For the headbands: it is really simple.
First crochet the band:
chain as many as you need to go around the head. turn slip st in each stitch until you reach the end then sl st in first st creating a circle.
For the braid attachment.
Row 1: ch 20. St st in 2nd ch from hook, * sk 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, sk 2 ch, sl st in next ch. Repeat from* to end. Ch1. Do not turn.
Row 2: Working on opposite side of beg ch, sl st in first ch. *Sk 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, sk 2 ch, sl st in next ch. Repeat from* to end. Fasten off.
Attach to band. I then tied the ribbon on to the center of each knob.
so it took some time to get this up but i loved how it turned out. 🙂 Here’s the dress pattern again.
Shell (dc, ch1-3 times, dc) (dc, ch1-5 times, dc) (dc, ch1-6 times, dc)
Cluster: Holding back last loop on each, work 3 dc in same st or sp, yo and pull thru all 4 loops on hook.
