Ola’s Boho Chic Headband
Like most people these days, I spend a lot of time looking on Pinterest for projects, inspiration, and development. Usually when I’m searching for crochet projects, I come across some gorgeous lacy design that’s just a chart or a picture linking to a website in Portuguese, Spanish, or Russian. Although I’m fluent in Spanish, the other two languages are just too far off from it that I can’t decipher what anyone is trying to do.
This time, I came across a simple chart with no explanations, no project linked to it, nothing. I thought, “That would be a really cute headband for Ola!” So I sat down and muddled through the diagram and figured out how to make something similar looking and thought I’d share the project.
What you’ll need:
- A ball of “Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread” in the Classic 10 size or any lace weight yarn
- A steel crochet hook, size 7 (1.5mm) or whatever hook matches the gauge for the yarn you’re using
- Scissors (to cut thread when you’re finished)
- A poly/clear ponytail band
Gauge isn’t important here though, because the length of the headband will depend on the size of the head you’re making it for. Ola’s little head is about 17″ around (for now).
Crochet Techniques You’ll Use:
- ch – chain
- sl st – slip stitch
- tr – treble crochet
Attach both ends of your work to a poly band however you’d like and that’s it!
