Sleek and Skinny Ear Warmer/ Headband


Lorene Eppolite


This ear warmer was designed to be slim and slender to the wearer. It has some architectural appeal created by the alternating stitches of dc, puff stitch and sc. This particular pattern is written in adult but is adjustable to two different sizes.

The Sleek and Skinny Ear Warmer/ Headband pattern was originally featured in the April Issue of Inspired Crochet Magazine.  The matching Sleek and Skinny Cowl will be featured in the September 2013 1 year Anniversary issue of Inspired Crochet.

Finished ear warmer is adjustable, but how adjustable will depend on the placement of the button to secure. You may want to size it to your head before you secure the buttonin place.

-One side of this headband will be less stitches than the other side, this is achieved by dec2tog at specific points in the pattern. This ensures that the headband will be straight and will not curve to one side when completed.
-Stitch counts for each row will be placed inside brackets (<>)
-As with every pattern I recommend that you read each step in its entirety before beginning that row
-All important points to consider while making this pattern will have an arrow up (^) in front of them
