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.

Deer hunting season opened today and since our state recently passed legislation allowing Blaze Pink in addition to Blaze Orange, Im predicting this will be a hot seller at our bazaar in a couple of weeks. Our Department of Natural Resources recommends that everyone out in the woods and not just hunters wear the bright colors. I even know local hikers who use vests for their large dogs so theyre not mistaken for deer.

This sounds like an excellent idea to have ear warmers that are reflective so you can be seen at night or early in the mornings if you have to be out and about at those times. Is there a way for us to see a picture or two of the finished project? There is no picture available on this page.

This ear warmer has double purpose - as ear warmer and as headband. This ear warmer will surely make your ears protected from the freezing cold and at the same time hold your hair in place as the cold wind blows. The pattern used to make this Reflective Ear Warmer is appropriately simple and unassuming. The color used will surely make the rather gloomy day bright and glowing.

I made a similar one, but wanted the back section tapered. So I simply decreased where I wanted it under my hair in the back...

Going to make this as soon as I get my yarn!
