Restless Crocheting

Getting restless with my crochet..... so have started a knitting project just for a change....


I have a stash of this beautiful steel coloured mohair .... decided to knit a vest.....


have introduced a band of 5 knit 5 purl at waist level just for a bit of contrast .....
OK so now need a change from the knitting...
just takes forever... this knitting business...

OK time for something totally different...
crochet headband...


let's try it with bamboo ribbon yarn...
nice colours...

pattern ?? uh?  just make it up as I go...
a simple shell stitch will do...
easy.. peasy... in no time at all ..
finished....

and now...








let's make another headband...

this time let's try a totally different kind of pattern....

and yes and let's make it with ....
lime coloured DK cotton....

this pattern a bit more tricky....

it's an insert pattern....

but I am going to edit the ends a bit....

so can button up the headband....


think that will do for today....

will finish adding the buttons tomorrow....
