‘Tis finally the season, you guys. I feel like I’ve had my Christmas decorations up for months now (since October but, who’s really keeping track?). It’s officially after Thanksgiving now, so I can post Christmas content without scrutiny. 😉
The weather is cooling off and that’s especially rare for Alabama before January.. not kidding. So, I’ve brought back headband ear warmers to the markets and I SOLD OUT of the Wild West Ear Warmers. Be sure to check out the pattern for those if you haven’t already.
This pattern is so simple and very beginner friendly! The pattern is a one-row repeat with one color change. The twist is made by the way you sew the two ends together and though it looks complicated, it is super easy! The pattern is very short and I have included a step-by-step photo where you can see how the end is held to sew the twist.
Worsted weight #4 yarn in red and green
4.25 mm crochet hook
(hdc) half double crochet
***Notes: I chain 1 for my turning chain for hdc though some people chain 2. I think ch 1 looks a bit cleaner for this pattern but you may chain 2 if you prefer.
Color Red. Ch. 17
1.) Hdc in 2nd ch from hook, continue for rest of row. <16>
2.) Ch 1, turn. Make 1 hdc, in each st across. <16>
3-26.) Repeat row #2.
27-52.) Change colors to green. Repeat row #2.
Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Lay both end pieces beside each other overlapping in the middle. Fold one side over the back and the other side over the front making a “c” with both sides. Pictured below.
Weave in ends and turn right side-out.
