Hey Guy’s!

So, It’s Spring! Which means I’ll be spending my days frolicking through the flowers in a crochet bikini top and flower crown. Ok, I’m totally joking… or am I? ANYWAY. With the weather warming up and crochet getting to be a little more difficult during these warm months I just had to come up with a pattern that worked up quickly, easily, lightly, and wears well in warm weather. Say hello to the braided headband! Don’t let the twists and turns of this project scare you, if you can crochet and know how to make a basic braid then you can totally make this headband. Fun side note, I finished this baby in under two hours. Who doesn’t love instant crochet satisfaction!?
