Create this beautiful crochet ribbon headband with this free crochet pattern!
I love this ear warmer pattern because there are endless possibilities with ribbon and color choices! This is a easy and fun simple project to make with your favorite colors and ribbon. This crochet ear warmer is a great way to add some fun and creativity into your quick project! Makes a perfect gift too!
This crochet project uses a size I crochet hook, 5.5 mm hook and basic crochet stitches (double crochet) and a series of skipped stitches to create a stitch pattern with holes for lacing up the ribbon.
Such a fun design, I hope you enjoy the bow ear warmer as much as I did creating it! This is a easy crochet headband and great item for craft shows!
The width of the headband measures approx. 9.5″ and 5″ tall for the height and fits a 20-23″ head circumference.

- I hook, 5.5 mm hook

12 sc’s X 14 rows = 4″ square
Ch 2 and ch 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as the first dc.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from the hk and each ch to end, turn (6).
Rows 2-52: Ch 1, sc in the BLO in each st across, turn (6).
Fold band in half and sl st ends together.
Sc 56 sts evenly around the top, sl st to join.
Row 1: Ch 1, sc in the third loop only in each st around, sl st to join (56).

Row 4: Ch 2, dc in each st around with 2 dc in the ch 2 sp from last row, sl st to join (56).

Row 6: Ch 2, dc in each st around with 2 dc in each ch 2 sp from last row, sl st to join and fasten off (56). Weave in ends.
Cut your 7/8″ ribbon 31″ long. Stick each end through the top two holes (in row 5) so either end of the ribbon comes out the holes from the back to the front. Make sure your ribbon is even before lacing it.
With the print side facing out, put both ends into the next hole (the single hole). Cross the ribbon in the back and pull it through either side of the next holes with the print side out.
After the last hole pull the ribbon up on either side through the dc’s (leaving 4 dc’s between ribbon). Tie the ribbon in a bow and trim ends at a slant with the point facing out.
Hi there, I’m in UK . What does BLO mean please and I guess if you are in USA, then your single crochet is double in UK and double is triple in UK . Is that correct please? Lovely pattern by the way, can’t wait to try it. Oh and worsted, I think, is double knitting yarn in UK? I’ve got a list from internet for the differences we have n crochet but can’t find the BLO.
Cheers again and looking forward to more patterns, they are fabulous.

Hi, BLO means back loop only. Instead of working through both stitches in a typical pattern, you are just working in the back loop only to create some texture. I believe you are correct about the US and UK stitches. The yarn weight is 4. I’m not sure what that is referred to in the UK. I hope this helps, thank you!
