Easy Textured Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern

December 21, 2017

This easy crunch stitch makes a beautifully textured headband. This Easy Textured Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern is just wide enough to keep those ears warm and still be a cute winter accessory.  Sometimes all you need is a little something to keep you warm.This headband can easily be made wider. The base ch just needs to be an odd number and the pattern will work out the same. I love the design of this stitch and can’t wait to try it with other projects. I think it would be awesome for a dish cloth or face scrubbies.

  1. Dear Breann.

    I just don’t get it at row 2 in the easy textured ear warmer. My impression is that texture is supposed to look like valley and ridge to the eye. As you write ..” ch2 ,skip first slipstich “ in my piece of work I’m supposed to “go up the ridge” – in to a hdc just after the 2 chains. Therefore I make a slipstich right away after ch2? Although you right ..” skip first slst, for me that would mean skip a set of slst und hdc, if you are to do slst upon hdc and hdc upon slst, in other words valley and ridge?

    1. Hi 🙂 Your last stitch in row 1 should be a sl st. So when you turn, ch 2 (this counts as hdc), then sl st into the first hdc. The sl sts are working to the hdc and the hdc into the sl st.

      Hope this helps!

      1. Thank You!
        As I read your text, how tou chose to write it down. I see it in inside my head.

        Kindly Linda Hansson

  2. Hi There,

    I love to crochet so this winter was looking for some new ideas for Headband. Good to see this Post.

    As I understand basically we need to follow Half double crochet in every line. As we are not making Head size loop rather doing the loop by making this design, the whole design looks like a ridge one. Hope this is the right understanding! 🙂
