Crochet Tutorial: Double Flower Headband

Recently, I shared a photo of me wearing this headband and several people asked if I had a video tutorial for it. Of course, I do!

This tutorial is an older post that was on my YouTube channel, but I never posted a blog about it. Here is the pattern and video for anyone interested in making these cute headbands.

Crochet Tutorial: Leaf and Flower Lariat

In an earlier post, I had mentioned that Nate bought me yarn this past Christmas. Some may think, “Well that is a no brainer, she crochets, she loves yarn. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!” Right? But to that, I say this: I thought about this man going through yarn types and brands trying to choose the right ones, the best fibers, deciding on variety without a clue as to what he’s doing, except he was doing it because he loves me. It made my heart skip. The picture of this in my mind was incredibly endearing.

Today’s leaf and floral neck lariat necklace is inspired by some of those skeins of yarn and the love behind them. Leaves are symbolic of life and the red flower symbolizes love. So, it is appropriate that it all comes together in this great creative piece. He truly has woven his way right into my heart giving it life. What better way to show that love than through my work?!

Lariat
You can make this as a belt, as a bunting, garland. You can customize this piece to your own desire. Make it longer, make it shorter, make it in different colors! The possibilities are endless!

Crochet Tutorial: Poinsettia

Crochet Tutorial: Poinsettia

Native to Central America, the poinsettia flower made its way to the United States in 1828. It was discovered in the wilderness of Southern Mexico by Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett. He was the U.S. ambassador to Mexico at the time. People wonder, “what does a poinsettia have to do with Christmas?” One interpretation of the plant is that it symbolizes the star of Bethlehem, the heavenly body that led the three wise men to the place where Jesus was born.

Another Mexican legend tells of a small girl who only could offer weeds as a gift to Jesus on the night he was born. When she brought the weeds to Jesus as an offering, they blossomed into the plants as we know as poinsettias. These flowers are known as Flores de Noche Buena, which is Spanish for Flowers of the Holy Night.

Today, I have crocheted my very own version of this beautiful flower. It is perfect for adorning a tree, adding to a gift, or using as a decoration throughout the home. In this easy-to-follow tutorial, we create our very own for this holiday season.
