What Is The Best Yarn Weight Of A Winter Ear Warmer?

A medium weight yarn will work well for most people. However, we recommend using a thick yarn such as wool, mohair, or alpaca to give the headband extra warmth.

How Do I Know How Many Stitches To Cast On For My Headband?

You’ll need to decide how big you’d like your headband to be before casting on. Then, count how many rows there are between the cast on row and where you would like the end of the headband to fall

(this is usually about 3 inches). Cast on one more stitch than the number of rows you counted. For example, if you’re counting 10 rows then cast on 11 stitches.

Can I Change The Size Of The Headband After I’ve Started Crocheting?

Yes, you can add or remove rows to adjust the length of the headband, but remember to always start with an odd number of stitches when changing sizes.

If you want to increase the width of the headband, simply add rows until you reach the desired width.

Is It Possible To Crochet A Headband Without Having To Join The Ends?

Yes, you don’t have to join the ends of your headband, but you may find it easier to keep track of them if you do.

To avoid joining, just leave long tails at the beginning and end of every round. You can simply crochet a

long rectangle and then stitch the two ends of the rectangle together to create a loop. You can disguise the seam with a decorative bow or flower.

Final Thoughts

Crocheting a headband/ear warmer isn’t difficult, but it does require some practice and patience. Remember to take your time and enjoy yourself while learning new skills.

Don’t worry too much about getting everything perfect the first time around, as mistakes are part of the process. Just keep practicing and you’ll soon master this technique.
