A Sparkly, Warm, Soft Headband That Warms Your Ears Too!

Headbands designed to warm your ears are so wonderful to pop on anytime you need a bit of extra warmth. And with the vast selection of soft yarns available, I'm sure you can find the perfect one for you! I'm doing mine in Deborah Norville's Premier Jeweltones yarn, which is available in some really beautiful colors! My choice is the "Moonstone" colorway. I fell in love at first sight with this yarn when I encountered it at JoAnn last fall. I made myself a pair of fingerless gloves with it, and this fall I'm going to add a cowl, and if I have time, a mobius scarf. That scarf pattern is available free in my pattern index.

I really hope you will enjoy crocheting lots of these!

A Word About Yarn Selection...

When making article intended to provide warmth, do the "warm" test when selecting your yarn. Just hold the skein of yarn in your hands. In a few seconds, you will either feel a warming effect, or not.
