Crochet Luxe Wristwarmer and Headband Set Pattern

I recently wrote a review of Zealana Luxuria Air Marle, a DK yarn, and in the process wrote a pattern. Since the yarn used is a luxury yarn, this prudent pattern uses only 1 ball or about 120 yards. The pattern includes both around the post stitches as well as front and back loop stitches, so you will want to follow those links and learn about them if you haven't already. Are you ready to make your own Luxe Set? Grab your 4mm hook and here we go!
