Children’s Crossroads Ear Warmer

As promised, I am continuing to crank out these Crossroads pattern releases this month. It’s the children’s turn this time around. I have written the Crossroads Ear Warmer with children’s head sizes in mind, from toddler to teen with instructions on customizing to fit in between sizes too!

I am sharing the teen sized Crossroads Ear Warmer with you for free here on my blog. You can find my photo tutorial for the link stitch here and joining the link stitch here to help you as you try your hand at the ear warmer pattern. If you prefer having all the size options and tutorials at your fingertips, I have included both photo tutorials and sizes Toddler, Small Child, Medium Child and Teen in the paid pattern pdf for the Crossroads Ear Warmer in my Ravelry store! Enjoy!
