I’ve been working on a big crochet blanket for the last couple of weeks and wanted to take a break and design something small so I opted for another ear saver! This fox is the fifth of my ear saver patterns and is now a part of the ear saver bundle where you can get all five patterns at a reduced price (click here to view the bundle). Don’t forget you can also get 10% off by subscribing to our newsletter!

This one is just as quick and easy to make as all the others. You’ll need three colours of DK weight yarn – orange, white and black. You could swap the orange yarn for grey and make yourself a wolf instead. You’ll also need a 4mm crochet hook and 2 buttons.

If you like these little ear savers you may be interested my sleep mask patterns which will be released free in the coming weeks but are already available on Ravelry (Click here to view). They are a very similar style to the ear savers and use the same materials.
