So I just HAVE to tell you about the most amazing toast ever. (Keep scrolling to go straight to the free pattern). I first devoured this combination of yummy ingredients at Frutta Bowls in Winter Park, Florida. The make it just right, but if you can’t travel I still want you to enjoy this treat, keep reading for the recipe. And also, excuse me while I shove deliciousness in my face during this earwarmer photo-shoot; it’s all in the name of good food. 

This is an easy way to please guests with such minimal effort. We did a toast bar for my sister’s bridal shower and this won over the avocado toast! So here are the simple steps to making this must-have toast.

What you need to create this:

Toaster, Bread, Spreadable Brie, Fig Jam or Preserves, Basil (fresh is best, but dry is good too).

Step 1: 
Make Toast (easy, I know)

Step 2:
Spread the brie onto the toast. 

Step 3:
Spread fig jam over brie.

Step 4:
Sprinkle with basil leaves. 

Step 5:
Take a moment to look at the pretty piece of toast
(Totally Instagram-able)

Step 6:
Devour toast and enjoy! 

Traveling Vine Earwarmer Crochet Pattern

This is an Infinity Crochet Pattern. To learn more about Infinity Crochet Cables please visit HERE. 

The vine earwarmer is a first-ever seen of its kind. Just like the many species of newly discovered plants, we can discover new ways to transform our yarn. While I’m still working on my green thumb as an aspiring gardener, for now, I find the vines in crochet are longer lasting. 

Supplies:

• Crochet Hook 5.0 mm (H), I highly recommend Furls Hook (affiliate link) or a Tulip Rose Crochet Hook (link below). I love both of these.
• Yarn Needle
• Scissors
• Ribbon or leather strip detail

Yarn:
DK Weight 3 Yarn
• Yarn Bee Must Be Merino in colorway Olive

Yardage:
• Approx. 175 Yards [160 meters]

If gauge is met, other yarns of the same weight can be substituted:
Plymouth Yarn DK Merino
Lion Brand Heartland
Red Heart Baby Hugs Light

Many of the supplies can be found at the affiliate links below:

Gauge:
• 16 sts and 20 rows = 4” (10 cm)
In Single Crochet

Measurements:
• Width: Adult size, brim stretches to fit 19-23″ heads (48-58 cm)
Height: 4 inches (10 cm)

Abbreviations:
• CC- Closing Curve
• ch – chain
• FF3DC- Front Float 3 Double Crochet
• FF3TR- Front Float 3 Treble Crochet
• OC- Opening Curve
• RC – Right Cross
• RS – right side
• sc – single crochet
• sk3fs- Skip 3 Floating Stitches
• WS – wrong side

Skill Level:
• Intermediate

Notes:

• Helpful Video of Traveling Vine Cables and joining the ear-warmer can be found below.
• The ear warmer is worked lengthwise and then hand seamed and cinched.
• Ch 1 at the beginning of rows does not count as a stitch.
• Some rounds will increase in stitch count due to floating stitches and then decrease again on the next round.
• If the cables pull in too much and the fabric does not lay flat, simply add one yarn over to each floating stitch.
• If the cables are too loose, take away one yarn over from each floating stitch.
• Cleaner cables are achieved by working the post stitch into (through) post stitches by grabbing two strands of the stitch instead of working around the entire stitch.
