A Crochet Project: My Version of the "Easiest Headwrap Ever"



I crocheted this headwrap in less than an afternoon -- even with morning sickness -- so I suppose that qualifies as "easy".  (I even wove in all the ends!)  I think it turned out pretty cute!


I used a bright coral button to contrast with the periwinkle blue.  (The button was from a pack that I got on super clearance at Jo Ann's -- always check those clearance bins -- the whole pack was twenty five cents!)
 

While I enjoyed this pattern, I think I might try my hand at creating my own headwrap, or ear warmer, pattern soon.  They make great projects both because they don't take a long time to finish and because they can use up those random half balls of yarn running around.

Do you like to crochet headwraps?  Do you like to wear them?

Don't I look silly without my glasses?

Pattern Notes

Yarn: Red Heart Classic in Light Periwinkle (By the way, often this yarn can be a little scratchy, but it softens quite a bit after washing and drying.)

Hook: H

Pattern: Jonna is the creator of this pattern, which can be found {here}.

My Opinion and Changes:  Overall I do like this pattern very much.  I followed the pattern pretty closely.  Really the only difference that I did was that I worked the hdc (that's half double crochet, in case you were wondering) the regular way.  Jonna likes to work the stitches slightly differently, but I decided not to do that.  I did also add just a couple of rows to the middle.



Here's some of the places where I like to link up!

  5. Cute. I'm not a headwrap person myself - my hair doesn't suit that - but my friend wears them all the time and swears by them to keep her ears warm. She made a bunch for a craft show and sold out in a flash.

    1. Thank you! Although I think that I followed the pattern for this particular flower. The difference must be in "my style". ;-)
