Elastic hair band

Small amount of 2 colors of yarn (great scrap yarn project)

9 pony beads to coordinate with your yarn colors

You must string your beads onto your yarn before beginning this project. Put the beads on the yarn color that you plan to use in rows 2 and 3, as Row 1 is worked in a different color yarn.

ROW 1: Work 36 SC around elastic hair band. Join to first stitch, fasten off.

ROW 2: With second yarn color, join with 1 SC in any stitch, chain 3, skip 1 SC, SC in next stitch around. Join with slip stitch, chain 1, turn.

ROW 3: SC in skipped stitch of ROW 2, chain 2, bring up bead, chain 1. SC in next skipped stitch of ROW 2, chain 3. SC in next skipped stitch of ROW 2, chain 2, bring up bead, chain 1, around. Join with slip stitch at the end.

 

FLEECE KERCHIEF - PICTURE COMING SOON!

 

I thought these would be nice and warm. I think they'd especially be good for cancer patients - the fleece would be warm and very soft on tender, bald heads. Just make sure you make them large enough to completely cover the head if you're making these for a cancer patient that's lost their hair, or for cancer donations. :)

1/3 yard of fleece - you'll get several kerchiefs from this!

Small amount of coordinating yarn - choose a soft yarn like Caron Simply Soft

Size G or H hook

ice pick or other tool to make holes in the fabric

STEP 1: Cut your fleece equal sized squres - about 14-15 inches. Then cut all your squares in half diagonally to create a triange.

STEP 2: Make holes in the fabric every 1/4 inch or so.

STEP 3: Starting at one corner of the long side - not at the "peak" of the triangle in the back - using coordinating yarn and G or H hook (G's a little easier to work into the holes, but H works also) work 2 single crochets into each hole around. When you get to the OPPOSITE corner of the long side from where you started, chain 35 from the corner, work a slip stitch into each chain going back to the scarf, then continue across what will be the front of the scarf working 2 single crochets in each hole. When you get to the corner where you began, again chain 35, work a slip stitch into each chain back to the scarf, and join.
