Colorado Ear Warmer Headband Crochet Free Pattern

I like to walk my dogs and 
even jog, sometimes.
There are so many wonderful walking trails here, 
I don't think I can walk them all. 
It has been fun exploring and finding new ones.

When it's cold I wear a hat, 
but when it is just cool I prefer
 a headband or ear warmer. 
It keeps my part from getting
 sun burned and if my ears get chilly,
 I can pull it over my ears.

Although this pattern has the 
Colorado Flag style, 
you can make it in any color or colors, 
and it is quick project.
It is perfect with school or team colors.
Please, show this pattern some Love,
And make it a favorite on

Change to C4, ch 3, 1 dc in the same st, 2 dc in next 7 dc,
 tie off. weave in your ends. place on ear warmer and 
sew into place with matching yarn.

Button option:
St all in C4 and sew the button in the center 
of the appliqué before sewing it on ear warmer.
I really like the button because it adds a little 3d touch. 
A round yellow button would work, too.
As you can see it is a very stretchy headband.
 It would also be great worked in 
cotton for warmer weather.
