I had a great time making these lovely headbands for my all my Grand-Valentines. Moogly blog has this great free headband pattern called Love is Cold Ear Warmer
I found that using the I hook as directed gave me a smaller gauge, so please check gauge; but it worked out fine as it made a wonderfully small head warmer for Izzy; 6-9 months. The larger size came out to an average child size; 5- 10 years. I could have matched gauge and worked it out but this was more than fine my purposes.
I used the double crochet foundation method of starting and also added a second round of white before making the hearts. On the smaller warmer I only made one round of white before the restarting the red as I felt it was deep enough.
Overall, a fast project that could easily be done for a clan of grandchildren like myself; party gifts for classmates; church group fundraisers… etc.
