The cold weather is creeping in here in New England, and I keep seeing these headband style ear warmers popping up all over.
With two strands of worsted weight yarn held together and a J-hook:
ch 6 and sl st in first ch to form a ring
Rnd 1: ch 6, dc in ring, *ch 3 dc in ring* repeat 3x, ch 3 and sl st in beginning of first ch of ch 6 (six ch 3 spaces created)
Rnd 2: (sc, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sc) in each ch 3 space around; join with sl st in first sc (top petals made)
Rnd 3: sc around post of first dc in rnd 1; *ch 5, sc around post of next rnd 1 dc* repeat 4x and sl st in beginning of first ch of ch 5
Rnd 4: (sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc) in each ch 5 space around; join with sl st in first sc
With one strand of worsted weight yarn and an H-hook:
ch 4 sl st in first ch to form ring
ch 1, work 2 sc in each ch around - 8sc
without joining, work sc in each sc around three more times
stuff with fiberfill
sc in each sc around one more time
*sl st in next sc, skip next* repeat until 4sc remain
Fasten off leaving long tail and stitch to center of flower.
