If you're looking for a fun and easy project to make with Tunisian crochet
, a hair band is a great choice. Not only is it quick to make, but it's also a stylish and practical accessory that you can wear every day. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make a Tunisian crochet hair band.
What You'll Need
Before you start, you'll need a few supplies:
|Tunisian crochet hook||1|
|Worsted weight yarn||1 skein|
Follow these simple steps to make your Tunisian crochet hair band
- Make a foundation chain that is long enough to fit around your head comfortably. Use a multiple of 4 stitches, plus 2 extra stitches.
- Insert your Tunisian crochet hook into the second chain from the hook, and pull up a loop. Repeat this process across the row, until you have one loop left on your hook.
- For the next row, work a Tunisian crochet stitch called the Tunisian Knit Stitch (TKS) across the row. This stitch will create a nice, dense fabric that is perfect for a hair band. To work the TKS, insert your hook under the front vertical bar of the stitch, from right to left. Yarn over, and pull up a loop.
- Repeat step 3 across the row, until you have one loop left on your hook.
- For the next row, work the TKS across the row again.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 until your hair band is the desired width.
- Bind off your stitches, and weave in the ends with a yarn needle.
Your Tunisian crochet hair band is now complete! You can leave it as is, or you can add some decorative touches to make it even more special. You might want to sew on a button or a flower, or you could add some beads or sequins to give it some sparkle. The possibilities are endless!
