Free Pattern! cushion covers for you're favorite headphones

I have another free pattern for you today. Do you have a favorite pair of headphones that the cushions for your ears are falling apart? Seems like a waste to throw them away. I had some cotton candy pink yarn, leftover from my cupcake hat, (archived on this blog) It's very soft and "cushiony" a bulky weight yarn.I came up with this very easy, quick way to keep using my headset comfortably. Hope you'll try it. :)

A small amount (just a few yards) of whatever bulky weight yarn that suits you
size H crochet hook or whatever feels right with the yarn you have chosen
chain 6, join with a slip-stitch to form a ring
chain 3, 14 double crochets in the ring, join with a slip-stitch into the 3rd chain of the chain 3
chain 3, 2 double crochets in each stitch all the way around, join with a slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the chain 3 of the previous row
leaving about 18 " cut the yarn and thread it into a yarn needle ( a large eye blunt tipped needle)
Now weave your yarn in and out, all around the stitches of the last row.
place your cover onto the headphone cushion and if you have to, stretch to fit and cinch it closed
now just tie a secure knot and weave in the yarn tail to hide it.
note: if your headphone cushions are larger than mine, just add an extra row before ending.

If you have a questions, leave a comment here and I will try to answer it for you. Good Luck :)
