Amid the hustle and bustle though, it's very rewarding to be able to choose a project and have it completed within an hour.
What you'll need:
5.5 mm crochet hook
8 ply yarn (we've used Bendigo Woollen Mills "Classic" in "Lipstick Rose" )
The stitch is Criss Cross Puff Stitch and the pattern and video is available at New Stitch a Day
Chain 64 (if you want to increase or decrease the size, add or subtract chains in multiples of two)
Single Crochet the entire chain. When complete, slip stitch into the first Single Crochet to form circle being careful not to twist the work.
Crochet row using Criss Cross Puff Stitch until 6 single crochets from the previous row remain. Single crochet six times into previous row.
Complete entire row using Criss Cross Puff Stitch.
As per Row 2
Row 5: Reverse work and single crochet the entire row - this ensures the foundation chain matches the finishing chain. Finish work and weave in ends.
Don't feel the need to stick to a five row headband, I think this would be very effective with a couple more rows of puffs, particularly if you're planning to make it for cooler weather.
Thanks so much for visiting. We'd love to have you join us on Facebook , Pinterest, Ravelry and instagram too.
