Last Minute Gift Idea: Knotted Headband *pattern*

My 2nd gift idea is a simple but really cute knotted headband.  These can be made in about 15 mins or so, so you can give them as gifts in groups of 2 or 3 to a few special girls in your life!  Its also a great way to get rid of some scrap yarn you may have laying around in your stash. Hope you enjoy :-)




Knotted Headband 
Created by Brittany for CreativeMe!

5.5mm hook
measuring tape

Make a chain about 120 inches longs (if the recipient is a child, chain around 80-95 inches.) tie off




I used a book to wrap the chain around




Wrap a separate piece of yarn around to make the 'knot'


Tie a knot and weave in the ends. Cut off an loose pieces and voila! You're done :-)

That could be converted to a chunky scarf pattern too! Thanks a lot!

Great hair pattern, but would work up nicely as a chunky scarf too. Thanks a lot.

Hi Brittany - I'm so glad I found you. I've been crocheting for 45 years. Hundreds of flannel baby blankets and purp bibs. Never individual iteams like this. I'm having so much fun. I have a very French granddaughter so I'm doing the French Beannie.

Hugs

How does the headband not come apart?I didn't understand from the tutorial what to do with the loose ends of your crocheted chain.

Laurie said...

So cute and so simple. It's fabulous! Thank you for sharing it.

Donna Askew said...

I tied the loose ends together. Then hid the tails in the knot. Great pattern. Fast, Fun, and Funky!

Maria Conroy said...

Brittany - this is a very inspiring pattern. I have always heard in order to never work a day in your life - just find something to do that you love. No telling where this door might lead you.
I think you are very gifted.

Lynne Clark said...

Karen Roth said...

Absolutely perfect! Thank you so much for sharing this idea.

Michelle Borden said...

These are awesome!! Great idea!!

Britti said...

Can you tell me the thickness that I need to wrap the chain around? Like the book - how long was it across? Because you know, I want it to fit my head correctly, you can't just wrap it around anything! You know what I mean? haha
Thanks!!

Christine said...

I like the idea! Why not just chain your 120" then slip stitch it to make a circle, then you can do a head wrap
