Crochet Earmuffs

Fellow tumblr blogger Alyssa from Alyssa2Elodie submitted these beautiful crochet earmuffs she made. I was excited to post this since she lives near my hometown ! They are such a cute and creative take on the traditional earmuffs ! They almost look like you have flowers in hair . I definitely need to start picking up this craft. I would suggest to try this out with neon colors or maybe taking it up a notch with beads. The possiblities are endless!
