I've been thinking of making my own earmuff headband for a while, but wasn't sure how to approach it. Recenlty, I made a French Knitter, and then made an Instructable on how to use one. I had to knit a cord to show how to use it, so then I just had this cord made out of a soft yarn just sitting here. I was playing with it and thought about coiling it up into a bun and realized the length I had was perfect for covering my ears. So, I decided to make coiled bun earmuff headband.

Considering I just made it up as I went, I'm happy with how it turned out :)

All pictures of me wearing the headband were taken by the amazingly talented photographer audreyobscura .

Step 1: Supplies

You don't need too many supplies for this, just time really.

Supplies:

*I would suggest a soft yarn if possible. The type I used isn't available anymore (Loops & Threads Silky Soft), just in case people were wondering.

<p>awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>
<p>Thank you :)</p>
<p>cool</p>
Nice
<p>Thank you :)</p>
<p>I like the looks of the ear muff but have some questions. <br>1. How long is it?</p><p>2. how do you hook the thing in a roll, sew it or how?</p><p>3. How do you keep it from falling off your head?</p><p>Thankyou </p>
<p>All the way around it was about 25inches. I sewed it into a roll. I tried to sew it a little tighter around my head to prevent it from falling off. That is kind of the tricky part. You just got to safety pin it until you like the fit, and then sew it all together.</p>
<p>Thanks so much! I needed to make a cool birthday gift for my daughter, and when I saw this 'ible.. I instantly thought, &quot;Princess Leia Cinnamon Buns!&quot;</p><p>She loved 'em! : )</p><p>~ Cynthia</p>
<p>Oh my gosh that looks great! Awesome job :)</p>
<p>Tr&egrave;s beau serre-t&ecirc;te, bien pratique pour les oreilles une bonne id&eacute;e, BRAVO et un grand merci car ma fille l'adore. Cordialement.</p>
<p>Merci beaucoup! Je suis heureux que vous et votre fille comme elle!</p>
<p>and how much is it cause I would need to ask my mom and dad I am just a kid</p>
<p>As kids we used to make these by banging small nails into a wooden cotton reel (do they still make those?)</p>
<p>I'm not sure, but those things look great :)</p>
<p>This is cool... I knit and also can use the French Knitter, a simple I-cord that you have made something amazing!! </p>
<p>Thanks :)</p>
Cool, always love hand made clothing !!
<p>Thanks, it is the best :)</p>
Your adorable ! nice job.
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>What a nice looking scarf that is. I am sending the link to my daughter-in-law, her mom might make it for her. I just might try making one :) thank for sharing Penolopy~ Have a sweet Valentine's Day~</p><p>sunshiine~</p>
<p>Thanks sunshiine! I think you could make an earmuff headband that is crochet. That was what I was going to do originally, but then I discovered the French Knitter and wanted to try to make more projects with it :)</p>
Thanks Penolopy~ I am going ask my brother to keep an eye out for a French knitter ( he is a regular thrift store shopper) so I might try knitting. I can knit a basic stitch but following a pattern for a sweater or something has not turned out for me, I really need more practice. I might try this with crochet though. Love the muffs~<br>sunshiine~
<p>where did you get the thing with the pink top</p>
<p>The French Knitter? I got mine from my mom, but you can find them on <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007PW0DIU/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B007PW0DIU&linkCode=as2&tag=instructabl0d-20&linkId=CKDOE2B5SORCOC2F" target="_blank">Amazon</a><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007PW0DIU/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B007PW0DIU&linkCode=as2&tag=instructabl0d-20&linkId=CKDOE2B5SORCOC2F" target="_blank"></a> or probably at many craft stores like Michaels and JoAnns. So, about $10, or you can make your own with a paper towel tube and popsicle sticks: <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Cheap-and-Easy-DIY-French-Knitter/">https://www.instructables.com/id/Cheap-and-Easy-DIY...</a></p>
