How to Crochet a Quick Twist Headband or Earwarmer, A Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern With a Twist


Free Crochet Headband Pattern

This Twist ear warmer crochet pattern uses the same extended single crochet stitch used for my Brooklyn mittens and boot cuffs. I eliminated the chains in between to make a denser fabric for more warmth. This works up in less than one hour and would make a great item for last minute gifts or craft fairs. I used my favorite yarn, Lionbrand Wool Ease for the samples. Any light worsted weight yarn should work. I hope you like the pattern.

How to Finish Your Work in the Round With an Invisible Join


As we crochet more, we all learn new techniques to add finishing touches to our work. Use this quick tip to finish your work in the round and you won't be able to tell where your round ended. A video is also provided at the end of the blog post. Do you have any crochet tips or tricks up your sleeve? Please share them in the comments below. 


Cut the yarn and pull the yarn tail out, thread a yarn needle with the tail and insert it under the first sc.


Then insert it into the first st, pull the yarn tail until you have a fake stitch which is the same size as the rest of your stitches.


Your fake stitch will look just like any other stitch of the round ( shown in blue). You can now go ahead and weave in that tail.

Tulip Garden Beanie Crochet Pattern

Textured Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

Textured Hat Crochet Pattern



This is another one of my patterns in the Puff Stitch Crochet Hats series. I love textured hats and this one is no different. Puff stitches interspersed with front post stitches make these lovely hats unique. I used Lionbrand Wool Ease for the samples, but you can substitute it with any light worsted weight yarn. The hat has a fair amount of elasticity and the design becomes more prominent once you wear the hat on your head. 

When I asked my blog readers to help me name this hat, the things they saw in the design were simply mind-boggling. Praying hands, mom's hugs, migrating birds, and Tulip garden are some of them that really stood out. I picked the name Tulip Garden Beanie as it has a nice ring to it and sounds cheerful. A big thank you to Jason Samra Adams for suggesting this beautiful name. 

*The pattern is written in standard American terms.

*Any light worsted weight yarn ( size 4 medium) can be used. Lionbrand Wool Ease was used for gauge. Colors used were Fisherman, Seaspray and Grey Heather.

* Sizes include Toddler, Child, Preteen to Small Adult and Large Adult.

Hook I (5.5 mm) for Adult and Toddler sizes. Child size is worked using an H (5mm) hook.

* One fur pom pom. I used a 3 ½ inch one for the child and adult sizes. Toddler size might need a 3 inch pom pom. You can find a free tutorial to make a pom pom for less than a dollar here: Fur Pom Pom Tutorial


* Yarn needle to weave in the tails.

Sunsational Sun Hat, Crochet Pattern


Crochet Sun Hat Pattern


Sun Hat Crochet Pattern






Crochet Pattern for Woman's Sun Hat


Pin it for later:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/51087777006846179/

Are you looking for a Sun Hat Crochet Pattern that will make a statement? Your search ends here! This hat has a spiral design that extends seamlessly all the way to the edge of the brim. Millinery wire and a joiner are used for the brim. If you make a brim that is 3 1/2 inches wide, it keeps its shape even without the wire, but adding the wire is highly recommended. A link to purchase the wire and joiners is provided in the pattern. It comes very cheap at 95 cents per yard.

I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Delux yarn for these hats and loved it. Working with cotton yarn generally hurts my hands but not this one. It is a little thinner than Lily Sugar n' Cream and seemed just the right gauge for this project. You can finish the hat in just a day and have a Sunsational sun hat ;). A big thank you to Betty Bridges for suggesting the name.

* The pattern includes sizes Baby, Toddler, Child and Adult.

* The pattern is written in standard American terms.

* It uses worsted weight cotton yarn and a 4.5mm Hook.

* A 1 1/2 yard Millinery wire and joiner are used for the Brim. Link to purchase it is provided in the pattern. It comes cheap at 95 cents per yard.
