There is something so powerful about the colour red. In a way it sometimes seems like a sixth sense. That simple colour can hold so much feeling, power and beauty within it.
Red can also be quite the statement when it comes to fashion. I personally love wearing red, it’s probably one of the colours I wear the most! Due to this, I’ve even been named the ‘Lady in Red’ a few times haha
So yesterday I felt like creating something that I could wear, but that was also red. It took me a while before I thought of something… ok well actually my mum gave me the idea, but still I had to think for quite some time before she popped her head into the room and suggested it.
As always, here are the instructions! Hope you enjoy making this beautiful red headband!
I started of making a Slip Knot with 2 strands of yarn. Then chain a Chain Stitches long enough to go around you head. All the way to the top of your head and around to the nape of your neck.
Row 1~ Taking your crochet hook, push your hook through the second last stitch and make a single crochet. Crochet 9 more single crochets. Then crochet Half Double Crochets till you get to the last 10 stitches. Now crochet single crochets to the end of the row.
Row 2~ Crochet 2 up. Slip stitch into the first 10 stitches. Then crochet half double crochets till you get to the last 10 stitches. Slip stitch to the end of the row.
Row 3~ Same as row 1.
Row 4~ Same as row 2.
Row 5~ Same as row 1.
Row 6~ Same as row 2.
Row 7~ Same as row 1.
Now it’s time to single crochet all the way around, but
before you do tha you need to make a hole for the button. Chain one,
then single crochet in the first 2 stitches. chain 2, skip 2 stitches
then single crochet all the way around the headband. Fasten off.
Sew on a button where it should be.
After I finished my headband I started crocheting a pretty Rose Flower
Now attach the rose to the headband. Go to a mirror and put on your headband. Place the completed flower on the headband, and position it where you’d like it to be. Take the headband off and then sew the flower onto the headband.
I’d love to see it! Please Subscribe to my blog, it would really make my day!
