Crochet Butterfly Flutterby Headband
Last week for international crochet day I posted my Mandala for Marinke and have been staring at the butterflies since thinking what should I make with them next? The possibilities are endless! Last night I decided to try a quick headband using the butterflies. I had to rework the butterflies to work without increasing.
This Crochet Butterfly Flutterby Headband would be a great way to use up some of the scraps of yarn you have around. I used all #4 worsted weight yarns like Caron Simply Soft, Red Heart Shimmer and Ice Yarns Happy Baby with a US H8/5.00mm hook.
I worked up this pattern last night, wrote it out and published it as is, it has not been tested. Please let me know if you find any errors. ~Happy Hooking~
