It is so easy.....
to crochet a headband and I've tried a lot of different strategies. The easiest one that I do is
to start with a magic ring with sc in the ring, ^
Then I chain about 40 and start increasing stitches , sometime by sc and sometime dc
to desired lengh and then start decreasing by crochet 2 together until I have one stitch left. chain 40 and end by making a ring in the previous chain and fasten off
Here is mine that I posted previously
I used Elle premier double knit natural cotton for the flowers and stringing, and a 3.5 mm crochet hook.
Pattern for the flower
Make a magic ring with 7 sc , sl st in last sc, ch 1
row 1: 2 sc in each sc in the circle , sl st in last ch, ch 1
row 2: In the next sc make 2 dc ch 1, sl st in next sc, ch 1 - 7 times and then sl st in the first ch. fasten off
This is my flower!
I also made a few mesh type beanies that seemed a favorite of the young crowd
Other news is that I just finished writing my book, I will keep updates here on the blog too.
