The Nifty Nose Warmer!
The Nifty Nose Warmer
One size will fit most, if you have a smaller person to fit just make your ear loops less chains.
With any worsted weight yarn and a G crochet hook
Nose warmer is worked in the round
Leave about a 8 inch tail when starting this project. That ensures you will have enough end to weave in the ear loop properly.
Chain 4, slip stitch into the first chain to form a ring.
Chain 3, Double crochet seven times into ring. Join with slip stitch into top of beginning chain 3.
Chain 3, Double crochet in same stitch as chain 3 started (your join from previous row) and then double crochet into each stitch around. Join with slip stitch into top of the beginning chain 3.
Chain 2, Half double crochet into next stitch. 2 half double crochet into next stitch, 1 half double crochet into next stitch and continue that all the way around. Join with slip stitch into top of beginning chain 2.
Slip stitch over two stitches and chain 50, join into same stitch as starting that chain 50.
This forms your loop to put around the ear.
Slip stitch around nose warmer to the opposite side. If you fold the nose warmer in half you will see exactly where the two sides will be across from eachother. Chain 50 and slip stitch into same stitch as start of chain 50. Slip stitch around to first ear loop and cut yarn and pull through.
Now you have to weave in your ends. What I do to make it look finished off is I take the yarn needle and thread the yarn into the back (inside) of nose warmer and poke it up right where your first chain 50 started, poke it back into where you slip stitched your chain 50 to make the ear loop and weave in your end to the back of the work very well to keep your nose warmer in tact and secure if it gets washed. Your other end was from the beginning up top where you formed the ring. That I do the same thing on the other side where you made your ear loop, I just weave the yarn here and there until I reach the first slip stitch to the chain 50 and go the same thing as the other side.
Wrap the ear loops around your ears and enjoy a warm nifty nose warmer 🙂
