Feeling fabulous in fur? This Twisted Fur Ear Warmer and Cowl set is the perfect fur item to accessorize this winter and is sure to keep you toasty warm!
Fur Crochet Cowl & Ear Warmer
The wind in Kansas can be downright disrespectful. Pair that bone-chilling wind with cold winter temperatures and you have no choice but to bundle up before leaving the house. If you have just two skeins of Fable Fur, you can make this super cute Faux Fur Cowl & Ear Warmer set!
If you’ve never worked with fur yarn before, you might take a peek at this post for tips for working with fur yarn before getting started.
The lighter fur colorway is “Kuma” and the darker colorway is called “Lapin”. I love them both! Each skein has 71 yards of fur, so you’ll need one and a half for the cowl. Use the rest of the second skein to whip up the ear warmer. These are so fast to crochet its almost ridiculous.

In row 2, crochet around the beginning yarn tail to avoid having to weave it in later.

For the ear warmer pattern we are going with a tighter stitch, the single crochet. This is sure to keep the wind from bothering sensitive ears.
