crocheted bow headband

I have been knitting for what seems like forever, and while I may not be the most even sticher, it comes fairly naturally at this point. Crocheting on the other hand, has evaded me for these past few years. I tried once before to make a scarf and it just didn’t work out at all. When I came across this pattern for a cute headband with a bow I felt it was time to try again.

Lucky for me the pattern was very easy to follow and surprisingly it came out almost exactly as it should. The hardest part was keeping the whole thing away from my cat, who kept trying to steal it from me as I worked. The yarn I used was a little bit bulky so everything ended up a little bit chunkier than I imagined, but it’s still cute. I also probably should have followed the instructions for gauge, but I have a tendency too ignore that bit.

Mostly it gave me the confidence to try some other crochet patterns. While I’ll always have a soft spot for knitting, there is something appealing about only having one tool and one loop to work with.

Do you have any easy crochet patterns that you love? I’d really like to try something new.

  1. I tried teaching myself how to crochet, but I failed miserably. I need to pick it up, again, and make a beautiful headband like this. I especially adore the button detail.

      My friend loves to try new crafts and most recently used youtube to teach herself to quilt. I was having trouble with a certain stitch and turned to youtube for help. Its really handy to have not only step by step but the visual as well. Wish you the best of luck with your crocheting. 🙂
