Autumn Breeze Earwarmer and Headband

Wow! It's been quite the summer! I haven't had a chance to post nearly as much as I've wanted. But school is about to start for us and its time to get back to the daily routine! And I can't wait to show you some of the things I have in the works!

First up, a free pattern for you! In honor of fall being just around the corner, I'm introducing the Autumn Breeze Earwarmer/Headband pattern! It works up super quick and has a beautiful, intricate design. It would also look great with the Autumn Breeze Cowl!

What you’ll need:
  • G (4 mm) hook
  • WW yarn (I used Red Heart Soft)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Stitches used:
  • Foundation Half Double Crochet (FHDC)
  • Double crochet (dc)
  • Single Crochet (sc)
  • Slip Stitch (sl st)
  • Chain (ch)
  • Puff Stitch – yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up loop, repeat 2 more times (7 loops on hook). Yarn over, pull through all but one. Yarn over, pull through last two.
  • PuffTog- Yarn over, insert hook into puff stitch, pull up loop, yarn over, insert hook into space between puffs, pull up loop, yarn over, insert hook into next puff st, pull up loop (7 loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through 6 loops. Yarn over and pull through last 2 loops.

Gauge:
As worked in pattern R2-6 x 12 st (2 “leaves”) = 2.5”
9 FHdc= 2 in.


Notes:
  • Pattern is written for child size (adult size in parentheses)
  • Sizes measure child (19” ) adult ( 21”)
  • Pattern is worked in the round
