Reflective Ear Warmer
You're sure to turn heads this winter when you wear this Reflective Ear Warmer. Red Heart's Reflective yarn is used to work up this free crochet pattern.
This particular yarn is so unique because in normal lighting, it looks like your average worsted weight yarn, but it actually contains a reflective thread which makes it glow when you take a flash photo or when car headlights hit it.
All you need is one skein of each color yarn to work up this crocheted headband.
