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 neighborhood, it’s still a nice accessory for a chilly morning.

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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?
    THANK YOU!
    PS I love your website, videos, patterns, yarns, etc!

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