More about this crochet crown headband pattern:
This crochet crown headband pattern uses a worsted weight #4 yarn.
I tried this pattern out with 2 different worsted weight yarns from Lion Brand Yarn Company.
I used Lion Brand Heartland and Lion Brand Wool Ease yarns. Those were the specific yarns in worsted weight that I had the most of in my stash. Do you have one of those in your stash?
This crochet crown ear warmer is worked back and forth in rows. The main stitch used is the half double crochet worked into the third loop.
There are also 2 other special stitches that are used. The instructions for those special stitches are in the stitch abbreviations section of this pattern below.
