This headband is a great first project to try when learning how to work in the round. I’d recommend using the correct gauge (stitches per inch) for the proper fit. If this headband is crocheted loosely it will be too big and if it is crocheted tightly it will be too small. Learn more about gauge here.
Happy Ear Warmer Making!
This tutorial is super simple and great for new crocheters!
This simple pattern is quick to work up, easy to make (simple stitches!) and would be perfect for giving as a gift! Because of the simple stitches, this truly is a great ear warmer pattern for beginners to try who wants to make something in the round to try.

CHAINED CROCHET EARWARMER PATTERN
Before we get started, I wanted to mention that this crochet headband pattern is part of a more extensive list of awesome designs that were released this month called Project Crochet! (You can find the links to all their projects at the bottom of this post)
My contribution to this collection is the chained crochet headband pattern (Or ear warmer depending on what you prefer to call it) which is a simple pattern that takes little time to make.
THE YARN That’s perfect for this crochet headband
When deciding on what yarn to use I choose one of my favorites Lion Brand Woolspun because it’s soft, comfortable to work with and comes in a variety of beautiful colors! Did I mention that it is an extremely warm and cozy yarn! I highly suggest using this yarn because it really will make this the best chunky crochet ear warmer pattern!

If you can’t find this yarn then I suggest trying Color Made Easy by Lion Brand which is a very similar yarn. It has a lot of the same texture and is about the same thickness so it would work great for this pattern!

ENOUGH YARN TO MAKE TWO Headbands!
Plus, as a bonus, there is enough yarn in each skein that you can make at least two headbands out of it! It’s a Win-Win! This comfortable crochet ear warmer is extremely simple to make because I only used the half double crochet stitch which makes this headband work up pretty fast!
The simple stitches also make it a perfect beginner-friendly project! I think it would be an ideal pattern to start with for someone who is just learning how to crochet in the round.

Please read this part about GAUGE
- You will need to make sure you have 8 stitches for every 4 inches of the headband for the correct fit.
- Gauge is very important for proper sizing – Learn more about what gauge is and why it is so important here.
- I get many messages saying this headband is too small or too big. Correct gauge and proper weight of yarn will need to be used as suggested in the pattern to get the headband to fit as written.
