I am so happy to welcome Spring today! I look forward to warmer days and spring blossoms.
Yesterday I showed you a new design, Seed Stitch Headband. Today I will show you how to foundation single crochet (fsc) over a ponytail elastic.
Let’s meet the characters…
Serenity Garden from Deborah Norville, a G hook, and a 2″ponytail elastic.
Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook and holding the elastic, yo,
pull loop through, yo,
chain 1, yo pull through 2 loops,
fsc made, now insert hook through ch,
and over elastic (locking elastic underneath),
ch 1, yo, pull through 2 loops,
continue this process until you have 6 fsc.
For the headband
Row 1: Ch 1, sk first st, (sc in next st, ch 1, sk next st) twice, sc in last st, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, (sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1) twice, sc in last ch-1 sp, turn.
For Thin Headband continue with Row 2 until measures 14”.
Last Row: Holding twisted elastic next to sts, Ch 1, sc each st over elastic.
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
The finished headband…
