I wish I could tell you exactly what yarn I used but I lost the little sleeve that goes around the yarn. I do remember that it is a wool blend, like just 20% wool. And it is a size 5 yarn, so a bulky. But, you could easily hold 2 strands of worsted weight yarn together and get something pretty close. I have done that before myself :) And I used a size J hook.
Start by making a chain of 24 and turn
Row 1: In the 6th chain from hook *make 4 double crochets, chain 2, 1 double crochet* (all in the 6th chain). Skip next 6 chains and repeat from *to* , skip another 6 chains and repeat from * to * you should now have 4 chains left, skip 3 chains and double crochet in the last chain. Turn
Row 2: Chain 2. Skip 2 double crochets. In the chain 2 space repeat * to * in row 1. Skip next 5 double crochets, in the chain 2 space repeat *to*. Repeat this step one last time. End with double crochet in turning chain. Turn
Repeat row 2 until desired length.
See.... told you it was easy! ;-)
The adorable little head band/ear warmer that you see me wearing in the picture came from this pattern... http://pardonmychaos-amanda.blogspot.com/2011/11/back-at-it.html
I really liked this pattern, it worked up fast and is super cute! I just added a flower for a little girly appeal :)
