Crochet a Granny Square Headband

Here's a sweet granny square headband "sleeve" I crocheted for my daughter.
I used sock wool and a 3.25 mm crochet hook to make 3 granny squares, then I crocheted them together.
I then crocheted a back piece in double crochet to create a sleeve for the plastic headband to be slipped through.

I'm tossing around ideas for handmade items to sell in my {currently empty} Etsy shop and in our upcoming Spring Vintage and Handmade Market. Although I think this is super cute and granny squares seem to be cropping up everywhere these days, this took way too long to think about making multiples of them to sell. Unless, of course, they were very high priced and then it would be totally worth it. lol

Do you buy handmade items online at all?

  1. I saw your headband on Creative Kristi. I'm totally in love!! I've been itching to pick up crocheting again, and your headband definitely pushes me to do it :)

  2. @insideways, Thanks! Crocheting is so fun... I hope you'll pick it up again!
