Using the yarn and crochet hook, make a chain that is the desired length. The headband pictured measured 14” long, and fit a newborn just right.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

To make the headband for an older child, or adult, just make the chain the appropriate length.

Add the Pearl

To attach the pearl, string the pearl onto a length of beading thread. Choose a spot on the headband where you’d like it to sit, and simply stitch in on. Weave the ends of the beading thread through the chain for security. Cut threads.

Elegant Knit Cowl {Knitting}: Free Pattern

This is a gorgeous knit cowl pattern that is very easy to make, and an ideal project for beginning knitters! Perfect for gift giving, and everyday wear.

free knitting pattern easy cowl

Supplies:

1 Skein of Loops & Threads Cozy Wool (Or a comparable super bulky weight yarn)

Size US 17 Single Point Needles

Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:

St: stitch

K: knit

Size: One size; child/teen/ladies.

Gauge: 1.75-2 sts/inch in Garter Stitch

Note: This cowl is knit width-wise, meaning the length around the neck. To make it slouchier, work the piece until it’s a longer length.

Cowl

Cast on 24 stitches using the Long Tail Cast-On Method, or method of your choice.

Row 1: Knit each stitch across.

Repeat row 1 until cowl measures 22 to 24 inches. I worked until I had just enough of the skein of yarn left to bind off and sew the seam.

NOTE: If you’d like the cowl to be wider, therefore hanging a little more loosely around the neck, then continue to knit until you reach the desired width.

Bind off stitches.

Weave in ends.

Using matching yarn and a tapestry needle, and your preferred method for seaming, sew the two short ends together to close.

Slip it on to be stylish and cozy!!


Little Bow {Crochet}: Free Pattern

I love to make these and attach them to hair clip blanks, or regular store bought, plain hair clips. They look very cute on hats, mittens, and other accessories! (Hat pattern not included--bow only)

free crochet pattern easy bow

Supplies:

Worsted Weight Yarn

Size H Crochet Hook

Tapestry Needle

Bow

Chain 17.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook, *sc in next ch; repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2-9: (working in back loop only): *sc in next st; repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn.

Fasten off after row 9, and weave in ends.

Pinch the bow in the center, making it take its shape as a bow. Using matching yarn (or contrasting, if you prefer), wind the yarn around the center “pinched” section until you’re happy with how it looks. I like to wind mine quite a few times for a nice, solid center.

Cut the yarn, and tie a knot in the back. Weave in your ends.

Now you can either secure the bow to a hat (or any other accessory that you like), or attach a hair clip/barrette blank. To do that, I open the barrette blank and insert the top part of it underneath the wrapped yarn that made the middle section of the bow. You’re finished!

Row 3: *Dc in next sc, sc in next dc; repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece measures approximately 9 inches.

Fasten off.

Attach one or two button to the end that you finished with, not the starting end of a full row of dc. The row of dc (row 1) will act as your button holes.

Wrap around your coffee cup, and enjoy!
