Holiday Stashdown 2016-Rockskipper Earwarmer

I have teamed up with several amazing crochet designers to bring you 24 free crochet patterns for the holidays! This fun-filled Holiday Stashdown is also a great stashbuster! Most patterns can be worked up in a skein or less or can use up those scraps that you’ve had laying around wondering what to do with. My second contribution to the Holiday Stashdown CAL is the Rockskipper Earmwarmer.This pattern is super simple to work and is sure to keep you warm when the weather starts to get chilly!
