Since I cut my hair recently, it’s been interfering more with my workouts 🙂 so I decided to make a couple of the simple twisted headband that I made last year for my sis. (Pattern by Rebecca Langford.)
And when my sis found me crocheting these, she requested a wider version to serve as an ear warmer for herself. (The weather has been zigzagging like crazy lately, and it got pretty cold really quickly recently.)
I used foundation crochet for all these items, which I think worked out better than the earlier headband, which started with a chain. Instead of following the recommended gauge, I just went with my gut. It worked out okay.
The brown ones are for me – the yarn is a bit coarse, and I’d had to frog a couple of apparel projects that I’d completed with it because they were not very comfortable to wear. Since then, I’ve been using this yarn for projects that do not constantly touch the skin – covers and cases for items, decorative pieces, and the previous headband too! 🙂
For the narrower headband, I added a thinner, pink yarn to the brown one – this one too had looked promising, but had knit up pretty bad, and was subjected to frogging as well. (Now that I think about it, I seem to have frogged quite a few projects…)
The red ear warmer is for my sis – I added a simple eyelet design along the middle since it is wide and I felt that it needed something extra.
I’ve already used the headbands for my workouts, and they are definitely a huge help. As for the earwarmer, it hasn’t been used yet since the weather is oscillating again, but I’m hoping it’ll serve my sis well when it gets colder.
And now, I go back into hibernation, waiting for my next project! Hope your projects are giving you joy.
