It’s so FURRY
The FURRY is here! The newest addition to the Yarn and Colors family is super soft and made out of 100% polyester.
Now that the mornings are realy cold the FURRY inspired me to crochet a headband. The yarn is so soft that it really feels like a warm teddy bear is cuddling your ears. Isn’t that what everyone dreams of?!
So pick up your crochet hook, pick 2 balls of FURRY in a color of your choice and let’s get going. This is a fast and easy project, so your ears should feel nice and toasty in no time.
- 2 balls of FURRY
- G/6 (US) or 8 (UK) hook
- Darning needle
Stitches: Chain, Treble crochet (US) or Double Treble crochet (UK), Slip stitch
Chain 32 and use a slip stitch to attach the last chain to the first chain. (photo 1) Chain 2 (this will count as the first Treble crochet (US)/Double Treble Crochet (UK)). Then Treble crochet/Double Treble crochet into each stitch of the chain. Finish this round by crocheting a slip stitch into the first Treble crochet/Double Treble crochet. There should be 32 Treble crochet/Double Treble crochet in this first round. (photo 2)
Repeat this until it fits around your whole head. Make sure to test how far around your head it goes every few rounds (it’s soooooo soft!). The headband should fit around your head snuggly. Don’t worry about making it fit too tight, it’ll stretch a little when you start wearing it. If you crochet too many rounds and it becomes too long it’ll end up falling down.
Finish off, and leave a 70 cm/28 inch tail. Now use your darning needle to close the edges of the headband. You can hide the leftover yarn inside. (photo 3)
Cut a piece of yarn off of your ball and thread it through your needle. Make a pleat in the middle of the headband (photo 1) and push the needle through (photo 2). Wind the thread around the pleat once (photo 3) and tie a sturdy knot on the back of the headband (photo 4). Hide the leftover yarn in your headband.
Easy peasy! You’re completely ready for a Siberian winter. You might still have some FURRY yarn left over, maybe your mini-me would like a headband too? Therefore chain less in the beginning and then follow the same description as above.
