This is pretty monumental. This is the first pattern that I have ever written, and I am pretty darn proud of it!
I was inspired by a request from a friend to make a headband that she had found on Pinterest.
Of course I didn't have a pattern, but I had made crochet bows and headbands before and I thought I could probably wing it. Turns out, I was totally capable :)
I learned how to crochet off of free patterns and I always vowed that I would return the favor by offering up any patterns that I came up with for free as well. So... here she is...
*** This pattern is intended for personal use only, please ***
Worsted weight yarn of any color (I used Red Heart Soft acrylic yarn in Turquoise)
Size I/5.5 mm crochet hook
Fits 22-23" circumference
dc= double crochet
sl st= slip stitch
ch 40 then...

If any crochet experts have any advice on how to improve the pattern, I greatly appreciate it :) Enjoy!
Oh, and FYI to anyone that made it to the bottom of the post... I'm going to be hosting a BRAND NEW GFC link up with my lovely friends Autumn from The Busy Bee and Heidi from Mustache Mama, going LIVE Sunday at 7:00 PM. Spread the word :)
