SLOTH EAR SAVERS

Updated: 7 days ago



After uploading yesterdays cat ear savers crochet pattern I didn't think I'd be making any more of these ear savers. However, this morning I suddenly had an idea so I immediately grabbed some yarn (forgetting all about the other five projects I have on the go) and got to work. Half an hour later I had this sloth ear saver finished. So I now have a total of four ear saver patterns, all of which can be purchased together here as an ebook on Ravelry.



To make the sloth you're going to need three different colours of yarn - white, beige and brown. I've used DK yarn and a 4mm hook. You can use different weight yarn and the appropriate hook size but you will end up with a smaller or larger ear saver. It's a great way to use up and yarn you have left over from other projects as you'll only need a really small amount.


You can get some really great face masks from Red Bubble. They have so many different designs, if you take a look you'll be able to find some really nice sloth designs to match the ear saver you make! Click here to see.
