Practice your single crochet stitches with this super easy ear warmer! Perfect for beginners, this winter headband is worked in a flat rectangle and joined to create a twisted front detail. Thanks to the join, you won’t have to worry about wiggly newbie edges!

There are 8 sizes from preemie to adult large, but you can easily adjust the length of your chain if you need an additional size.

The pattern features a photo and video tutorial. It’s available for free on my blog:


30-100 yards of Brava worsted (or your favorite worsted weight yarn) - I used Denim and Lady Slipper
J 6.0 mm crochet hook
Tapestry Needle

These headbands are part of a 30-day series for new crocheters. Learn more here:
