I seem to make this blogging thing look pretty cool because another one of my friends has started a blog! 🙂 (haha, and it is totally the cool thing to do so if you’ve been thinking about starting a blog, I highly encourage it!) Anyway, Yvonne is my BFF that I feel like I’ve known my entire life except we only just met last year AND we met because of my blog! Every time we get together we talk for at least 5 hours, it’s ridic and totally hilarious. Our husbands can not believe how much we have to talk about! Anyway, she’s also an amazing wedding photographer (we have that in common as well as a shoe and vintage jewelry obsession) and she started her style blog recently so please go check her out over at modern girl. I DIE for her pink Christmas tree!!
Done with the gushing, onto today’s post! I was asked to do a winter accessory video so was happy to pull out all my fun hats, scarves and gloves to show you guys. I have a crazy amount of scarves but I didn’t want the video to be all about my scarves so I left it to just two but I could have gone a lot longer with just my scarves! 🙂
In the video I showed you a headband/head warmer that I made and for those of you that crochet here’s the pattern I used: (even if you’ve never crocheted before, this is a good beginner pattern to start with)
Stretchy Head Warmer pattern:
Row 1: ch 12 (or however wide you want it), sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across
Row 2: ch 1, turn, in back loops only, sc in each sc across
Repeat row 2 until it wraps around your head. Be aware that this pattern allows it to be stretchy so don’t make it too big because it continues to stretch after you take it on and off a couple of times. (I made my first one WAY too big and it keeps on stretching!)
To finish, use a yarn needle and sew the last row to the first.
For the bow, I just made a smaller version of the above pattern until it was a size I liked and then wrapped a string of yarn around the middle to make it look bow like and then stitched it to the head warmer.
I finished making this one after I made the video. Didn’t it come out so dang cute? I love it! I used the same pattern for the headband and this flower pattern from Drops Design.
