Patriotic Hair Bandanas

June 10, 2017

Looking for an easy and festive crochet project? I busted out two of these in about one hour! I was working on a top and it felt like it was taking foreverrrrrrrrrrrr. I needed something quick and cute, so put down what I was working on and I whipped up a couple of these Patriotic Hair Bandanas! Instant gratification.

I used the ever so versatile granny stitch. Is there anything you can’t make with a granny stitch?

 

I think these girls are ready for 4th of July festivities! I used acrylic worsted weight yarn, but I think a light cotton yarn would be really nice, especially for summer. I’m a firm believer in using what you have… so I used what I had! But I think next time I go out to buy red, white and blue yarn, I’ll look for some cotton. Once I run out of my acrylic first, of course 🙂

I’m thinking they don’t mind being in front of the camera 😛

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.
