I knocked out more than 50 of these babies for the first booth I had at the Renegade craft fair. They don't take a lot of time to whip up, and are a great beginner project for you budding crocheters out there.
*1 Ball of Cotton Yarn in a fun color (I used Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Worsted Cotton)
*5mm crochet hook (I like the Clover hooks)
*A cute button
*Embroidery thread closely matching your yarn
First, let's learn the coolest trick for starting a double crochet project. This will change your life. No more boring foundation chains! Go master this technique and come back to me. Okay, got it? Now lets make a headband!
Double crochet into the top of the 2nd stitch from the base of the turning chain.
Continue on until you reach the end of the row, and then slip stitch down the side and around the edge of your first row.
Now rummage in your button jar and find a cute one that is the right size to fit through your stitches, but not too small that it won't "latch." Now use your embroidery thread and needle, and sew it on at the end of one side, making sure it is lined up to push nicely through a stitch on the other end. Adjust to size and wear with pride!
Daily Dog - HOMERBlue Dog Rescue. He has just realized that he loves to swim, so he could have a lot of fun with you at the lake this summer! Go meet him this weekend!
