I know some of you in the health field that need to wear masks for long periods of time. This will be great to make for your ears. If you do not work in the health field, you can give it as a gift since is quick and easy to make.
Materials you will need:
- 100% cotton yarn. For the video I used this one and you can also use this one .
- Crochet hook. The label suggests the recommended size for the yarn. Since I tend to crochet a bit lose, I go for a smaller size hook.
- Needle yarn
- Stitch marker
Sl st: slip stitch
Hdc: half double crochet
Sc: single crochet
Hdc in second ch from hook, hdc in each ch across
Make 5 hdc in the last chain, make 1 hdc in the next st and each st across
