More Crochet Projects


I have made a few more crochet projects, 
thought I would share what I have made

This one is a hat and scarf set that I made for my 
9 year old niece. I have made scarves before
but this is the first time I have made a hat,
and it was actually really easy.


Here is a link to the video that I used
She has a great step by step tutorial.


Here are a couple of headbands, 
these are a first for me also.
Again, they were very easy to make.



Here are the links to the videos I followed
to make these.  
Yolandas' videos are great!
Very easy to follow, she even has videos
to help you learn to crochet.
