I bet you didn’t know you needed crochet ear savers until recently, did you? You’ve probably never even heard of them.
When you have to wear a mask all day, they can become very uncomfortable and can actually make your ears hurt. Imagine feeling that elastic band behind your ears hour after hour, day after day.
That’s where ear savers come in. Crochet ear savers work by relieving the pain and pressure the elastic straps create behind your ears.
The good thing about crochet ear savers is that they’re so easy to make. That means not only can you quickly create them for yourself, but you can also easily create ear savers for friends and family too.
