Keeping the Face and Ears Warm

I’ve crocheted some more warmth during the winter and these were made for me.

Wide headband and a infinity scarf

Wide headband and an infinity scarf

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.

Half-double crochet stitch and the ends were stitched together using single crochet but that can’t be seen in this picture.

    • Good luck! I lost 24 pounds when I started a program through Carilion a year ago. I feel so much better and though I only dropped one pant size it still felt so good. I need to get back to that program again. It worked because I ate three regular meals, cut my portions, and walked daily. I still had my ice cream and chocolate but not as much and still lost 24 pounds.
      Good luck and I’ll be watching for progress reports!!
