I have become completely addicted to making ear warmer headbands. In fact, no one should have as many ear warmer headbands as I do. Not someone who lives in the South. Either way, today I am going to share with you my DIY Crochet Ear Warmer Headband Tutorial.
Easy Ear Warmer Headband
I have been making these headbands left and right! I was so excited to be spending a week in Colorado, and with the temps being much colder there, I had to make sure and keep my litter ears warm!
Realize that I have basically become addicted to making these now, and you will probably see several more versions on these Ear Warmer Headbands soon.
Why do I love to make these headbands so much? They are quick and relatively easy once you get the looping. I enjoy making these in all different colors and patterns.
DIY Ear Warmer Headband
What I used to make my DIY Crochet Ear Warmer Headband:
- a rectangular loom
- super bulky (6oz.)in Graphite from Yarn Bee
- loom tool (hook)
- measuring tape
- crochet hook
While this looks like a “big list” of supplies, it really isn’t. The main things you will use for this project are the loom and the looming tool (hook).
How to Crochet a Headband
Instead of trying to take pictures and possibly confuse you along the way, I have decided to make a video tutorial to share the technique on how I made this ear warmer headband. Check it out below.
Once you get the hang of this technique, you can bet you will probably dish one of these out in an hour. That’s a pretty good time for a project!
There are also a ton of fun little variations you can do with this project. I have seen several patterns for doing these headbands by hand, but I crochet almost as well as I sew, and the loom helps me out tremendously. If you were a super crafty crocheter you could probably whip one of these out in less than an hour, but I am a bit average.
Make sure to check out the video above, and I hope you find it easy to follow and will be making some of your own headbands soon. Enjoy this DIY Crochet Ear Warmer Headband Tutorial and let me know what you think!

You can also break out the embroidery machine and add some monograms to your headbands. There are lots of fun ways you can make these.
