4 Round Crochet Earbud Taco

Crochet Earbud Taco Pattern & Tutorial by Vickie Howell for Ask Me Monday

Crochet Earbud Taco

This month marks the 4 year anniversary for my Facebook Live series, Ask Me Monday! To celebrate, we’re giving away two sets of 4, great prizes (watch video for details), and I’m showing how to make a 4″ and four-round project: a Crochet Earbud Taco. 

This project is made using a series of double crochets and chain spaces to create the body of the cord keeper, then lined with felt for a pop of color (and stability.) It’s quick, easy and a great little back-to-school gift for that kiddo off to their next adventure. Enjoy!
