Cro-Shayley makes a Kiddo’s Cowl and Ear Warmers

Cool weather is approaching and it’s time to start making those fun accessories to stay warm. :) My sweet friend Ruby was in need of some ear warmers for Fall so with Anne Geddes Baby yarn, I used Red Heart’s Sock It to Me Scarf and Headband free pattern.


Sock It To Me Headband

Here are the directions:
EAR WARMERS
With larger hook and 2 strands held together, ch 14.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as first dc), [ch 1, skip next ch, dc in next ch] 5 times, turn—7 dc and 5 ch-1 spaces.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), [dc in next ch-1 space, ch 1, skip next dc] 5 times, dc in top of turning ch, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures desired length from beginning, slightly stretched.
Ear Warmers
Join Ends: Hold foundation ch and last row together, with sts matching, working through both thicknesses, slip st in each st across. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Bow Ties for GuysThere is a ruffle you can add to the sides of the ear warmers but I wanted to add a bow and I thought maybe the ruffle would be too much. If you’d like to continue making this headband and adding the ruffle, click here for the full pattern. To make the bow, I used Red Heart’s Bow Ties for Guys free pattern. Here are the directions:
BOW
