This ear-warmer headband is perfect for those chilly spring mornings and nippy evenings, giving a little warmth when it is not quite cold enough for a hat but when you need a little something to stay snuggly. Crocheted in winkle picot stitch, using a combination of the chain stitch, double and half-treble crochet it is perfect for a beginner with a few stitches under their belt but would also be a quick project for a more advanced crocheter and would make a fantastic gift.
