Let's Crochet A Quick & Easy Earwarmer Headband That Sparkles!
Everybody Needs To Keep Their Ears Warm!
Why not look adorable why you're keeping those ears warm! I've designed this easy little headband done in ribbing that even beginners can crochet! If you've always wanted to learn to crochet, this would be an easy project to start with too! I've included some neat tutorials on YouTube to learn with!
The yarn, I think, is very special! It is Deborah Norville's Premier Jeweltones in the colorway, Moonstone. It's delightful with shades of gray ranging to white. There are tiny little sequins (which aren't sharp!) all sprinkled throughout. Love this yarn! It's available in several other gemmy colors. You could, of course, crochet it in any worsted weight yarn you wish as well.
Hope you enjoy crocheting it! Wouldn't this be a neat idea for the holiday gifts on your list?
What You Will Need
Less than 1 Skein Premier Jeweltones Yarn in "Moonstone"
Crochet Hook Size H or preferred size
How To Make It
I make my wearable items to custom fit you, so my directions may seem a bit different in places. Don't be alarmed!
Make a starting chain the circumference you want your headband to be, MINUS four inches, without stretching the chain at all. (Sometimes it works best to compare size to a known-fitting item you already have; in this case, another headband).
SC in each chain across. Ch 1, turn.
SC in back loop only of each SC across. Ch 1, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until headband is the desired width you want. When you get to that point, ch 1 and turn work clockwise - we will now be workingon the ends of the headband, gradually making each end a bit narrower,then joining them together.
End Row 1
Work 1 SC in each row evenly across end. Ch 1, turn.
End Row 2
SC ini first SC. *Work a decrease over next 2 SC. (Draw up a loop in first stitch, draw up a loop in next stitch, yarn over and draw through all loops). SC in next SC. Repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn.
End Rows 3 & 4
Repeat Row 2
Fasten off. Repeat end rows on opposite end of headband. Pin or clip the ends together and check headband for proper fit, adjust as needed. Slip stitch ends together. Fasten off, weave in ends.
