VALENTINE'S HEARTS HEADBAND

Yes, it's that time of year again, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner! I am looking forward to a day of celebrating romance, being showered with roses and chocolates and a lovely outing with my darling of course.



The other day while thinking about Valentine's Day and what to do and where to go, I thought it is about time I designed a new crochet pattern for Valentine's. Something relatively easy and using a fun technique, like tapestry crochet.

If you haven't tried it yet, then let's give it a go, let's play and have some fun with tapestry crochet.

You will need to be comfortable with carrying one colour as you crochet with the other, this way you can change colours in the row easily. It is a lovely way to create colourful designs and patterns and you can use yarns or threads, depending on the item being made.

Valentine's Hearts Headband

Here is my unconventional tapestry hearts headband, it's unconventional because I intentionally designed the heart to be different from the norm, and a bit more abstract. I didn't even use graph paper, I just crocheted and designed it along the way, and here is the result. After crocheting the headband I decided to include a tapestry graph, which will help you follow the pattern. 

Yarn

The hearts headband is crochet using chunky yarn, I am using leftovers from my yarn stash, Wendy Mode Chunky, a soft blend of 50% Merino Wool 50% Acrylic, and yes this yarn is machine washable.

You can substitute the yarn, just remember to check the YARNSUB website, to get the best match.

Do not cut old yarn until instructed. Photographs accompany the written instructions of this pattern.

TO MAKE SMALLER AND LARGER SIZES

This headband pattern is crochet in multiples of 11sts. You can increase or decrease the size by 11sts to get the total stitch count which will match the head circumference. You can also increase or decrease the size by 5-6sts by increasing the space where the hearts are closest, so instead of 1st between the hearts, make it 2sts. This will mean the pattern will be using multiples of 12sts.
