Rosie is a headband wearing type of gal. For Christmas I crocheted her a big blue flower. She had been borrowing mine that I bought from Emily Sparks.
I was able to duplicate it pretty well without a pattern.
Rosie went to an orphanage in Mexico on Christmas day. She distributed presents to the kids. She served them Christmas dinner. They played soccer.
Rosie wore her new headband.
The teenage girls at the orphanage loved it. They all wanted one but Rosie couldn't give it to just one girl. She wished she had more.
This gave her an idea.
She will be going back to the orphanage in Mexico and she wants to take a headband for each girl.
Do you crochet?
Will you help us make headbands?
Here's a closer look at it.
I am not a pro by any means. I've never written a pattern before, but here it goes.
Chain seven and connect to make a circle.
Double crochet thirteen through the center of the circle.
Double crochet a second row on top of the first, doubling up to make twenty-six stitches.
Chain five, single crochet into every third stitch. Repeat until you go all the way around the circle.
Double crochet seven into each arch to create the petals. Single crochet between each petal.
Chain a length of sixteen inches.
Connect to back of flower every two chain stitches. Continue across the back of the flower. Chain ten inches on the other side of the flower.
Turn and single crochet eight inches up the first chain.
Chain two inches and connect to back of the flower in the same way as the center chain. Chain ten inches on the opposite side before connecting to the first chain and single crocheting to the end.
Turn and repeat the last steps to create the third and last chain.
I know this pattern totally sucks. But believe me, if I can figure out how to make one of these, any seasoned crocheter should be able to whip one out in no time.
Here's a much better pattern! Thanks Jen Renee!
Tis' the season for fiber arts! Come on girls! It doesn't require much yarn! Get those needles flying!
If you are willing to make and ship me a headband, please leave a comment with your contact info and I will tell you where to ship.
Also, if you can send me a better pattern to post to replace my gibberish, I'd be much obliged.
Oh, and while you're at it, make one for yourself. I've been lapping up the compliments every time I wear mine!
