As the cooler temperatures creep in and then the weather quickly changes its mind again, we are left wondering what knitwear to throw on on a morning.

For example: one day this October, I left the house and it was 5 degrees and then the temperature sored to a high of 20 by school pick up! Crazy! Now almost into December, I’ve been tricked again by minus temperatures, a sprinkling of snow, ice and storms over the weekend… Today? 10 degrees when I got in the car to come to work.

A cool chill in the wind at times, but not yet cold enough for wrapping yourself up like a parcel with full winter warmer gear; hats, scarves, gloves…the lot.

At Woolly HQ, we have developed this cute twist crochet headband using our 100% Pure Merino Chunky Yarn to see you through the turbulent weather season. Made with pure merino wool yarn, which is fantastically temperature regulating and the band shape, rather than full hat, allows constant ventilation for when those temperatures can’t decide where to be; warm ears but not a sweaty head! Perfect!

We love the design of a simple twist to the centre, it feels very retro and our chunky merino yarn is available in a variety of soft shades to suit any colouring. Plus – using chunky yarn to crochet or knit with means you can whip up this crochet headband in no time. Half an hour for an experienced crocheter we reckon, it can really be that quick and simple!

The crochet headband also makes for a sweet little handmade Christmas present for friends and family.

Below is the pattern for a “Small” adult size, however you can easily customise the size to the fit that you prefer by chaining more or less stitches in the first step and even adapt the size for children.
