Keep your doll’s head warm all winter long with this cute Valentine Headband Earwarmer American Girl doll crochet pattern. It’s simple enough for a beginning crocheter as long as you know the basics.
With Valentines Day quickly approaching, I wanted to share a couple of Valentine’s Day doll crafts with my readers. Over the weekend, I was doing some crocheting for my daughters’ dolls and came up with this Valentine Headband Earwarmer crochet pattern. It is quick and easy to complete. I made about 4 of them in a couple of hours, trying to get the pattern just right.

I recommend completing the first round of the Valentine Headband earwarmer crochet pattern and then trying it on your doll to check the fit. Everyone crochets differently, some produce tighter stitches than others. If need be, you can remove some of the starting chains or add more. When adjusting the pattern up or down, be sure to add or subtract from the middle 34 stitches in each round. You want to keep the 5 beginning and endings stitches that create the thinner band that goes under the hair.
Heart Embellishment Crochet Pattern:
With red yarn, Ch 2. Work all stitches in 2nd ch from hook. Work 5 hdc, 4 dc, ch 1, sl st, ch 1, 4 dc, 4 hdc. Join with sl st to first hdc of round and finish off. Pull yarn tight to close up the hole in the center.
Sew the heart embellishment to the side of the headband earwarmer, referring to picture for placement.
