I taught myself to crochet a few years ago and have made a few simple things, but I started a project from a magazine last fall for this headband/earwarmer. I foolishly thought I'd be finished it by Winter. Ha!
I finally completed it on a recent camping trip. It's made of plum cashmere yarn, so it should make a cozy-boho Fall addition.
I'm specifically excited about this because it is the first time I have followed a pattern that included adding and subtracting stitches, plus making a crocheted CABLE, yo! I hereby declare this a departure to the next level in my crochet skills.
