DIY Crochet Head Band

I’ve been slighty obsessed with crocheted headbands this year :) I must admit I bought one before attempting to make one. After examining the stitch pattern I realized I could probably make one myself. I have a ton of yarn hanging around my house..I’m a sucker for a good sale at Hobby Lobby. So I set off to make my first attempt.

What I learned…

It’s not as easy as it looks. I couldn’t get my v to v and it ended up being squared off instead of the v shape I wanted.

You might want to make sure you have enough yarn. I eyeballed mine and ran out at the 75% complete mark.

But! It took Thomas Edison more than one try with the lightbulb so I shall keep trying till I get it right :)

Here’s the pattern I was working from :) {found on http://4tdesignscrochetheadwrappattern.blogspot.com/}

I tried again! (With a square pattern..) Got the most perfect 2nd try headband. I was using an amazing yarn I bought on a trip to Myrtle Beach a few months ago. It’s smoother than a baby’s butt and glides through your fingers. There’s a lovely little shop tucked away that is home to the dearest little ladies and the best yarns around. It’s called Island Knits if you’re ever close by stop in! I bought two of the salmoncoral color and I wish I’d bought more.

Here’s a looksy at my headband. I’ve only to finish making the flower for the top and add the button :)

PS: Baby O is growing like a weed! Had lunch with his adorable self yesterday. I was so excited to see him wrapped in his bubble blanket that Aunt Kat made :) I always wonder if the crocheted blankets I make get used. His mom told me it was by far his fav :) YAY!

XoXo!

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Bless you!

    1. Hi,
      Tips for aspiring writers..write about things that your passionate about :) write about current events and write consistently (something I’m working on!). As far as starting a new website, there are a ton of great options out there for you. I’d start with a free service if it suits what you are looking for. Otherwise, WIX is a great company to use. They have lots of options and it’ll cost you about $10 a month. I’m a huge fan of WordPress as a content management system. I’m currently switching my professional website over to WordPress.
      Hope this helps!

  2. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.

    1. Thanks! The theme is called Adele and it’s a free theme through WordPress. I’ve customized it slightly. I’m currently coding a new layout for my blog but it’s taking a bit longer than I anticipated.

    1. Hi! I modified the pattern based on a few tries. Thanks for the compliments! Everything I write about is my own opinion. I don’t receive any financial sponsorships for my blog at this point :)

  4. I do consider all the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They are really convincing and can certainly work.
    Still, the posts are too brief for beginners.

    Could you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
