A really easy-peasy, quick and, more importantly, cheap project.
So my niece has been after one of these:
A New Look headwarmer. Nice. Only £4, so not exactly bank-breaking.
Hmmmmmmmmm. I think I could make something a bit like that, methinks...
I used about 40 grams of cheap and cheerful King Cole Big Value Chunky, so it cost less than a quid to make. Most bargainous. One for the recession.
Here's one is oatmeal too:
And one being worn:
(sorry for model, but Betty's in deep storage ready for an upcoming craft sale, so it had to be me.)
Fancy making one?
I used a 10 mm hook and King Cole Big Value Chunky.
(I used me old favourite chainless foundation stitch)
Round 1: ch1, sc in Back Loops only (12 stitches)
Repeat row 1 until you've reached the desired length. (mine seemed best at about 45 cms)
Sew the two ends together.
For the flower, I switched to a 7mm hook and hooked the first 4 rows of this pattern from Red Heart.
Then stitch the flower to your headwarmer and add a button, if you like.
Don't forget to visit my Pay it Forward giveaway post! I'll be drawing a winner on Oct 31st.
Enjoy you week, all.
