inspirational post, encouragementNatalia McHayle1 Comment

You ever felt down in the dumps about yourself, your life, where you're going, etc...? Yes, that was me a few weeks ago.  As much as I wanted that period of my life to be over with, I needed just about everything that happened, to happen.  Read on more on how I took a much needed break from social media to spend time with family, recuperate, get inspiration, and more importantly get my mind back on track.

Materials

  • 1 ball chunky weight yarn (5)
  • I used approximately 1/2 of a ball of Patons Classic Roving Wool yarn
  • 6 mm crochet hook 
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker (optional to mark 1st stitch in each row)

Gauge

  •  1 row of 8 hdc stitches = 3 inches

Notes

  • Pattern is worked in the round, chaining 2 for each row
  • Ch 2 does not count as a stitch
  • Pattern is worked on both the right and wrong side

Terminology (US Terms)

  • Fdsc - foundation single crochet
  • Sc - single crochet 
  • Ch - chain
  • Hdc - half double crochet 
  • St - Stitch 
  • RS - right side 
  • WS - wrong side

Special Stitch

  • Camel Stitch; hdc in the 3rd loop.  This loop is located behind /underneath the hdc stitch from the previous row when the wrong side is facing you. ( see picture below)
With the wrong side facing you, loop 1 is front loop and loop 2 is back loop

With the wrong side facing you, loop 1 is front loop and loop 2 is back loop

With wrong side facing you, loop 3 is located behind loop 2 right underneath

With wrong side facing you, loop 3 is located behind loop 2 right underneath

 

Pattern

This pattern is designed for the average adult sized woman head.  Width can be easily adjusted by chaining more or less. 

Fdsc 52 or ch 52 very loosely and join with sl st.

This can be modified to your liking depending on how big or small you would like your ear warmer to be.  Add more chains for bigger size; subtract for smaller size.  Chains must be in multiples of 2.
