This is my third time participating in the Holiday Stashdown #CALCentralCrochet. I just love being able to go through yarn in my stash, and get some holiday gifts done up. This year there are 16 free crochet patterns being shared, and a great giveaway. Visit my Time for the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2017 page on the EyeLoveKnots blog for more information!

This year, I wanted to change up my design. In previous stashdown’s I worked up cowls, but this year, I wanted to make something I could actually wear here in Florida when it gets cold out. Typically, it’s only cold out in the mornings and evenings, and hot during the day - too hot really for a cowl. This earwarmer is easy to stash in a purse or even pocket of large jacket when it gets too warm out, or going inside.
