Simple Headset Cozies

So you received this headset that you long for on your birthday? A shiny black, red, yellow (insert the colors you want) color that you wished remained it's shininess for ever? A foam cover that you wish will retain its softness so that you will always have that pleasurable music time? But you haven't. I haven't too. How I wish I knew about this before hand!

The picture above is my headset, I got this 2 years ago as a birthday present. Foams are still intact and I can somehow see some shine on it. Sorry if I exaggerated a bit. :D To prevent some serious damage in the future putting a headset cover is going to be a great help. This tutorial I made is super easy to follow. You may change the color if you want to. Because I love you all so much I've made 2 almost the same tutorial. One is using a No 3 yarn and the other one is using a No 4 yarn.

My brother loves it!


For the first tutorial please follow the steps below.

Materials Used:
Red Heart Handknitting and Crochet Yarn
Susan Bates Crochet hook  G6/4.00mm
Blunt Needle

To start, make a magic circle. Stephanie made a photo tutorial on how to make a magic circle here. You may also watch the video below:



R1: Chain 2, 10 dc in loop sl st in top of ch2. 10 dc
R2: Chain 2, *2 dc in next st* around, sl st in top of ch2. 20dc
R3: Chain 2, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* around, sl st in top of ch2. 30dc
R4: Chain 2, *dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next st* around, sl st in top of ch2. 40dc
R5: Chain 2, *dc in next st* around, sl st in top of ch 2. 40dc
 R5.1: Then continuously sl st around. Cut the yarn and fasten off using the blunt needle. Slip Stitching in the last row will create a chain like effect. 


For the second tutorial please follow the steps below.

Materials Used:
Red Heart Super Saver in Hot Red
Susan Bates Crochet hook 5.00mm
Blunt Needle

Steps:
Start with a magic circle
R1: Chain 2, 10 dc in loop sl st in top of dc. 10 dc
R2: Chain 2, *2 dc in same st* around, sl st in top of dc. 20dc
R3: Chain 2, *dc in same st, 2 dc in next st* around, sl st in top of dc. 30dc
R4: Chain 2, *dc in same* around, sl st in top of dc. 30dc
 R4.1 Slip stitch around. Cut the yarn and fasten off using the blunt needle. 

Note: If you notice on the 1st tutorial it says sl st in top of ch 2 and on the a 2nd tutorial it says sl st on dc. It actually does not have a big impact on the project. I just want to show you the 2 ways in joining the round. :)
