Ear Protectors- FREE CROCHET PATTERN.

In April 2020 we were in full lockdown in the UK, I had my 2 children at home full time as schools were closed. Juggling housework, crochet orders and full time home schooling, plus trying to keep the kids from being too worried , was a struggle for a while until we kind of got used to it. During this time I made this pattern for Ear-savers. It is a simple pattern for attaching face masks at the back of the head instead of behind the ears (long use of masks can rub behind the ears). I shared the pattern out for free and also made a whole load of them to give out to essential workers for free.

Hi, Welcome to MyBelle Creations. I taught myself to crochet around 5 years ago and really enjoyed it. Over the years I have made many different types of items, my favourites being my ‘geeky’ items such as the Labyrinth movie characters and Dungeons and dragons items. I have enjoyed making and sharing my patterns and finished items. Since my children have gone back to school full time, from being home school during the covid-19 lockdowns, I have decided to start a new way of sharing my patterns and items.
