Up here in the frozen North (it’s been snowing now for about 4 months, and there’s not really an end in sight, but we’re used to that, we revel in it, we can take it, bring it on and all that), we live in “layers”. There are some days when there’s not been an ear warmer/headband ever knitted that will take on -40F. And then the days get warmer (“warm” is relative, when it’s -40 one week, the next week +20 is “warm”), a headband/ear warmer is just the ticket!

This free pattern, knitted in bulky yarn will have your ears all warmed up in no time at all. http://tmatthewsfineart.blogspot.com/2010/01/free-knitting-pattern-headband-ear_15.html

    Thanks Terrye! I have been stash busting with headbands lately. Can always use a new pattern!

    This is cute – my daughter is a pony-tail girl, so she doesn’t like to wear a hat, but a nice headband?!! Nice! Like Becky, I’ve got plenty of nice stash to whip some up.

    I love this and I love that it uses a button so that you can use it around your hairstyle! I’m also a pony-tail girl and love headbands in the winter, though the stretch over your head kind tend to still wreak havoc on the style.

    My nieces showed me ones just like these that they had bought and I am GLAD to see your free patterns here.

    Now I will be able to make some myself!

    Thank you for publishing your pattern for free! These headbands/ear warmers are a HUGE here in Alaska! I kept contemplating buying one to take it apart so I could figure out how to make them. Now, I can without having to buy one. I’m not one to buy things I like if I can make them myself! Super easy pattern!!! Thank you again!

    I have been wanting to make some of these headbands for my granddaughters in Collage. I was going to buy one the other day but I thought $10 was too much for such a small amt. of yarn. Now I can make them in their school colors. Thank you so much for posting them.
