Hello everyone Wink
I am just a beginner in crochet, I only tried out a pattern once (for a hat)
which didn't work out the 2nd time I tried the very same pattern...
So after a long time (about 4 months) non crocheting, I wanted to make something! anything! by crochet!
And I knew what, a headband!
I knew how it should be constructed in my head so I tried, and succeeded !
In less than 20 minutes ! hoorray!!
enough talking, picture time!
First one:

cherry red - multicolour yarn blue pink- multicolour green brown yarn

and on:




let me know what you think?
Also, would this be good enough to sell?? (my mum's says "nobody would want to where that!" me: "I do!!")
And for how much? I was thinking 3,50 (= 5$)

Tutorial:
Make a chain of chainstitches
See if it's long enough to tie behind your head.
If it is, make single crochet stitches, so going into the previous chainstitches you made.
Make that part about 10 cm (4 inch) long, than instead of doing another single crochet stitch, just start making chainstitches again.
Until you reach 10 cm's (4 inch) from the end and do single crochet 'till the end again.
Finished Smiley
If you understand this, let me know :p (I don't speak english so it's difficult to explain Cheesy)

cute.  & yes, they are good enough to sell. Wink  i sell something similar, but it has 3 parts & instead of crocheting the ends  together, i braid them.  what's really good is they are quick & easy, so you can sell them cheap.  i do a saturday art market & make them in custom color combos while my client finishes shopping.

well ijn the little girls accesssories shops you'll pay about 3.50 but i think that's a little overpriced - and  they're mass made and unpleasaant!
perhaps 2? (not sure what that is in Euro's? abour E2 probably, thanks to Gordon Brown! )

My Cousin just bought something similar to these. Cept they had three strands and were braided or something. I spent like an hour trying to figure out what it was and I still couldn't figure it out. XP
Hers cost like four dollars at walmart. And I saw similar ones at hot topic for around the same.
Hers was a leatherish? type material but they had others of different material and I think they were all around the same price so I'm sure if you sold them at that price someone would buy. :3

I think they're very cute :3
So around 2-4 to me is a good price and I'm a cheapass too. X3

thankyou all for your comments and tips!
I think I am going to charge about 3 = 4$ = 2.50
(the yarn was quite expensive but I liked it so much Cheesy)
