We went snowmobiling the other day and the day before we left I realized that my girls needed something to keep their ears warm. So..... I whipped a few of these crocheted headbands/earmuffs up for them. I finished the last stitch as we were pulling up to the location. Talk about calling it close!!:)
I was surprised how well they worked and how easy they were to make. I first started out making the headband itself. I stitched 2 sc (single crochets) and then added one to each row until I got the width I liked. I then stayed at that width until it was long enough to go around my daughters ears and then tapered back down to the 2 sc. I added a button at the end of one side to clasp the headband together. After that I found a crochet flower pattern online (There are a lot out there so choose your favorite). Then I added some gathered fabric and a button to add some character and before I new it I had two headbands/earmuffs finished and ready to go.
