Evalyns Headband

Headband: with 1.65mm

CH 9 + 2

Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook and in next 3 stitches, CH2, skip the next 2 stitches, and DC in remaining 3 stitches

Row 2: CH2, turn, DC in the first 3 stitches, CH2, skip the CH2 space, DC in the last 4 stitches

Row 3: CH2, turn DC in the first 4 stitches, CH2, skip the CH2 space, DC in the last 3 stitches

Repeat row 2 and 3 until desired length is *reached. Do not finish off

* I like my length to fit around the head slightly loose because when you add in the contrasting stripe the headband will tighten up a bit.

Edging: Side facing while working edging will be your right side

CH1, (SC, Picot, SC) in side of a DC, repeat from *to* across edge of beginning CH.

Placing right side together, working in both the Base Chain and the last rows of DC, SLST together to sew the circle togetherEvalyns Headband - KatiDCreationsTurn right side out, CH1, (SC, Picot, SC) in side of DC around. Finish off

With hook on the right side of project and yarn (with beginning loop already formed) on the wrong side, place hook through any CH2 space (from front to back) and place beginning loop on hook and pull hook with loop on it to the right side.  You will still hold the yarn on the wrong side of the project.

Hipster Belt - KatiDCreationsDont forget to add it to your favorites it Raverly!

You ever have that moment when an idea ‘falls’ into your lap?  Well that is exactly what happened here!  I was packing my bag for a 6 hour drive and knew I was wanting to try to do a belt design….but nothing in was coming to mind.  (fast forward) Sitting in the car and still no ideas, and the fact that I was just sitting there doing nothing was making me nuts.  So I grabbed out a sketch book and began doodling.  At first it was looking like a traditional granny square, but then I figured why not try a flower looking design?!

So with that idea in mind I took off running….so to speak.  The first square took a bit to get the look right but once that was figured out the project moved quickly and if needed it could be accomplished in a day.

The granny squares join as you work so you don’t have to worry about messing with all the joining at the end.  I did my best to work the ends in as I worked which really helped eliminate the number of ends.
