Headbands can fix any number of bad hair days. They also add that extra “oomph” to the everyday look. 

This lacy yet sturdy headband is made in one go: after crocheting the main body back and forth in rows, the straps and edging are made in the same round. Make this using organic yarn for a spring or summer accessory, or make it double as a warmer by using wool or acrylic.

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 7th, 2011 by Claire Ortega-Reyes – 19 Comments
No matter how wildly different they are from each other, women from every corner of the globe are bonded by that monthly event in their lives: the period.

What girl is unaware of the ups and downs this event brings? The most embarrassing part is when your napkin spills out of your purse at the most unexpected moment, thereby announcing to the rest of the world your current situation.

Fear no more, crocheting gals! Make this quick and easy pocket for your sandwich(es), for a more discreet storage option. This pocket is made using two squares with just five rounds each. Are you a maxi type of gal? Just increase the number of rows on both squares to make it larger. If done large enough, you can even use it for an actual sandwich, haha.
