I just finished these super cute crochet ear warmers. I know that whomever I decided to give these to as a gift will love them! They are so easy to do. If this is something you would like to give as a Christmas gift, you can easily hook up a few of them before Christmas…I think it is a great and useful gift to give. We are approaching cold weather soon and we will need to keep our little ears warm.
I have a draw full of wool yarn that I purchased from KnitPicks a few years ago that I used to make these lovelies. What’s so neat about crocheting these headbands is that you can make them as wide as you want and you can crochet them with your favorite crochet stitch. All you need to know about the stitch is, if it’s an even or uneven count. Personally I think that the even stitch count is better to work with. On the red ear warmer I used tan headband I used a pebble stitch (small bubble stitch), the stitch is a 4+2 count, meaning that the stitch pattern is a count of 4 and that you will start with second chain from the hook and possibly a chain 2 at the end of each row.
I crocheted these with “wool of the andes” 100% Peruvian Highland Wool from KnitPicks. This headband is started with sc increase stitches
… and ended with sc decrease stitches. The stitch used for this headband warmer is the small bubble stitch: yo insert in st yo, pull through, 3x, to lock the st, sc in next st.
I found this lovely pattern at this very nice website Bhookedcrochet.com
…and if it seems that you just can’t understand the written pattern, she has an amazing video to teach you what you need to know to make this lovely headband.
Let’s get to hooking!
