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 :-)

Last Minute Gift Idea: Quick & Easy Scarf *pattern*

Christmas will be here before you know it and if you're like me, there's always those last few people that come to mind at the last minute and you have no gift for them!! I plan on doing a little series of last minute gift ideas you can crochet within 2-3 days... who doesn't love a homemade gift??!!

This scarf will be long enough to double up or long enough to be a gift for any tall person or a guy!
