No? It’s just me. Isn’t it? COME ON! I know I’m not alone!

I’m sure you’re super busy getting ready for Santa, so let me get right to it!
– Size E (3.25mm) crochet hook
– About 50 yards skintone yarn or whatever color matches your intended use
Fairy Elf Ears (Make 2)
NOTE: Use a bobby pin to mark the LAST stitch made of each round! This is important because this ear is designed to curve a bit and does not follow a standard pattern of increasing and decreasing. I catch just the outer most loop of the stitch so I don’t stretch the stitch of the piece and leave any gaps. We want these ears worked TIGHTLY. MARK THE ROUNDS!
Make a magic circle: Be sure to mark rounds, even one stitch off will alter the shape of the ear and it won’t stand up as nicely.
Do not join or turn rounds, worked in spiral. When stated to repeat: only repeat the instructions in the parenthesis immediately preceding the repeat instructions (here and throughout the pattern this applies)
Rnd 1: 4 sc in ring (4)
Rnd 2: sc in each sc around. (4)
*The above rounds are 1-2 are going to have the tendency to be kinda of hard to work, you can assist by not working too tight for the 1st 2 rounds and not pulling the magic circle closed tightly until you are a little further along. ALSO, they likely will flip inside out, take a second and wiggle that piece so the right side of the stitches are facing out again. The remaining rounds will get easier
Rnd 3: (sc in nxt sc, 2 sc in nxt sc) twice. (6)
Rnd 4: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 5: (sc in nxt 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc) twice. (8)

Rnd 8: sc in each sc around.

Rnd 13: sc in 1st 6, 2 sc in each of the nxt 3, sc in nxt 10, 2 sc in each of the last 3 sc. (28)
Rnd 14: sc in each sc around. (28)
Rnd 15: sc in nxt 7, 2 sc in each of the nxt 4, sc in nxt 11, 2 sc in each of the nxt 4 sc, sc in the last 2. (36)

Rnd 19: sc dec over nxt 2 sc, sc in nxt 5, sc dec over nxt 2 sc, sc in last 21 sc. (28)
Rnd 20: sc in nxt 6 sc, (sc dec over nxt 2 sc) THREE times, sc in last 16. (25)
Rnd 21: sc in nxt 4 sc, (sc dec over nxt 2 sc) THREE times, sc in nxt 10 sts, sc dec over nxt 2 sc, sc in last 3 sc. (21)
Rnd 22: sc in nxt 3 sc, (sc dec over nxt 2 sc) THREE times, sc in last 12 sc. (18)
Rnd 23: (sc in nxt sc, sc dec over nxt 2 sc) SIX times. (12)
Rnd 24: (sc dec over nxt 2 sc) SIX times, sl st to 1st st made, leave long tail to seam opening closed and to secure ear to hat
I think these look best when secured through the bottom inner ear so that all the edges are free, similar to a real ear.
I’ve also blinged them out using some flat back rhinestones and E6000 glue, because my fairy dreams are fancy!
I would really love to see what you ELF! Show me on one of the social media sites linked below!
