A CUTE PUPPY-EARED HEADBAND


I had made a cute little puppy dog stuff toy / amigurumi sometime back.  With the recent set of cute stuff toys with matching headbands, I was asked to make a headband for that puppy dog as well. J
Thank you for joining me in our fun creativity session today.

Materials used : Today I’ve used some of our lovely Indian Vardhaman millennium acrylicyarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook ; embroidery needle
Materials that you could use : I think any 4-ply yarn is suitable – cotton or acrylic.  I had this in hand, so used it  ;-)

Skill level : Intermediate to Advanced.  Basic sewing skills needed. 

Stitches used :
Magic circle :To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

fdc : Foundation Double Crochet : This is a unique way of starting a project directly with a row of double crochet stitches.  This makes your whole project neat and even..in a way that you need to do once, to agree!  If you are familiar with fsc, you’ll wonder why you never used this start before !

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

Pattern information

For my headband, I used the ears from the puppy dog amigurumi.  
Once done, I attached the monkey ears onto my headband.  
Just to get everything looking cute, neat and in one colour, I first wrapped my (metal) headband with the white yarn.  
You can either just wrap it (round and round without stitching – use a little glue every few inches to see that it sticks down well – and of course ensure you glue the ends down well)
OR you could work an sc around the headband with the yarn.
This will also help hold the little ears well.

Cute ain’t it?

If you decide you want to make the headband base, check out what I’ve done here https://shyamanivas.blogspot.com/2017/12/adorable-monkey-amigurumi-matching.html

Of course, a bit of satin ribbon will work well too.

Choices..decisions.. andlotsa creativity.  Go for it and enjoy J
