For your ear warmers you will need three shades of double knitting yarn (UK weight)
Colour A (Main colour) Colour B Colour C
and a 3.5mm hook.
ch = chain sc = single crochet (UK double crochet) dc = double crochet (UK treble) sc2tog = single crochet 2 together dc3tog = double crochet 3 together tch = turning chain
With colour A, make 17ch
2dc into 5th ch from hook
miss 1ch, 2dc into next ch 6 times
miss 1ch, 1dc into last ch, but do not make the last pull through of this stitch. Drop yarn A and pick up yarn B
Finish off the final dc by hooking up and pulling through colour B
Continuing with colour B, make 2dc in the space wetween the 2dc of previous row. Repeat this 5 more times
Make 1dc into tch of previous row. Again, do not make last pull through with colour B, but change to colour C
Repeat row 2 using colour C
Continue repeating row 2, changing colour at the end of each row in the sequence ABC, ABC......... until you have worked 52 rows in total. The last row should be in the main colour, A.
Break off yarns B and C
Continuing in colour A, work sc along side edge, making 2sc into each row.
Along short edge, work 7 sc2tog
Work in sc along other long edge as before
Work 7 sc2tog along final short edge
Fold work in half by bringing the 2 short ends together with the right sides facing.
Crochet the ends together by using sc along the 7 stitches at each end.
Turn right side out.
You may find the colours in the ear warmers featured in the photograph too bold and bright. If this is the case you could try more muted colours.
You could also work the headband in a single colour

Extreme crochet. The yarn is too thick. The hook is far too big to handle. Or you use your fist. It is fast and it is furious. It is very easy to do, but needs muscle and it needs space.
