Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern

Its so so so cold here at the moment, and I suppose having flu symptons is making me even colder, so I grabbed some wool and started to make a quick and easy headband/ear warmer.I thought I'd share the pattern here with you
  • ch70, dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each st along, ch2, turn
  • dc in 1st st and in each st along, ch1, turn
  • sc in nx 10 sts, dc in nx 8 sts, ch1, tbr in nx 31 sts, ch1, dc in nx 8 sts, ch1, sc nx 10 sts
  • ch1, turn
  • ss in nx 10 sts, dc in nx 47 sts incl the 2 ch1 sps you made, total 49 sts, ss in nx 10 sts
  • ch1, turn
  • ss in nx 10 sts, dc in nx 49 sts, ss in nx 10 sts
  • fasten off
  • weave both ends together to make your headband
(ch - chain, dc - double crochet, sc - single crochet, tbr - treble crochet, sts - stitches, sps - space *I use american terms when crocheting* )

Depending on the wool you use depends on the size outcome, also I made this so it was a pretty tight fit as wool does loosen over time, you may need to alter the size slightly by adding more chaings at the beginning depending upon how big or small you do want it, just measure over your ears for the perfect fit.

Please do share if you make one I'd love to see x

omgosh!!! I look soooo tired in that photo, please forgive me it is early in the morning :) x

      I used a size 6 crochet hook but I suppose it depends what wool you are using as well x hope that helps x
