Hello and welcome to day four of this free crochet pattern advent calender. Today we have some thing a bit different to make,I've come up with a pattern for a nice winter warmer and prefect Christmas gift. This cobble stitch headband is a really quick make but with lovely results and just right to keep your ears warm on these chilly winter days.
