The Minta earwarmer/headband, messy bun/ponytail hat
is an easy, fast, beginners’ crochet project. A one row repeat pattern!
What is great about this pattern is that you can use it to make a crochet messy bun hat also called crochet ponytail hat. All you need to do is make the band wider by working additional rows.
I used leftover Red Heart super saver yarn in color Painted Desert
with a 5.5 mm hook
sc single crochet
sl.st. slip stitch
blsc back loop single crochet
blsl.st. back loop slip stitch
The crochet headband I made fits a youth to adult head size.
Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from the hook, 27 sc , 10 sl.st. 28 sc, turn
Row 2: ch 1 (does not count as a stitch here and throughout this pattern), 28 sc, 10 sl.st., 28 sc, turn
tip: always make the sl.sts. loose. This way, working on the back loop of the slip stitches in the following row will be much easier.
Row 3: ch 1, 28 blsc (which mean 1 blsc in each next 28 sc), 10 blsl.st. (which mean 1 blsl.st. in each next 10 sl.st.), 28 blsc (which mean 1 blsc in each next 28 sc)
Summary or row 3: 1 blsc in each sc, 1blsl.st. in each sl.st.
Repeat row 3 to the desired width
for the pictured headband I repeated row 3 four more times.
Sew together the 2 edges of the crochet earwarmer.
A one row repeat pattern. Can’t get easier than that, right?
all you have to remenber is
- all stitches are made in the back loop only
- blsc on each sc
- blsl.st. on each sl.st.
- count the number of sc and sl.st. (use 2 stitch markers if need be to mark the 1st sl.st and the last sl.st. of the group of 10 sl.sts)
