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 !
Do visit this lovely link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-double-crochet-fdc/
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.

For my headband, I used the ears from the puppy dog amigurumi.

Of course, a bit of satin ribbon will work well too.
Choices..decisions.. andlotsa creativity. Go for it and enjoy J

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
