First crochet project

It didn't take long at all, I started last night and snuck finished the rest at work today. The pattern is from Afya Ibomu's first Get your Crochet On book.

It was the perfect practice for the few basic stitches I have learned.

I feel like an official crocheter!


See the pattern online @ DIY Network : Crocheted Hair Accessories

What I like about this one was that I could kind of follow the pattern as a guideline, but modify it without much brainwork. I knew the original would have been too small to fit over kiddo's locs. I just added a few extra rounds and it was perfect. I also drawstrung (? or drawstringed?) it with a ribbon instead of elastic.

Kiddo approved.

Greay job!!! I love those bun holders, I've made a few for myself. The ribbon idea is cute. Instead of buying elastic, I use elastic headbands. I double them and then single or half double crochet right over them...secure and easy.
