If you are anything like me, you would have impulsively bought a few balls of novelty yarn in the hope that one day you will find the perfect project for them. Before you know it, the novelty yarns are lost and forgotten in the stash for a few years. I’ve searched Ravelry several times trying to find the right project for these yarns. There’s a lot of novelty yarn scarves out there! Not my cup of tea though.
But I am excited to tell you that I’ve found the perfect project! I’ve recently discovered Craft Passion. She has several good tutorials and free patterns on her site that’s definitely worth checking out. The one that made me extra excited was her Crochet Hairbands (pattern).
All you need are your novelty yarns, hair ties and crochet hooks. If you can chain and double crochet, you can make this!
I experimented with different yarns together and used different sized crochet hooks for each combination.
Yarn: Moda Vera Chelsea and Twinkle
Hook: K / 6.5mm
Yarn: Lang Tonga and Fiddlesticks Mega
Hook: H / 5mm
Yarn: Moda Vera Twinkle and Fiddlesticks Mega
Hook: J / 6mm
I love them! They’re just so pretty and boy, were they quick to crochet!
Are your brains ticking over yet? Mine has!
These will make great last minute gifts for colleagues and teachers, stocking stuffers, gifts for new mums and the party hostess, party favours for birthday girls… Oh, the possibilities!
