I know that there are many crochet patterns of ear protectors, but, I hope, I can reach someone who hasn't seen it yet. This is an easy to crochet, but extremely useful face mask ear protector for all essential workers who everyday fight on the front line. Ear Protector will help avoid rushes and relieve the pain behind ears. Let’s make good things together. Make at least one ear protector and donate it to your local hospital or anyone you know who might be in a need. Share this pattern with your crochet friends!
