Get the Perfect Fit for Your Ear Warmer Every Time!

I’ve designed quite a bit of crocheted headband & ear warmers over the years and much to my surprise I realized that I have never shared how to get the sizing perfect!

With this free headband size chart, you will get the perfect fit every time! Promise! Once you get the knack of sizing, you’ll be making one for the whole family. 

How Wide Should A Headband or Ear Warmer Be?

A headband/ear warmer should be about 4″ wide. This is the perfect size to cover ears and keep you warm.

  • Child to Adult Headband = 4 inches wide

You could change this easily if you’d like it smaller or even wider. In my experience, I found that 4″ tends to be the ideal size for most ear warmer patterns.

Crochet Stitches I Recommend for Ear Warmers

For headbands patterns when using the sizing chart below, I would suggest trying to stick with ones that use simple stitches such as the sc (single crochet), hdc (half double crochet), and dc (double crochet) for best results.

Plus, these crochet stitches are also PERFECT for beginners trying to work up an ear warmer!

The Yarn I Recommend for Your Ear Warmer Headband Patterns

I love using all types of yarn for headbands, but probably my favorite is Lion Brand Woolspun! It is soft, has a great texture, and looks great when worn! 

Update: Since the writing of this article, this yarn is no longer widely available. I suggest using Color Made Easy from Lion Brand Yarn as a replacement.

Keep in mind that when you are making a headband, it is ideal to know the circumference of the persons head you will be making it for.

Use the first size of the chart to gauge what size that will best work for them. After you have that done, you will then move over to the band size to determine the correct size of hat to make.

Keep in Mind

Since MOST yarn stretches, it is good to start with a band size that is a 1-2″ less circumference than what was measured.  It will give you the perfect fit 99% of the time!

    1. Hi Val, I recommend a 4-inch width for headbands from child sizes up to adult, but for baby I’d probably make a smaller width about 2″ to 3″ depending on what you prefer.
