I can’t tell you how excited I was when I saw a box from Lion Brand on my porch and realized that my Go For Faux yarns had arrived. This yarn is amazing. It’s so soft and fluffy and the colors are just beautiful (I ordered Blue Bengal, Chinchilla, Baked Alaska and Grey Wolf). These faux fur earmuffs are my first crochet project using this yarn. I was inspired by a pair of earmuffs that Ashley received for Christmas. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it.

Finished Sizes

One Size


The gauge is very hard to count because this yarn is so fluffy. That’s okay though because these designed for one size to fit most. My earmuffs measured about 4 inches across.

Leaving a long tail to work with later, wrap your yarn around one end of the headband.

Use your hot melt adhesive to add some glue (work in small sections, the glue sets quickly).

Tightly wrap your yarn over the section with the hot glue. 

Repeat the process until you get to the other end of the headband. Leave a long yarn tail for sewing.

Use a tapestry needle to attach the yarn tails from the headband to round 5 of the ear covers.
The open side of the ear covers should face inward. 

Make sure the headband is securely attached to the ear covers. 

Lightly stuff the ear covers with poly-fil.

Use a tapestry needle to sew the 6 remaining stitches for each ear cover shut.
