A free version of this pattern can be found on my blog and a video tutorial is also avaialable on my YouTube Channel.

The ear pads themselves measure about 5cm in diameter without the cushion. They are also an exact circle which makes the pattern really easy and the pattern also goes through how to make them larger to fit the size that you have.

What you will need:
Yarn:  In total, approx 10 gram / 17 yards / 16 meters of worsted weight yarn. I used Paintbox Recycled Cotton Worsted in Honey (Colour A) and Steel Blue (Colour B). See below for other sustainable yarn suggestions.

Hook: Metric: 4.5mm | UK & Canada: 7 | US: G-7 | Japan: 7.5/0
Scissors: For cutting the ends.
Stitch Marker
Elastic Band (optional)

Other Yarn Recommendations
Here are some yarn alternatives that I think would work really well.

4 single crochet (U.K. double crochet) and 5 rows = 2.5cm (1”)

The pattern is written in English and you will receive one PDF containing two patterns, one with U.S. crochet terms and one with U.K. terms. They include plenty of progress photos to help you on your way.
