Mosaic crochet headbands

Although it is some time since I have blogged I have actually been very busy with crochet! The Scottish Highlands has had a bumper crop of visitors this year and I have been busy replenishing shelves with various crochet items that have been sold.

All of this has led to a dearth of anything new being created, and it has really only been this week that the pressure has eased and I have felt able to try my hand at something new.

These are adapted from a pattern by Entrelac Cat Designs, using King Cole Riot in in Blue Jeans (3437), Dude (400) and Stormy (3079) with King Cole Panache in cream (2077) and Stonewash (2069) on a 4.5mm hook.

You will notice that the top two have a distinct curve to their shape as the starting chain edge is tighter than the last row. I tried to correct this by doing a chainless foundation (US) single crochet in the bottom one, but I would say that this is still a work in progress.

Interestingly, although mosaic crochet is something new for me, I have used this stitch before; as it is effectively ‘moss stitch’ made in two colours. See my previous projects here, here and here. Which just goes to show that nothing learned is ever wasted!
