You know how sometimes you go on vacation with your family, but you manage to pack very strange things? Is there any other way to travel?? We recently spent a few days of spring break on a family road trip to the mountains, but I forgot to bring hair ties for the girls. This may seem like a silly thing, but they all have long hair and haven’t quite mastered keeping it out of their faces. I had managed to bring some yarn and crochet hooks to practice with and after a particularly windy time, made some easy Crochet Chain Stitch Moonstone Yarn Accessories.
I had this super fun Moonstone Yarn in Andromeda from Premier Yarns in my travel craft bag. Even if I forget everything else, I always have something to work on. I used a US N15/10.00mm crochet hook (I love the larger hooks!).
I started a super loose chain. I went a bit more slowly than usual because I needed to make sure I didn’t hook through the yarn itself. I kept going until it was long enough to make multiple loops around the girls’ heads.
At the end of my chain, I tied a loop and cut the yarn after the loop. Think of it as a small garland.
I love the color changes!
To make the headband, I pulled the chain through the loop and wrapped it around their heads.
I thought it would be fun to have an accessory of my own. I don’t tend to travel with jewelry, so it was fun to transform the chain into a necklace. I’m imagining the same chain becoming a belt or bracelet/cuff, too! For added fun, add a charm or three to the chain.
