Finishing (all sizes)
Use CB and same hook used for the earwarmer. With right side facing (seam on inside), join yarn with a SC in one of the large “holes” on the side of the headband, work DC in same hole. Work a GR ST into each of these “holes” around, join with SL ST to 1st SC, fasten off.
Repeat on other side.


Other Suggestions...

  • Use variegated yarn for a colorful earwarmer.
  • Add buttons, embroidery, crocheted flowers, patches, or appliqu├ęs to the side of the earwarmer to make it unique.
  • Clip on bows or korkers, too.
  • Try a bulky weight yarn & appropriate hook for a big, chunky earwarmer.
