Step 1: Supplies
Supplies needed for this project include:
6.0 mm Tunisian/Afghan Crochet Hook
Lion Brand Wool-ease Tonal Yarn (or another bulky weight yarn)
Step 2: Make Your Foundation Row
Tie a slip knot
Forward Pass: Insert hook in to second chain from the hook, yarn over hook and pull through the chain stitch. Continue across your chain stitches. You will have 12 loops on your hook.
Return Pass: Chain 1 (yarn over hook and pull through), yarn over hook and pull through two loops from your hook, repeat this until you have only one loop remaining on your hook.
This has created your foundation row...now you will complete the rest of the ear warmer using the Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS).
Step 3: Tunisian Simple Stitch
Forward Pass (Row 1): Insert hook into the next vertical bar from the hook. Yarn over hook and pull up a loop. Continue across the piece until you have 12 loops on your hook.
Return Pass (Row 1): Chain 1, Yarn over, pull through two loops. Repeat this until you have only one loop remaining on your hook.
Step 4: Binding Off
Continue your forward and return passes until you have 50 rows (or however many you need to reach your desired size).
When you reach your last row, start one more forward pass. Instead of leaving loops on your crochet hook follow these steps to "bind off":
Insert hook into the next post, yarn over hook, pull through both the post AND the loop that is already on the hook. This will leave you with one loop on your hook after each post as you work down the row.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
When you reach the end of your 50 rows, chain 4 and attach your yarn to row one with a slip stitch. Continue to chain 4 and work back and forth until rows 1 and 50 are connected as pictured.
Start your wrap around piece by chaining 8
Follow the steps for making the foundation row and Tunisian Simple stitch until this piece is 9 rows long and bind off. Tie off yarn leaving a long tail. Use this tail of yarn to sew this piece around your chain stitches of the ear warmer. This will cinch the piece together-giving it a stylish knotted look
Step 6: Wear It!
The Tunisian Simple Stitch creates a really nice, dense fabric that is sure to keep you warm! Wear this for a stylish addition to your winter accessories.
