Crochet Corner - Crocheted Headband

I didnt use a pattern. All I did was make a chain that would fit my head and double crochet until it was the width I wanted. Then on my small peach loom I made a flower.  This is my second finished crochet item. the other was the Star Stitch Headband

My next project is awareness ribbon headbands ( made 2 ribbons so far) and tiny towels and I plan on crocheting some jewelry as well. But I am still a loom knitter at heart :)  I will loom big projects. Crocheting a scarf will take too long and hurt my hands ......  


I hope you like the headband. It was fun to make.   If you have any questions , please comment below. 





and as always..... 

Doing good pays off

I made these washcloths for House of Hope in Rhode Island. They run the state’s largest men’s night to night shelter as well as two transitional shelter programs (one for men and one for women). I only made 3 for  the ravellenic games on Ravelry. Planning on making many more for House of Hope.
