This Crochet Headband is fast and easy to craft. You can choose colors to match your own wardrobe. Just by changing your hook size and the number of rows you add you can adjust the size of your headband. A headband is also another way that I use up yarn scraps. As you all know, I hate throwing away partially used yarn skeins. I also like to keep a little basket full of different types of flowers. Making a headband allows me to use up these scraps of yarn and at the same time make something useful. By adding different types of embellishment a plain headband can be dressed up. You can use roses, or another of type of flower.
Medium weight yarn in your choice of color.
