Check out these adorable Earwarmer Headbands!
I got the idea for these from Maria’s Blue Crayon. It caught my attention on Pinterest and I figured I would give it a shot. I changed the pattern as necessary to fit my needs and they turned out way cuter than I expected. Plus, they are just in time for Football season!
The pattern itself was pretty basic – a chain of 70 slip stitched together to form the round. I did 10 rounds of half-double crochets and TADA – I had my base. The cinching part of the ear warmers was also pretty simple. Maria’s Blue Crayon linked to Little Monkey’s Crochet for instructions on cinching. Then I just had to tie in my ends and they were complete. I think it took me about an hour for one of these. But that included breaks to look at Facebook and the distractions of my dogs, husband and the TV. I think I could get them done quicker if I was totally focused – but when does that actually happen?
I completed the dark grey earwarmer headband first, and I was pleased with it. But the red one blows me away. You can really see the stitches and the details. I am in love with this pattern and it could be done in ANY color which is always a plus.
