My Granny Square Obsession Continues...

After several blankets, a cowl and countless necklaces for Emma and Sara, I wanted to try another crochet project that will get me in the mood for chilly mornings.

This is a simple project if you know how to make a granny square. If you haven't gotten around to mastering them yet, here is one of my favorite YouTube videos that will guide you through.

To make these fab ear warmers, choose 4 (or more!) colors in medium worsted weight yarn. I prefer I Love This Yarn brand because it is soft, has amazing colors, and is inexpensive. You will also need a crochet hook (size I), scissors and a plastic yarn needle for finishing.

Whip up 4-5 squares, planning out the colors so no square is alike.

Lay out the colors in the order you prefer for your headband.

Using the hidden whip stich method (here is a great tutorial) attach all squares together. I love this seamless method of attaching granny squares, and once you learn it, it makes for easy work.

Turn it inside out and try your new ear warmers on! Bring on the chill!

I think I may have to make some kid-sized versions now...
