I had been trying to come up with an idea for super quick gifts this year and then one day inspiration struck for this "Knit-Look" Chunky Headwarmer! It's PERFECT for teacher gifts and gifts for family....even picky teenagers! 😀
It's also PERFECT for craft fairs! I used Lion Brand Hometown USA (less than a skein and usually found for around $3.00) and a large button. But the BEST part?!?! It took less than a half hour to make, including sewing on the button! The combination of the cost and time to create makes it a PERFECT item for craft fairs! 😀

Materials: US Size M/N 9.00mm crochet hook( My hook of choice can be purchased through our affiliates: Amour Jumbo Cro Hook M/9.00mm ) (or proper hook to obtain gauge), yarn needle, scissors, button (1-¾" - 2-½")
Yarn: Bulky / 6 Weight (55 yards), Lion Brand Hometown USA was used for the head warmers in the photos

- ch(s): chain(s)
- sl st: slip stitch
- sc: single crochet
- st(s): stitch(es)
- yo: yarn over
- BLO: back loop only
- modified slst2tog: See Special Stitches
- (Modified) Slip Stitch 2 Together (slst2tog): Insert hook into same st as previous st worked, yo, pull up a loop, insert hook into next st, yo, pull up loop and pull thru both loops on hook. **This st is modified because you begin each one in the previous st worked, therefore, your st count will not decrease. **Note: It will seem as though you’re working these sts along the backside of the previous row of sc.

- The ch-1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.

*Tip: It is normal for crochet items to stretch out when worn so don't be afraid to make your initial fit a little snug.
From bottom to top, insert the buttonhole end of headwarmer thru the loop created at the opposite end (see close up photo above). The buttonhole end should be on the outside of the headwarmer. Try it on for fit. Adjust the buttonhole end to adjust size. Once you have a good fit, sew your button on the Right Side of the headwarmer, opposite the buttonhole end.

If I wanted to use worsted weight,4 yarn, how many strands would I need?
Hi Kelly, It really depends on which yarn you'd like to use. I'd start with 3 strands and make a quick gauge swatch and go from there. 🙂 ~Jennifer
