Crochet Pattern: Simple Mesh Headband



This is my latest complete project. I wanted to try to make a headband but I had my eye on a mesh-like design instead of it being solid. The yarn was Caron Simply Soft. My result ended with a long headband.

Headband:

Chain 25

1. Slip stitch into the 10th chain from hook.

*Chain 5, skip next 4 stitches, slip stitch* in the next chain. repeat. End with a slipstitch in the last chain. Turn.

2. Chain 5, slip stitch in 3rd chain of each 5 chain space (middle) * repeat to the last. Turn.

Repeat #2 until your desired length.
Cut and weave in the ends.

Strap:

I started at the third hole on the side.

1. Slip stitch every chain in that hole. Chain 2-3. Double crochet in next 4 stitches. Turn.

2. Single crochet 4 times. Turn. 

Repeat #2 until it's long enough to tie around your head.



Sew a button on the end and you can push it through one of the holes to keep it together.

Crochet Pattern: Rainbow with Clouds Scarf


Rainbow Scarf with Clouds pattern


It's been 9 years since I originally made this scarf for a craft swap. I was trying to figure out what I could make with my current supplies at the time. I just grabbed leftover balls of yarn to create it which meant not every color had the same weight/brand. This is finally getting the revision it desperately needs. The original pattern I'll keep at the bottom of the post and I'll explain why.

Revision: June 6, 2018

Rainbow Scarf 
H hook

Start off with as many chains you want for length.

(The scarf I made here had 235 chains for a very long scarf that could wrap around the neck twice and hang long.)


Pink: Half Double crochet across until the end. Turn.
Chain 2. Single crochet across until end.

Orange: Chain 3. Half double crochet across until the end. Turn.

Yellow: Chain 3. Half double crochet across until the end. Turn.

Green: Chain 3. Half double crochet across until the end. Turn.

Blue: Chain 3. Half double crochet across until the end. Turn.

Purple: Chain 3. Half double crochet across until the end. Turn.
Chain 2. Single crochet across until end. Tie off.

Weave in all the ends.

Clouds
H hook

Note: Original clouds looked like a flower with 7 pieces. Total 14 pieces made.
The revision has +2 more pieces to create asymmetrical clouds.


White:
Double crochet 6 times into magic ring. Sl st together.

Chain 2. Double crochet twice (increase) in each stitch around. 
Sl st together to join and tie off.

Assembly:

Pin two circles together. A weaving needle is easier to use for these. Grab the outer loop only when you attach pieces instead of going through both. You will have 1 circle in the center and 6 other circles surrounding it to look like a flower. In the revised pattern, I have flipped over the clouds so it looks puffy against the scarf.

Why the revision?

I made this scarf specifically for using up leftover yarn. I had at least 3 different yarn weights which made it uneven if I did the same amount of single crochet rows. If you are trying to use up small balls of yarn like me then you can follow this pattern loosely.

If you have a thicker yarn, you could get away with a row of double crochet or two single crochet rows.

If the yarn is on the thinner side, you'll need to do extra rows to create each color as "even" as possible if that's what you're looking for.


Rainbow:

Start off with as many chains you want for length.

Red/Pink: Chain 3. Single crochet across until the end. Turn.
Chain 3. Double crochet across. Turn.

Orange: Chain 3, single crochet across. Turn.
Chain 3, single crochet across. Turn.

Yellow: Chain 3, double crochet across. Turn.

Green: Chain 3, half double crochet across. Turn.

Blue: Chain 3, double crochet across. Turn.
Chain 3, double crochet across. Tie off.

Weave in all the ends! :(


You will be making 7 circular pieces that will be sewn together for the clouds. I recommend to attach the pieces using white yarn and secure it tighter by sewing with white thread.


Clouds:
You can use a smaller hook to get the circles more tight and flat.

White yarn:
Chain 3, Double crochet 6 times into 2nd chain from hook.
Chain 3. Double crochet twice (increase) in each stitch around. Join and tie off.
