Crochet Hugs & Kisses Headband Earwarmer

My latest Hugs & Kisses Headband project was designed directly for the Nautical Twilight Alaskan Crochet Cruise.  This headband is quick, easy and just perfect for glacier watching.  But if you don’t have any glaciers in your neighbourhood, it’s still a nice accessory for a chilly morning.

  2. Reflective Tunisian Headband
  3. Crochet Hugs & Kisses Headband Crown
  4. Crochet Double Cable Headband

The headband is just enough to keep your ears warm for those like me that don’t particularly like wearing a hat.  This project is also a great item to make for selling at craft fairs.  I only used just a bit over 1 oz of yarn.  So a Caron One Pound ball should give you 14 or 15 headbands.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favourites by following me HERE.

    Hi Jeanne
    Can you please send a diagram of the Hugs and Kisses I would appreciate it.

    • Perla, I just had Daniel make a diagram for you and I have added it to this article. You can download it for free and/or print it as well. Please enjoy.

    Is round 4 missing a step after chain 3? In the video the chain 3 is followed by a dc but the instructions above are missing the dc after the first chain 3.

    • Okay, I’ll have Jeanne circle back.

    Hi Jeanne

    I loved doing this headband, i used Caron Baby Cakes in Dreamy Violet colourway (what i had leftover from a project), i tried a 5mm hook but it was too tight, so i settled on a 6.5mm hook instead as i made the largest size. If i were to make the other sizes in the same yarn (baby cakes or normal cakes) would i still need to use the 6.5mm hook or go down 1 hook for each different size?

    Your crochet friend in Melbourne Australia,

    Does anyone know approximately how much yarn this takes? I want to use a different yarn, but I’m not sure how much to get. Thanks.

  5. HI.
    I find myself a bit confused by the instructions vs video. I am kind of new at following patterns so the videos are priceless to me.
    I find that at 3:38 on the video feed, round 4, it shows to skip three stitches to make the X, leaving an empty space, or gap, between X’s.
    Then at round 8 (a repeat of round 4), 8:00 of the video feed, it shows to skip only two stitches to make the X thereby leaving no space between the X’s.
    At 8:41, if you stop it there, it shows the overall project (up to end of round 8). It shows two kiss rows demonstrated: the two X, or kiss, rows are different. Round 4 having a space between the kisses and round 8 no space between the kisses.
    Am I imagining this? Which is the way to do it? Does it matter?
    PS I love your website, videos, patterns, yarns, etc!

    • Belinda

      I think I have this figured out!

    Hi Jeanne, I would like to know how to make the hugs and kisses headband smaller. Thanks so much for all of your patterns.

    I can not get any of your patterns to download. They all say unsuccessful download.

    • I’m not sure what to say. We have people downloading our patterns all day long. Are you clicking the pink “Get Pattern” button?
