HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Alas, today’s new pattern has nothing to do with Halloween, unless you make one today so you can wear it while you take your costumed littles out for trick-or-treating… that would look cute and I’d love to see pictures if you do. I just wanted to greet everyone accordingly because today is my favorite holiday. 😀
I’ve got Winter on the brain, though. I haven’t had to turn up the heater in my house yet but it’s just about that time – the nights are dropping to chilly weather and the mornings are just about frosty. This week’s design came about because I really loved making last week’s Snowflake Earwarmer that I wanted to make ANOTHER earwarmer design. I hope you don’t mind having earwarmer/ headband choices. I mean, I don’t, so I hope you don’t either. 😀
I also used a bulky yarn for this design – I just love the way it works up and how cozy it feels when I’m wearing it. 😀

You can also purchase an ad-free pdf in my Ravlery shop for $.50 for this pattern. It helps me keep making patterns week after week.


Materials

  • US K (6.50 mm) crochet hook
  • US J (6.00 mm) crochet hook (optional)
  • Bulky yarn/ size #5 yarn
  • Tapestry/ Yarn needle

Gauge

  • 12 scs BLO x 12 rows = 4″

Terms/ stitches used

Notes

  • This earwarmer is worked in the round, with a slip st at the end of the row into the first stitch of that same row, in 2 sections – the main body and then the edging (on both edges).
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Following the first row, sc into the back loop only. At the end of the row, slip st into both loops of your 1st st, this will help to keep your seam straight.
  • Every stitch in the main body of this pattern is a single crochet. The directions for the graphing rows will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is the gray and color B is the cream. I used Loops and Threads Charisma Tweed for this headband for size 22″, color A in gray measured 1 oz/  31 yds and color B in off white measured .7 oz/ 19 yds.
  • You can replace the first row with a foundation single crochet row if you would prefer.

Ch 55 (60, 65), slip st to form a ring. DO NOT TWIST THIS RING. Ch 1, sc into each st around, slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)

– Graphing-

  • The following rows are worked into the back loop only.
  • Every stitch in the sides portion of this pattern is a single crochet. The following directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many stitches to make.
  • Following the ch 1, the first st is worked into the same st as join.

Row 2: A: Ch 1, (2 [2, 2]), B: (1 [1, 1]), *A: (4, [4, 4]), B: (1 [1, 1]),* repeat from * to * 9 (10, 11) more times, B: (2 [2, 2]), slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)
Row 3: A: Ch 1, (1 [1, 1]), B: (3 [3, 3]), *A: (2, [2, 2]), B: (3 [3, 3]),* repeat from * to * 9 (10, 11) more times, B: (1 [1, 1]), slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)
Row 4: B: Ch 1, (55 [60, 65]), slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)
Row 5: A: Ch 1, (1 [1, 1]), B: (3 [3, 3]), *A: (2, [2, 2]), B: (3 [3, 3]),* repeat from * to * 9 (10, 11) more times, B: (1 [1, 1]), slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)
Row 6: A: Ch 1, (2 [2, 2]), B: (1 [1, 1]), *A: (4, [4, 4]), B: (1 [1, 1]),* repeat from * to * 9 (10, 11) more times, B: (2 [2, 2]), slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)
Fasten off color B. (You could carry the yarn up to row 8, if you want, but it won’t look as neat on the inside.)
Row 7: A: Ch 1, (55 [60, 65]), slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65)
Fasten off color A, weave in your ends.

– Border –

With K (6.50 mm) hook:
Note:
you can go down to a J (6.00 mm) hook here, if you want a bit snugger fit around the band. That’s a preference thing (what I did) but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
Row 8: B: Ch 1, Rsc into the next 55 (60, 65) sts, slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65) rscs
Row 9: B: Flip the whole earwarmer around and create a slip knot on your hook with color B. Slip st into the stitch right next to the seam, Rsc into the next 55 (60, 65) sts, slip st into the first st – 55 (60, 65) rscs
Fasten off, weave in your ends.

 

Tada, there it is! I hope you like this lovely, squishy, yarn and try out an earwarmer with it. 😀
