My sister has been asking me for one of these for about a year now. She almost bought one on her way over Monday for "SHT" (Sister Hang Time). Thankfully she decided to tell me about how she almost bought one, thinking I would get the hint, but what she didn't already know is I finally made one for her, with flowers.
I have made a few of these for some of my customers. They are really easy to make.
I used Loops and Threads Black Charisma Yarn.
I used a medium knitting loom.
First start out by wrapping your yarn around each peg in an "e".
Purl knit the next stitch. Slip your tool under the top loop at the outside of the loom peg, grab the bottom loop and pull it up through the top loop. Use your hook to pull what used to be the top loop over the top of the peg and replace what was the bottom loop on the peg.
Then the on the third row you will e wrap again.
If your more hands on, then watch this video.
GoodKnitKisses is a great teacher!
So basically knit purl, next row: e wrap.
Do this for four rows.
Then just e wrap the remaining time.
I e wrapped for approximately
5 1/2 inches and then pulled the bottom up through the loom and put each loop onto each peg.
Then pull the bottom row over the top loops.
This will double the headband and keep your ears extra toasty!
To cast off, I e wrap each peg then knit over, and then e wrap it and knit again and then remove it from the loop from the peg and place it onto the peg next to it. Remember to e wrap and knit twice on each peg before moving it over to the next peg. Doing this twice will make it just a tad looser. Only e wrapping once will make it too tight and it won't fit on your forehead. On the last peg cut the yarn leaving a half inch tail.
Repeat one last time two e wraps, then
Wrap the yarn around the peg one more time and feed the yarn though the loop, to make a knot.
With a crochet hook or your yarn needle, hide the tail into the headband.
Now for the Flowers...
As you can see I added a clip to the back of each one so you can change them out :)
To make these flowers:
Crochet a foundation chain of four stitches using a size J or K hook for the thicker yarns. For regular worsted- weight yarn I use a H hook and chain 5 chains.
Slip stitch into the first chain to join the foundation chain into a ring. Chain one and single crochet 8 times into the ring to form the center of your flower. Slip stitch into the chain stitch to join the round.
Instead of a double crochet you can do a single and then crochet 2 instead of 3 between each single crochet.
One the 3rd flower chain 3 and do single crochets again and two chains between each single crochet.
The pedal won't be as big, but... it will way less holey. I did that on the gray flower and the pink multicolored flower.
Hope this tutorial has helped, and can't wait to see your creations! Don't forget to invite me to see yours.
Thanks for tuning in! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
Until next time...
