    It has been a crazy couple of weeks!  It’s been so busy with the 30 Days of Cozy promotion going on and right in the middle of the promotion, my husband had a business trip to Halifax and I’ve been alone with both kids.   I’ve also been working away on a few new patterns for you as well so stay tuned!  This week’s free crochet pattern is Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves.

    My awesome husband brought me back this beautiful yarn from his trip.  It’s made by the Mineville Wool Project which is a local Halifax yarn dyer.  I’m so lucky that he supports my crazy yarn addiction.  I can’t wait to get my hooks into these babies.  If you have any suggestions on what I should make with this yarn, leave me a comment below.  I’m having a hard time deciding!

    I must confess: I lose A LOT of gloves.  I’m almost on par with my little one who loses mittens almost as fast as I can make and buy them.  I must also confess that I am a little particular when it comes to my gloves.  I don’t like the tops of the gloves to be too long because they can sometimes stretch out and look sloppy.  My preference is fingerless gloves so I can zip up zippers, tie up shoes and text with ease.

    So Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves were born out of my need for a cute and quick pair of fingerless gloves.  They are super quick to make so you can replace those lost gloves in a flash but you don’t have to substitute your cuteness factor.  This is also a beginner friendly pattern.  If you sell your crochet, these are great since you can make a pair in well under an hour.  The pattern is easily adaptable so if you need/want the tops or bottoms to be a bit longer, just add a few rows.  So without further ado, let’s get to that pattern!

    I sometimes struggle trying to come up with a name for my patterns so I enlisted the help of my family to come up with something for this guy.  We had a lot of fun trying to come up with something fun and punny.  Since Saint Prickolaus wears a Santa hat and Saint Nickolaus is another name for Santa, we decided to go with Saint Prickolaus!

    Tiny Pebbles Ear Warmer Free Crochet Pattern

    Tiny Pebbles Ear Warmer - Free Crochet Pattern. Beginner-Friendly! Available from The Loopy Lamb blog.

    This post may contain affiliate links.
    This is an unsponsored post and the thoughts/opinions are all my own.

    If you’re familiar with some of the patterns I’ve already released on the blog, you may have noticed that I LOVE texture. I am always looking to try to apply new and different textures to projects to see what I come up with. This week’s free crochet pattern is no exception. My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer pattern is beginner-friendly and works up in a flash.

    If you can do single crochet and a triple/treble crochet, you can make this ear warmer. Alternating the single and triple/treble crochets, it creates this lovely little pebbly-looking texture. To finish the ear warmer off, I use a length of yarn to wrap around the seam which hides it and gives the ear warmer a seamless look.

    Crochet ear warmers make a great stocking stuffer or gift. Because it works up quickly, you can whip up a bunch fast if you’re inclined to sell your finished items at craft sales. I personally love them for being able to stuff them in my pocket or purse so I can keep my ears warm when it’s windy or cool but I’m not feeling like rocking a hat. My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer satisfies my love of texture and my need for something cute that can be stuffed in my pocket when I’m done with it. That’s a win in my books.

    Tiny Pebbles Ear Warmer Free Crochet Pattern - Available from The Loopy Lamb Blog. A great project for beginners !

    Finishing the Ear Warmer
    Slip stitch or sew the two sides together to form a band and leave a long tail of yarn approximately 12 to 14” long. Squeeze the top and bottom of the ear warmer together and wrap the long tail of yarn around the seam approximately 6 to 8 times or until you get the look you want. Secure the yarn and weave in your ends.

    Want to adjust the size? Chain an even number of stitches to your desired length. That’s it! Super easy, right?
