I’ve crocheted some more warmth during the winter and these were made for me.
The headband is perfect for around my ears and the infinity scarf fits over my hoodies and around my face to block the wind. I used a heavy yarn and did a half-double crochet using double strands of yarn to make them thick and warm. The scarf is wide enough to cover my mouth and nose in the frigid air. They were quick and I did them both in one night. I even made a pair of mittens to go with them but they’re not very usable when carrying in the firewood, gathering the eggs or bottle feeding calves so they stay in my dress coat for non-work events.
Here’s a closer look at the stitches I used and I got both pieces out of one skein of yarn.
