This is a very simple pattern that I found on Ravelry. The pattern can be found here. It is by blogger Frayed Knot. You can actually modify it by increasing the stitch row to adjust the width. I had to because of the yarn weight I used. The cactus flower headwrap was crocheted with Lion Brand Amazing yarn which is 1.75 oz weight and required an increase to 14 stitches wide. The Ozark forest wrap is made with Lion Brand Tweed and I increased to a 14 stitch wide wrap because of how tight I crocheted the stitches. The woodland tweed is also made from the Lion Brand Tweed and kept it at the 12 stitch wide pattern. This is an easy 1 hour project and great for a quick Christmas gift. I have a few nieces that will benefit from this pattern. :-) Plus my scarf thief has now also became a headwrap thief. I hadn't even sewn the button on the Cactus Flower one before my daughter snatched it up!
Since my DD wants to always own the items I crochet, she was commissioned as my head model! She added a little whimsical to the look by adding leopard spots to her makeup!
I have also made a couple of scarves to go along with the headwraps. I had already made a woodland tweed scarf, you might remember it from this post. It is an easy granny square scarf.
I made a scarf out of the Ozark forest colored yarn as well. It is the Spring Petal Scarf pattern. I loved how the sc and dc stitch combination makes this gorgeous shell.
Last, but not least, I completed the Tunisian Crochet Scarf! It turned out great. I did this one up without a pattern, but it is a pretty basic stitch. I just did 2 rows of Tunisian simple stitch, a row of Tunisian reverse stitch, and then Tunisian double crochet until I reached the length I wanted and ended it the same way I began. I made it into an infinity scarf mainly because Tunisian crochet really rolls up at the ends. I added a few buttons as well.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I'm linking up with Tami's blog again this Friday. Please take a moment and check out other FOs!
Just a quick pic of what I woke up to this morning.
