As much as I hate to think about it – our summers are way too short – cooler days will be here come October.  It’s always nice to have some fresh winter accessories.  It’s also nice to get a head start on some of those crochet Christmas gifts!

A huge shout out to Salty Pearl Crochet and The Unraveled Mitten as they have organized this timely Christmas Hat CAL.  I am so happy to be a part of it.  Are you looking for nine great new Christmas hat crochet patterns?

I love this diamond stitch.  I love it’s texture.  So I have used it in this quick to make Crochet headband/ear warmer.  It is worked in two pieces that are crocheted together.  The result is a double thick Crochet headband that gives you a little extra warmth during the fall and winter months.  It is crocheted with one of my favourite yarns, Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand Yarns.  The matching scarf pattern is now available on my blog – also for free! You’ll find it here: Diamond in The Rough Scarf
