Shaped Rib Headband/ Ear Warmer (knit-like) - Free Crochet Pattern

This stretchy crochet ear warmer/ headband has a great knit-look ribbed texture, reminding of a “knit 1, purl 1” knit ribbing (and stockinette stitch in the middle).

The headband is shaped with smaller stitches to make it narrower at the back, so you don’t have all the bulk at the back.

This way it will look perfect in any situation: wearing it over your hair, under your hair at the back, with a messy bun or with a ponytail.

If you like, you can add an embellishment at the front, as seen in the picture below. I really like the rhinestone button on the beige headband, but a leather tag label would also look great.

SIZE

This headband pattern is available in 2 sizes: preteen and teen - adult women
Preteen: Headband measures unstretched approx. 19 inches around and is 4 inches (10 cm) wide
Teen - Adult woman : Headband measures unstretched 20 inches around and is 4.3 inches (11 cm) wide.

The piece has a lot of stretch. You can easily adjust the size of the headband by working more or less stitches and rounds as in the pattern indicated.

GAUGE

13 sts and 14 rounds (unstretched) = 4 inches x 4 inches (10 x 10 cm)
Stitch for gauge: yarn over slip stitch worked in back loops only (yo-slst-blo)!

SUPPLIES

  • 35 g of Red Heart Super Saver yarn ( yarn weight: Medium 4).
    I have used color Buff (for the beige one) and Caffe Latte for the braun earwarmer.
  • 5.5 mm crochet hook (shown here my Furls Wooden Hook, Cocobolo)
  • yarn needle
  • stitch markers or yarn in other color (optional)
  • scissors
  • optional: a pretty rhinestone button or leather tag

STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS)

- ch: chain
- back bump of chains. Click here for my tutorial.
- slst : slip stitch
- slst blo: slip stitch back loop only
- st: stitch

Special Stitches:

  1. Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst): Yarn over (yo) and insert the hook into indicated st; yarn over and draw the yarn through.
    (You have now 3 loops on the hook).
    Having the 3 loops on hook, pull/slip the first loop on hook through the next 2 loops on hook to complete a Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst).
  2. Click here for my TUTORIAL!
  3. Yarn over slip stitch back loops only (yo-slst-blo): work the stitch as described above, but inserting the hook only into the back loops of the stitches.

NOTES

  1. the ch1 at the beginning of the rows will not count as a st
  2. Always count your stitches! Be careful not to lose the sts at the end of the rounds! You might like to use sts markers into first st and last st of the rounds!
  3. The ear warmer is worked in the round, but turning after joining with slip stitch into round! ! After each round you will change the direction of the work!
  4. The stitch pattern is reversible, you can choose either side as the right side.
