I need new climbing shoes, lucky readers,
like really bright teal ones that So Ill makes so pretty much the last thing I need to spend money on right now is the heating bill.
So I’m swaddling myself in extra layers, including this headband, which is one piece of acceptable “I don’t turn my heating on” clothing you can leave the apartment with without people thinking you’ve given up (sorry Hanes men’s XL sweatpants, I still love you). which I haven’t.
I’ve made quite a few hats this winter…but I always end up with a little leftover chunky yarn that I don’t know what to do with, so I started playing with a couple of ideas. First of all, I prefer asymmetry…like I hang pictures off-center on purpose, I triple pierced only one of my ears, you get the idea…so that’s a thing. And then I also really love the look of fpdc/bpdc and the way it accentuates the already chunky texture of a chunky yarn and I’m saying chunky way too much right now. chunky. Then I also like glitter because duh who doesn’t, and was like what if I mixed a little Vanna’s glamour into the mix.
so uh add all that up and what we have here is the GAC headband…glittery asymmetrical chunky headband…I need to hire someone just to name stuff for me because the new lows we are reaching are…we are definitely in correction territory here on MIL blog too yikes.
I mean, it could be cool, you know, just gonna throw on my G-A-C and …not even going to finish that sentence.
have a happy weekend, luckies,
* I needed additional yardage when I created the ear warmer with Loopy Mango yarn, which is thicker than the Thick&Quick.

What I used
The GAC: Glittery Asymmetrical Chunky Crochet Ear Warmer Pattern
Row 1: With both chunky and Vanna’s Glamour yarns together, ch 38 (this gave me about 19″, a length the fits my head snuggly but not too tightly, you may have to adjust accordingly, any EVEN ch count will work), sl st in starting ch to join. Do not twist.
Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, sl st into top of ch 3 to join
Row 3: repeat row 2
Row 4: ch 3, alternate fpdc/bpdc around, sl st into top of ch 3 to join
Rows 5-6: repeat row 4, ensure fpdc stitches align with prior row, finish off.
you may add extra fpdc/bpdc rows to achieve the width you prefer. If you can’t live without symmetry, add a final row with regular dc in each st around.
