row 1: ch 41 and sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc across, ch 1, turn (40)
Row 2: sc in each st across, ch 1, turn (40)
Row 3 - 11: rep row 2
Once you get to the end of row 11, trim your yarn and follow the video tutorial below for assembly. Written instructions are below the video.
Assembly (Written Instructions)
Trim your yarn and leave a tail of about 10 inches, you will be using this tail to tie the twist part together. Next, fold your ear warmer horizontally (long ways– think 'hotdog style'). Bring the sides up towards each other and interlock the folds together. Sew together, tie off, and weave in your ends.
And that's it! If you have any issues with this pattern or have any questions, drop a comment below 🙂
