In-between Crochet

I have an idea for a sweater I want to try and make but somehow I can’t get my crochet mojo in gear for it, so in the meantime I am having fun with flowers. Cute flowers, brash flowers, pretty flowers and all to be worn either on the head or around the neck!

I thought I would share a picture of one of the headbands I’ve made over the last few days. It’s made in flax and wool. I have some beautiful cones of spring and summer coloured flax all suited for about a 2 mm hook. I think the rustic yarn gives a nice texture to the flowers, not like the smooth look of mercerised cotton and I have this notion it will be easier to keep in place too.

I love crocheting flowers!

    That is a lovely headband. When I read ‘flax and wool’ it immediately reminded me of a verse in Proverbs about the wife who would make clothes for her family seeking the best ‘flax and wool’. {smiles}
    What yarn brand do you use?

    What a lovely little twist to my crochet Sara!

    As for the brand of yarn, I have no idea, it’s a cone of “stuff” picked up somewhere along the lines. No label, no nothing. Sorry I can’t be of more help! However, any lace weight yarn would work for this!
