Crochet HeadBand with Flower Made From T-Shirt
Crocheted with Tarn (T-shirt Yarn)
The other night I suddenly felt like I want to try crocheting tarn (t-shirt yarn). So I looked for some of husband's worn out shirt and made some tarn. And the idea of making a headband just popped into my head since I really want to one ever since. It's a very simple headband, took me less than hour to make, if I would not include the time it took me to figure out what closure to use. ^^,
What I Used
1/4-in thick tarn from a white shirt
1 white button (from my husband's worn-out uniform)
5 in garter
3/0-4/0 double-pointed aluminum crochet hook (I used the 3/0 side)
1 tapestry needle for weaving ends
1 sewing needle for sewing the button, garter and flower.
white sewing thread
yellow textile paint
Ch 120, equivalent to a length from behind my left ear to the back of my right ear.
Ch 1, sc in all 120 chs. Ch 1, turn.
3sc, ch 114, 3 sc on the other end. Ch 1, turn.
120 sc. Break off and weave in ends.
I crochet the flower using this pattern. This flower is part of my experiment to combine various free crochet flower patterns on the net that I really loved. I used only white tarn for this so I colored the petals with yellow textile paint.
Sew the flower on the head band.
On one end sew the button and on the other end the garter.
