Does anyone feel like the year is getting away from them? It’s amazing how the last few weeks of school just DRAG when you are kid, but as an adult, three years will fly by leaving your head spinning.

Since we moved back to Utah, I have just been waiting, waiting and waiting for spring to come.
I forgot about the spring showers (showering snow, of course. ) But I feel a bit guilty, with each coming spring my son is another year older (sniffle).

But the warmth is nice, and in honor of the coming of spring, maybe somewhere in the world, I am releasing my newest pattern, the Boho Headband.


Free Crochet Pattern - This stretchy boho headband works up quick and is a perfect accessory for warmer months! {Pattern by Whistle & Ivy}



What you need:
Caron Simply Soft Yarn
Chunky Button
Clover Elastic Yarn Thread
Size G Hook

**Tips – If you haven’t used elastic thread, here are a few tips.
1 – Make sure you keep it tight! Set up the roll of thread according to package directions, and let the pull come automatically.
2 – Don’t be tempted to give yourself slack. Your resulting project won’t have very much elasticity.
3- Try to crochet a little looser than you normally would. The elastic will pull your stitches tight, and making the loops looser keeps things looking a little bit nicer. It takes a bit of practice, but it is very fun to have a nice, stretchy project!

1. (Use your yarn and thread simultaneously) Ch 11. Sl st into 1st chain to form a loop.
2. Ch 2. Dc 22 into the ring. Join with sl st.
3. Ch 70. Sc into 2nd ch from hook. Sc down your ch. Sl st into the SAME st at your first ch.

(2 sc at the top of the strand) Sc into the right side of the next strand (wrong side of sts facing you). Sc 1 in the left of the same strand. Turn.

    I am having a really hard time as soon as I get to B. It just turns into a knot and I end up getting frustrated… I really want to make these! Will you be making a video? I’m thinking that’s going to be the only way I am going to catch on. :(

      I will! I am working my way through trying to get all my patterns done. Until then, would you like for me to try and help? You should be back at the foundation ring at the beginning of B.

    Bethany, I am a beginner at crocheting. Any chance you have time to make a tutorial so I can watch you make this? My 10 year old granddaughter likes it a lot and I want to make her one but can’t figure out how to do so without watching Thanks

      I could do that, but I am taking a bit of a maternity break, so it will be a few weeks. Can I help you through emails? Are you familiar with the stitches? Chains and slip stitches?
