Created by Guest Designer Sierra from Sierra’s Crafty Creations
Valentine’s Day is a holiday I like to dress up for! I love all the pinks, reds, and hearts! However, I live in Ohio so that means it’s pretty darn cold for Valentine’s Day. So this year I designed a headband I can wear out and still feel festive!
Now this crochet heart headband was designed with Valentine’s day in mind, but let’s be honest- hearts are in fashion all year long 😉

Sewing headband closed
Fold your headband in half so the two short ends are lined up like shown above.
Using your yarn needle and the long tail you left, line up the stitches and weave your tail through each stitch across. Be sure to go through both sides of the headband to securely attach the ends.
Weave in any and all loose ends you may have & you are finished!!

This looks so fun! I will add this to my list of crochet projects! I have been crocheting 24/7 due to my starting my own business, but once I finish everything I have to make I am SO going to make this!
Do you think making this taller and whip stitching the top could make a cute hat?
