I started crocheting a little last summer while I was pregnant. I forgot all about my mad skillz that I acquired until Christmas time rolled around. One of my friends reminded me how awesome it is.
The bow tie I made Carver (see here), was super easy, however it was NOT my idea. I found the pattern over on Delia's blog.
Anyways, I said all of that to say that I am no crochet professional! It's just a fun hobby. I made a pattern for a little hair bow head band. Seriously the easiest thing you'll ever crochet and it takes about five minutes, maybe ten.
I used the "I" crochet hook, although it really doesn't matter!
HDC-half double crochet
I started with the bow first.
row one: CH 12
row two: in the 2nd chain from hook, SC to the end
row three: CH 1, turn, HDC to the end
Repeat desired times (I did five rows)
For the headband part, CH 65 (or just measure it around your head) and ST the ends together. Leave both tails intact.
Weave the tails of the headband into your rectangle and tie.
Cut the ties to be a bit shorter.
Wrap yarn around middle of the rectangle, creating your bow.
AND YOU'RE DONE!
Seriously, the easiest thing you'll ever do.
Let me know if you have any questions, I'm the queen of unclear instructions!
