Wearing Your Crochet Creations

Do you like to wear the crochet items that you make? Do you prefer to see others wearing them? Most often I wear the scarves that I've designed since it would be rather difficult to wear a baby blanket! Recently, I noticed that the light blue of one of my Blair Headbands goes perfectly with the light blue in my space leggings.



Thus, I wore it them both to work, along with a black dress. That headband pattern is so underrated. Seriously. Sometimes designers imagine patterns that don't initially get a lot of love. For me, the Blair Headband Collection falls into that category. It's a free pattern, so check it out if you haven't already.

What crochet projects have you worn out recently?

  1. I made a cowl a while back that I wore the other day! Mostly I just make things for other people so I don't have many opportunities to wear my own creations :D

    1. Hooray for your cowl! It can be even more fun to see things worn on others.

  2. I like to wear my own creations when they aren't being given or sold to others. I am still trying to find just the right headband width and shape to stay on my head. They usually slip off me. I am thinking a wider band might be better. Any advice?

    1. Yes! I have the same problem with almost all store-bought headbands. Hard, elastic, it just doesn't matter. They all pop off. The only headbands that work for me are those that tie on. That way you can find the perfect spot for them on your head and secure them there. I also find that it helps to have a braid, bun, or ponytail style to help keep them in place, as is shown in my picture.
