Have you ever found a crochet pattern or stitch that you love so much you just want to use it all the time? That is how I feel about the stitch used to make this crochet Mickey Mouse Headband!
The band is made with a stitch that combines a single crochet stitch and a double crochet stitch, so if you can make those two stitches and a chain, you can make this headband. These are perfect to wear when you have your hair in a bun or ponytail, but still want something to keep your ears warm from a cool wind.
How did I discover this stitch? It is in the LeisureArts.com book One Skein Baby Projects, and is used to create the blanket in the Teddy Bear Lovely pattern. I have actually used this stitch several times in the past year to create some full sized blankets. I just adjusted the number of stitches I used. If you would like to see those projects you can find them HERE and HERE.
For the headbands, I start off with a chain of 55 stitches. For the circles to make the Mickey Mouse icon made circles in two sizes using the pattern I learned from the LeisureArts.com Teach Me To Crochet book. I originally used that book to create an Emoji Pillow from the circle pillow pattern, which you can check out HERE.
After making the circles, I just slip stitched them onto the headband. I made all of these out of Red Heart with Love yarn. I love how soft this yarn is! It comes in a lot of amazing colors too.
I hope that this blog post showed you how you can take what you learn in one or two books from different patterns and combine them into a brand new project that is all your own.
