For Christmas 2015, my mom sent me a package with about 12 skeins of lace yarn that she found at a thrift store. She knew that I had gotten into crocheting a lot, so she thought it would be something I’d want to try. And I did! But, here I am over a year later and I still have all of that lace yarn sitting in my yarn pile.
I did make a beautiful bonnet for my little girl’s baby doll, but that was as far as I had gotten. And I’ll be honest, I was a little nervous. Lace yarn is so small and delicate that it can be intimidating!
But this time I was determined! I knew I needed to make something and I wasn’t going to let myself chicken out this time. So that’s when I decided that my sweet Louisa needed something: a headband.
She has been refusing to wear her hair up lately and it’s driving me nuts! I’m sick of her getting food in her hair and everything else. It also just looks so disheveled all the time, I feel like people must think I’m a terrible mother.
Anyway, once I made her this adorable lace headband, she was so excited! She has insisted on wearing it all the time. So, problem solved!
And here it is. I love this simple pattern so much and hope you do, too!
