INSTRUCTIONS:

Getting Ready:
I used a 3 inch in diameter lid to cut out my batting circles – 1 inch for each side.

Hair Band / Alice Band Cover:
With 4, 50 mm hook

CH 5 (or chain to fit snugly around your band)
SL ST to form a ring; work 1 SC into each CH (5 SC);
continue working in the round; work 1 SC into each (5 SC);
make a tube long enough to slide the band in.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Make a magic circle/ ring

RND 1: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC); work 11 DC into ring (12 DC); SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH;
RND 2: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC); work 1 DC into SAME ST; work 2 DC into each ST all around (24 DC); SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH;

*work 2 DC into NEXT ST; work 1 DC into NEXT ST.

Fasten off and leave a tail for sewing.

Building The Ear Warmer:

Insert the batting into the bowl part of the front piece; place back over and sew the two pieces together;
Note – use on the ‘back loops’ to sew together; before sewing completely close – insert a small bit of fiberfill put on the front side to give it that ‘puffy’ look; insert the band into the ear warmer – just about half way depending on the size of the head 🙂 – sew opening close and secure band.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Snow Flower: (Make 2)
With 3,25 mm hook
CH 6 – SL ST into first CH to form a ring;
RND 1: *[CH 3; work 1 TR into ring; CH 3; SL ST into ring]. Repeat from * 5 more times.
