Free Crochet Pattern: The Henrietta Headband


Free Crochet Pattern

Some of my followers may remember hearing of Henrietta. She is a dear friend that also happens to be my crochet pattern tester.  She and I both love wearing wide fabric headbands in our short hair.  A while back she made me a reversible fabric headband of Doctor Who fabric (Woohoo! My favorite!).

Recently, I had a bit of yarn left over from making this guy:

It's a Plesiosaurus (sort of? but he's cute anyway) that I made for Henrietta as a birthday gift.  She has a serious love of dinosaurs.  I was lucky enough to pick this yarn up in my goodie bag from last year's Yarn Fest.  It is Mantra by Mango Moon yarns. It is a fantastic cotton blend that has interesting color changes and great stitch definition.  I had just enough to make a small project...wouldn't a headband be perfect?
May I present to you: The Henrietta Headband!  It's simple and cute and a great project to show of a smaller amount of specialty yarn. Add it to your Ravelry queue here.
