Headbands Keep Ears Warm in Cold Weather

When we had family visiting recently, the teenagers wanted to go outside and play in the snow. We borrowed them warm clothing to wear. While they were out playing, I made a few of these headbands for them to have their own.

A quick crochet project like this is economical, fun, and appreciated by the receiver. They all had no problem putting them on and going back outside the next day.

This ear warmer can be made in an hour or two with just a little yarn. This pattern uses the single crochet and half double crochet stitch to create rows of texture. It is slightly stretchy, yet fits on the head nicely.

Video Tip on Joining the Beginning Chain

When crocheting a headband, it can be tricky to join the long tail of chains to the first crochet stitch. However, by doing the trick I show you in the video below, you will no longer have to worry about twisting the chain. The video is less than two minutes, give it a watch.

This pattern measures approximately 4” high by 18-19” around. This headband should fit an adult head.

Note: using this same pattern, you could make a headband as big or small as you like. Adjust the number of rows or the number of stitches around. To adjust the stitches, since it is worked in even stitches, increase or decrease by 2 stitches.
