Crocheted Headband Ear-warmers

I like to have some handwork to do in the evenings, while watching TV.  Something that I don't have to concentrate on, but that keeps my hands busy.  Ann at EverythingSewing has been crocheting these cute little headband/ear-warmers.  I found the pattern link on her site, and have made a couple of them.

There's a flower, sewn on to the side/front, with a rhinestone button in the center.  The headband is about 5" wide in the center, tapering on each end toward the back, and it's fastened together at the back with a button and buttonhole.


This one is wrapped around a bowl,  because I don't have a head form.  The pattern is here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/AllYourStories   It's made with worsted weight yarn.  I put a strand of silver metallic thread in with the yarn so it has some sparkle.  Quick to make--I can crochet one in an evening.  Ann has made about 35 of these recently, sold them all, and I think has orders for more.  Evidently, they are very popular in Canada.

OK, my kitchen floor is dry and I'll get back to boring housework.

That is really cute! I love it. Are you planning on selling any? Are you Ravelry? One day I'm going to teach myself how to crochet. I can do a basic chain stitch (I had to learn that to do a provisional cast-on for some knitting projects). One day...

Super cute, Gwen! I loved seeing your jacket in this month's Threads magazine, by the way! Very, very cool!

No wonder they are popular in Canada. Here in Hfx today, we have a windchill factor of -18 Celsius, which is -0.4 Fahrenheit. Pretty cold!

Cennetta said...

Very cute. I like to do handwork while watching TV too. Today I saw your beautiful jacket in the Threads Reader's Closet. Congratulations.

Quite cute! I, too, often knit/crochet in the evenings while watching/listening to TV. That's when I get my community service chemo caps done generally. I have something to do and the chemo patients can have a new cap!

Corrine said...

Reading my mind you are. I saw these as well and actually have started one. They are really cute!

Karin said...

Super cute! I like to have some knitting to do in front of the tv at night myself, too.

Patty said...

Very pretty....and useful with the cold Michigan winter we are having!

Bunny said...

Very cute, Gwen!

Jean said...

Very pretty! I've seen a lot of these kinds of headbands in stores lately -- cute accessories. I like your idea of adding a strand of metallic thread to a base yarn -- I'll need to try that technique for other projects.

That is adorable! I always wear full hats, but keep thinking I should try to make an ear warmer like that (fabric, not yarn--no yarn crafts for me, as I don't need another hobby!).

First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick
question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my
thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!
