12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers

DAY 5



It is Day 5 and for today's project I made a headband or ear warmer. Quicker than making a whole hat but still great for staying warm in winter weather, this makes a great stocking stuffer. 

I based this pattern on my most popular hat pattern, the Bead Stitch Hat. It uses the same 2 main stitches as the hat (I also have a child size hat pattern and a cowl pattern), the bead stitch, and the half double crochet in the third loop. 


The half double crochet rows give it an almost knit look, and the bead stitch adds a nice texture, plus it is not a stitch I have seen used often and it is always fun to learn a new stitch.


I have video tutorials for both stitches in case there is any part of it that is a little confusing in the written pattern.

Instructions:


Stitch pattern requires a multiple of 2, if you would like to make your headband larger or smaller you will need to add or subtract a multiple of 2 from your starting chain.


Special Stitches:

hdc in 3rd loop: work the hdc in the loop/bar behind the top of the stitch that you normally work into

bead stitch: the bead stitch is basically a puff stitch worked around the post of the dc next to it-
