Here is my newest crochet how-to! We are making this cute bow headband...
We will start by making two simple pieces: a rectangle and a long string. I used worsted weight yarn and a size H/5.0 mm crochet hook. You can use this same method with other yarns & hooks, the headband will just be bigger or smaller. Play around & try things out!
To make the rectangle:
1. Chain 15.
2. Work in double crochet for 4 rows.
3. Cut yarn, knot off, and weave in your ends.
To make the headband string:
1. Chain 90.
2. Check your head... is this enough stitches to reach around your head and tie? Adjust if necessary.
3. Work one row in single crochet.
To make the bow, scrunch the rectangle together in the middle. Take some extra yarn and wrap it around several times (4 or 5 times should do the trick). Don't cut the yarn yet!
Now position the bow on the headband string - a little off center so that it will sit on the side of your head. Continue wrapping the yarn, catching the headband string and making your headband into one piece. When the bow is secure, cut the yarn and knot it. Weave in the ends and you are finished!
