From time to time I choose one of my older patterns and test it again, take new photos and re-write the pdf in my current style. This crochet headband is one of my first designs and it finally deserved a makeover!
Back then, I was using more worsted yarn than bulky for my creations. Now I am going through “I love bulky yarn” phase, but some stitches look so good in worsted. It just gives a bit more detail and texture.
The crochet headband doesn’t have a name. It is especially difficult for me to name my designs, I don’t know why. I am not sure if I want to choose a theme for naming them or just something that fits the occasion. If you have a name suggestion I would love to hear it in the comments below.
You will need:
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet
fphdc: front post half double crochet
bphdc: back post half double crochet
