Crochet ear warmer pattern
Piedmont Headband is a free crochet ear warmer pattern that is perfect for fall and football season! It is made in the beautifully textured basketweave stitch, which uses post stitches. You can make it in your team colors and wear it to a tailgate party or to the game. It is just the right width to cover your ears. If you aren’t into sports, make it in whatever color your heart desires!
I made this headband in Berroco Lustra. This is a beautiful yarn, but it has been discontinued. I suggest that you use Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Merino. This yarn is the same weight, it is soft, and comes in a huge variety of colors! See all the colors here.

Difficulty Level Intermediate
Available Sizes Child [Adult]
Finished Measurements Circumference 16  inches x 3 inches wide.
I made my Piedmont Headband in Berroco Lustra (50% Peruvian Wool, 50% Tencel® Lyocell; 197 yds [180 m]; 3.5 oz [100 g]; CYCA weight 4/worsted): #3140 Montmartre, 1 skein. This yarn has been discontinued.
I suggest that instead you use Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Merino (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 220 yds [200 m]; 3.5 oz [100 g]; CYCA weight 3/4 light/worsted): #48 Deep Ultramarine, 1 skein. One headband takes about 85 yds of yarn, so one skein will be enough to make 2 headbands.
Crochet Hook H/8 [5 mm], or size needed to obtain gauge.
