Payton Ear Warmer

Yes, it is the first day of spring and I am just now getting to post this pattern. Some cool nights are still expected for most, right? Here I present to you a ear warmer/ headband that I created for a custom order. It is a simple pattern that gives a nice look.

Worsted Weight Yarn
- I used Hobby Lobby I Love this Yarn
H/ 5mm Hook
Yarn Needle
2 Buttons

Stitch Abbreviations:
Sc- single crochet
Hdc - half double crochet
Dc- double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
Ch – chain
Dec- Decrease

-       The chain does not count as a stitch.
-       You can adjust the width by adding or subtracting the beginning chain. Just remember to have a multiple of 3 plus 2.
-       Feel free to add or subtract rows to your preferred length.
-       To create a nice edge I turn then chain 1
-       Also, Make sure to turn your work the same direction at the end of each row
-       Approx. size: 3.75” Wide x 22” Long

Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and each chain across (16 sts)

I love this pattern, easy for a beginner. But I don't understand the finish. I assume the buttons are decorations and I sew the ends together as shown? Thanks!

I did not sew it together. I attached the buttons then used the holes to fasten it together. That way it can be unbuttoned to put on or get off if needed.
