I have wanted to do a super simple crocheted headband for a long time, with optional cutsy things to add to it.
After thinking about it and putting it off, I finally started working on it, and now (I'm typing this as I pat myself on the back) I'm done with the whole project!!!!!
Wahoo!!! Woot! Woot!The crochet headband is so easy. It uses only a single crochet stitch and a chain stitch.
So let's get started. I used a size "I" crochet hook and you can use any regular yarn or "Soft" yarn too. I used Caron Simple Soft yarn.
Here's a link for a youtube howto video I did that shows how to crochet the headband step-by-step:
For a 1 1/2" wide headband, start with 6 chain stitches and do 5 single crochet stitches per row.
For a 2" wide headband, start with 8 chains and do 7 single crochet stitches per row.
If you want to make some headbands with crochet thread, I used size 3 crochet thread and an "F" crochet hook. For a 1" wide headband, you will start with 5 chains and work 4 sc for each row.
I will talk about the poinsettia, heart, and butterfly in my next post.
Make some headbands fast so you will be ready to add the accessories (heart, poinsettia, butterfly, flower) to them.
I want to thank my cute lil' 2 year old granddaughter for modeling for me. She really liked the poinsettia on her hairband. She liked the heart too. She likes the butterfly best, but I didn't get a pic of that one on her. Just gotta love her wild red hair!
She is an angel! (and a spitfire too -- ha, ha)
