This pretty crochet headwrap features a star stitch texture and is simple enough for a beginning crocheter. You’ll be whipping out these warm, chunky ear warmers like crazy! These work up very quickly and would make a great project while catching up on your next Netflix episode.
I’ve found I have the best results using the ever popular Loops & Threads Facets, but you can use any Bulky (5) yarn.

If you don’t want to use the FSC cast on, you can do a normal cast on, join, and single crochet all the way around before starting Row 2. It works just fine, but won’t be as stretchy/springy.
Row 1: Cast on 53 [61/69] stitches and join in the round If you’re using a different hook or yarn weight, work your chain until it is the desired length. Just make sure you’re chaining in multiples of 2 +1. Be careful not to twist your chain while joining. See this video for tips on joining the foundation chain. (http://bit.ly/2fFSAh6)
Row 2: Chain 3, work your star stitch into second chain from hook
Row 3-6: Repeat Row 2 four or five more times (or until you’re happy with the height) I typically do 5 rows of star stitches, but feel free to add or subtract!
Row 7: Single crochet into each each stitch and bind off. Weave in ends and sew on a button or other embellishment if you’d like!
