ADORABLE CROCHET LAMB  & MATCHING HEADBAND 

This adorable crochet lamb with a matching headband is the fourth project I have worked on ... a combo like this is interesting and I’ve had great fun thinking the set up. 
Thank you for joining me in our fun creativity session today.

Materials used : Today I’ve used some of our lovely Indian 4-ply knitting cotton yarns with a 3.5 mm crochet hook ; embroidery needle

Skill level : Intermediate.  Basic sewing skills needed.


Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

Here is a sizing chart for general head sizing :

For my headband, I used the fantastic crochet sheep ear muff pattern from http://www.craftpassion.com/crochet-sheep-earmuffs-for-kid-pattern-tutorial/2/
I made one fluffy ear muff and once done, I attached it onto my headband.

For the flower headband, I just used the same lil flower pattern from Shelby the Lamb pattern , similar colours, so that the baby had 2 pieces of headwear with one lil stuff toy :)

For a better hold, I wrapped my (metal) headband with yarn, so there was something to hold the cute lil sheep down.  Cute ain’t it?

Now you could also opt to make a simple crocheted headband base and attach the sheep / lamb motif onto it OR you could even more simply attach the motif onto a satin ribbon.  There you go.. ideas and more :)

For my headband, I used the ears and little horns from this same pattern.  I just covered my thin metal headband with yarn first (I used the tan yarn) and then made the two little horns and a pair of ears. Using an embroidery needle, I attached these pieces onto the headband.  Simple enough, right?  End result = Spectacular.. Well, I think so too J
