Reflective in the Dark Headband

IMG_4943

What a beautiful headband (pattern teaches a new stitch called ‘foundation single crochet‘ or esc). Thank you, Hooks and Heels for  creating this pattern and sharing it with the rest of the world. After making a couple of headbands using the original pattern, we decided to readjust it to the RED HEART Reflective brand. The yarn is a lot thicker, so math did not work out on the sizing. Also, living in Alaska and having most of the […]
