I’ve been looking for small , speedy projects lately as I’ve been very pressed for time. So I had a play with my yarn stash and came up with this quick and easy hairband, modelled here by my lovely sister (and her Scottie, May)
I chose a Rico variegated cotton (my rainy day Manchester impulse buy) and got to work.
I then skipped 2 more chain spaces and worked 5 trebles into the next chain space.Before skipping 2 more chain spaces and working a double crochet into the next chain space. I repeated this until the end of the row of chain, ending with a double crochet. Next, I turned my crochet upside down and worked 5 trebles into the same chain space as before. I then continued working (1 double, skip 2 chain, 5 trebles, skip 2 chain) all the way to the end of the row ending with a double.
I joined the Hairband ends together with a slip stitch and it was ready to wear.
It turned out to be a nice sized, wearable design. Yay!
It turns out my head is bigger than my sister’s (!) so I added in an extra shell when I made one for me. I also wear mine as a necklace and bracelet. I love how adaptable crochet can be. And I really love a quick project.
