I finished my Headband/Earwarmer this week. I'm so excited to have this project done and have a cute hat to wear on our cold nights. I think it's funny to see a winter hat next to such pretty green but it's Florida.
Here's a close up of the flower. My favorite part of course. I also like that it looks like a hat but it's not.
And this is how it closes in the back.
I made the Headband using this Winter Star Stitch Headband Earwarmer pattern from Tanya'sTangles.
This was my first time ever following a crochet pattern. I discovered a whole world of lingo that I didn't know existed. It can be tricky to trying to decipher the code sometimes. I learned how to crochet when I was little, but for a refresher on how to do the stitches I searched You Tube and found the KnitWitch. She had a video of all the stitches and gives sometimes give general pattern reading advice in the comments below the video.
For the yarn I used the left over from my Halloween wreath. It might look a little prettier with nicer yarn, but
I like it anyway. My stylist Mer (who was also my photographer) thinks I should be wearing my hair up when I wear this. I'll try that next time.
Sadly, my sewing machine is currently in the shop. It died a week ago. I'm hoping it's a quick fix because I bought some other patterns I'm anxious to sew up and some baby gifts too.
Bye for now!!
