The Progression Of The Times
I had originally designed this pattern back in January 2020 with the thought that the Whimsy Head Wrap would be the perfect accessory for festivals, the beach, or vacations………Well, all that didn’t happen, and as May drew near I was so worried the head wrap would not be received as a useful accessory for the times.
But, to my surprise the wonderful subscribers of HHM embraced the idea and utilized it’s functionality for their Covid hair!!
Seriously though, it turned into the perfect accessory for the not-able-to-see-a-hairdresser-three-months crew!
The Pattern Tests
Wow, it feels like a lifetime ago that my testers were working on this one! This group of testers was fantastic! The test for the Whimsy Head Wrap took place all the way back in the beginning of February!
The Whimsy Head Wrap Pattern
- Approx. 80 yds of #2 fine weight yarn. I used *Sugar Bush Bliss in Cherish Cream
- US size 4.5mm crochet hook. I used my fave *Furls Odyssey
- Scissors – These are my fave *scissors!
- Yarn Needle – I used these *Clover needles.
4 rows x 8 stitches = 2″ Pattern for gauge is DC
The finished length is 49″ and width is 4″ The size is easily adjustable by adding or subtracting repeat rows.
- CH – Chain
- DC – Double Crochet
- TC – Treble Crochet
- DC2TOG – Double Crochet 2 Together
- ST(S) – Stitch(es)
- SK – Skip
- CH-SP – Chain Space
Double Crochet 2 Together (DC2TOG) – Yarn over, insert hook into indicated st, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through 2 loops (2 loops remain on hook), yarn over, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through 2 loops (3 loops remain on hook), yarn over, pull through remaining 3 loops on hook.
- US Terminology
- All CH 2 do not count as a stitch.
- All CH 4 do count as a stitch.
- As mentioned in sizing this pattern is very easy to adjust for sizing. you can add or subtract repeating rows in the ties or the main band to adjust length.
- Pattern is worked lengthwise, from one end to the other.
