Free Crochet Pattern: Eustis Scarflette

Image
The weather is starting to get cool in my neck of the woods and with the drop in temperatures, my children are starting to ask for new cold weather accessories.  I came up with this scarflette for my 3 year old daughter.  





She is always moving at warp speed, it seems, and she always wants to do everything by herself.  So, I didn't want to make her a long scarf that she would struggle with wrapping around her neck or a scarflette with buttons because I'm not sure she'd slow down enough to button it herself or to let me help :)  

Materials needed: • J/6.00MM crochet hook • Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! in two colors- Used here: Turquoise & Peacock • Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends 
Gauge: • 6 hdc= 2 inches
Abbreviations: • ch= chain • sc= single crochet • hdc= half double crochet • sl st= slip stitch
Finished size: • Scarflette= 6.5" by 22" before it is sewn and folded
Scarflette:
1: Ch 26, turn, hdc in 2nd from hook and each across (25 hdc).

Free Crochet Pattern: Alexandria Flower Headband

Image
This year I have decided to make my daughters' Christmas dresses.  It is a lofty goal for me.  I'm not sure if I'll get it done, but I'm going to try :)  

I am putting the finishing touches on my youngest's dress now and I decided to make her a headband to go with it.  So, here is what I came up with.  




Materials needed:
• D/3- 3.25MM crochet hook • Louisa Harding Yarns Akiko- you'll use less than 1 skein to make this headband and flower • Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends 
Gauge: • You can make this headband in any size.  Before I joined my headband, the piece measured 16".  You want your headband piece to measure exactly the circumference of the head.  (This is different than my other headbands because I am not using elastic here to make it stretchy.)
Abbreviations: • ch= chain
• sc= single crochet • hdc= half double crochet
• dc= double crochet • sl st= slip stitch
• MR= magic ring
Finished size: • Headband to fit 16" head

Headband:
