Winterberry Headwrap.

I love this headwrap.  It works up in about 30 minutes (depending on how fast you crochet).  It is made with Homespun yarn, so it feels nice and warm.  For this pattern I dropped a couple hook sizes, from what I usually work with for this yarn, to give a bit of a warmer/tighter stitch.

Have you tried using Lion Brand Homespun?  Did you find that you didn't like working with it?  It is a very common complaint, not finding it easy to work with.  I, too, use to avoid homespun.  The secret for me was to work with a large hook.  I found that working with an N hook made it easier to get use to.  For me, I wasn't able to really see the top of my stitches and it would frustrate me.  Now, I find myself gravitating towards Homespun more than anything else, especially in the colder weather. 

I promise, it gets easier!  Give it another try!  My Cozy Cowl Pattern is a great easy pattern to give Homespun another go!  My Cozy Cowl Pattern calls for Homespun and an N hook.

Ok, now for the Winterberry Headwrap pattern.  :)  This headwrap is "one size fits most".  It fits both me and my 4 year old very comfortably!  When I finished the headwrap, I decided it needed something, so I made one of my 3 layer flowers to attach.

  1. Rookie here! I tried this more than once. No way the chain 16 will fit over anyone's head. What am I doing wrong?

    1. The ch 16 will be the width of the headband. :)

  2. This looks like a hat. Is it a hat or a headband?
