Crocheted Plain Trellis Stitch Head Wrap Pattern

 Some that may have followed some of my crocheting know that I love hats, facsinators and head wraps........Getting a chance to use my vintage bone crochet hook to crochet something was enjoyable. I have just about every color head wrap except gold. Gold really brightens up your skin, face and adds a nice touch to any outfit....I am a jeans person in the winter but more dresses in the summer.

How to Crochet the Trellis Stitch

Row 1: Crochet the single foundation chain. (If you forgot how here is my Foundation Single Crochet stitch .

  Work over a multiple of 4 chains plus 2. (Basically crochet enough chains as to how wide you want your head wrap to be on your head). (I always make a couple more chains then what I think I will need, because with crochet thread it is thinner and folds nicely. For mine I crocheted seventy chains.

Foundation - Row 2  Single crochet to the end of the row. crochet one chain then turn. 
Foundation  - Row  3: 1 sc into the 6th ch from hook *ch 5, sk ch3, 1 sc  into next ch, rep from * to end, turn.

Row 4 - *Ch 5, 1 sc into next ch 5 sp; rep from * to end, turn.

Rep Row 4 for length desired.

If you have any questions please post in comment section.

Thank you. Enjoy~

Until the next time keep the Faith and plenty of yarn!

Crochet Pattern Project Update

Crochet thread and vintage crochet hook

Finally had a chance to try out my vintage crochet hook (more about that in my next blog post). For the crochet head wrap pattern I wanted a very lightweight yarn for the summer months, yet one that would have a stiffness to hold my hair. 

I also wanted to use a stitch to allow comfort and finally worked that out well  too. Pattern and Youtube tutorial next post.

 I have two projects on the hooks. This yarn is my absolute favorite...silky,yet strong just enjoyable to work with. Of course I had to choose this color. This pattern should work up pretty quickly but being for a top, it is worked in a totally different manner. (More of that on the next blog post).

Update for My Vintage Crochet Hooks

 I have been busy, really learning about piecing my blog together. I just designed my header. Not too bad for a complete blog novice but for now I like it. What do you think? Suggestions?
Planning to get a logo design by the end of the year.

Well I recently stated that I would be sharing information about my new collection of vintage crochet hooks. Still waiting for two of those to arrive, hopefully by Saturday.
This is one made of bone. Once I show my other three, I plan to share information about their backgrounds and some history.

 Also busy finishing up 2 head wraps for the summer.

Until Next Time Keep the Faith and plenty of yarn ~
