I have seen these cute ear warmers everywhere this winter. They are so cute…on everyone but me! I was so excited when I came upon this great free tutorial so I could make one for my girls.
I was finally able to finish it (after starting it over a month ago) and my daughter was really happy I was finally done. She has been patiently waiting. I was hoping to get it done before spring came. It would be a shame to have to pack it away until next winter. But we are still getting some snow here so she was able to get some use out of it!
I used the free pattern provided by T. Matthews Fine Art here. I followed her pattern closely except used a different pattern for my flower embellishment and instead of knitting the flower, I crocheted it. I used a chunky “denim” colored yarn (Wal-Mart). Has anyone seen one of these tutorials for one that is crocheted? I would love a link to it!

oops, nevermind, guess I should read better the 1st time! LOL
very cute! I can't knit or crochet, so I bought some adorable crocheted ones from Brooke at this blog … http://brookie-wookie.blogspot.com/2010/01/handmade-crocheted-head-wraps-for-sale.html
and I want to say that I found your blog from reading hers anyway? There is some kind of connection there anyway. Maybe she can hook you up with a pattern. Love your blog!

I am off to get this pattern. My duaghter will absolutely love this. Thanks for sharing.
is there a more boyish pattern or just omit the flower? i do not think any of my 5 boys would wear the flower… :-)

Found this –
What a sweet smile she has and the headband looks adorable on her!
How much of the yarn did that take?? I have some leftover green & leftover off-white of the same Walmart yarn. I wanted to make this when I saw the original pattern but didn't even think about my Walmart yarn.
I would love a crochet pattern since I can't knit! I also love the crochet ear flap hats, but when I link to the etsy site, there only 6-24 month size patterns. Is it easy to make the hat bigger?
Looks great! Well done! Here are a couple I have on my to-do list –
Look at that cute smile! And the headband is adorable too.
I actually taught myself to crochet because of all the cute stuff you posted. I learned by watching videos on youtube.com! I'm not great, but I've made a few projects that turned out very cute.
This lady helped me with a pattern for an ear warmer similar to the one you made. I knew what I was looking for, but had a difficult time finding a pattern to follow. She had one made for an American Girl doll and it was exactly what I wanted.. so she was kind enough to convert it to an adult size wrap. I wear it more forward and angle it over my ears. I attached a large button to the back. I also changed it up a bit b/c I wanted a double crochet, instead of single. It came out pretty cute! I want to try to modify it a bit and make one for my girls. It went together quickly using Lion's brand Thick and Chunky yarn (vivid green with black trim and a black flower).
Here's the link to Carol's site:
If you try it and make any changes to it, I'd love to see what you do :)
oh, I should have mentioned that I probably made it about 11 double crochet wide. I didn't want it to fall too far back on my head, so I made it a bit thinner than her pattern. If you want a picture of the finished project, email me and I'll send you one :)

That is really cute! My daughters both love those ear warmer headbands, but they are so big! I would love to make smaller sizes that fit them!
Very cute! Thanks for the sweet comment about my appearance today. I am glad it's over!
I found this one and tried it out, just finished it today! It's so cute! I made it a little wider (I think where they say stop at 13 stitches I stopped at maybe 19??) I don't remember for sure. It was so fun to make!
how foes one get the free patterns??
