IMPORTANT NOTE

Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Sunflower Headband (free crochet pattern)


As I was untangling organizing my scrap yarn, I was pondering mt next project. I didn't have enough yarn to make something big. Just little bits here and there. I thought about a hat, but I just made some about a month ago. I finally decided I would make a quick headband.

I remembered pinning a headband pattern, or two on pinterest. I wanted to add a flower, too. I pinned some of those as well. I don't know if you all do this, but I frequently pin things, then go back and look at the actual post later. Well, this was one of those times. I was really wishing that I had at least peeked at some of them before attempting to make something on my own, as I draw inspiration from other works. BUT, with one of the computers on the fritz and the other being used, I couldn't even peek at them, let alone the pictures I repinned. I had to go this one alone.

I tried a few different things for the headband. Having just worked with a net stitch on a blanket I made, I wanted to try one with the headband. I wasn't liking it much, so I altered it. The result was much better.

When it came to the flower, I had originally intended to do a simple little flower like the one on the poncho that I made or one like I used in the tic-tac-toe game I made. When I was deciding on the color, I saw the little bit of brown yarn and the bright yellow yarn that I had. It screamed Sunflower. I love sunflowers. They are so pretty! So, I decided to try to make one. My first attempt was actually pretty good. I had to mess with the petals a couple of times to get them the way I wanted, but after that little hurdle, it was much easier. Once it was finished, though, I thought it was way too big. I changed the stitches and altered the pattern and made a smaller one... it was the perfect size for the headband!
