Dainty Pink Flower Headband

On a whim, I decided to make this headband for myself to wear on a special day for good luck.

I used my new 2mm hook and some silky variegated cotton my mum gave me, it took me about an hour while I had trouble sleeping. It often happens when Thomas has gone to sleep, then I can't sleep myself!

Basically, this headband started as a chain, then a row of dc, then a row of 5 dc scallops. I turned and continued scallops around the other side. I finished with rows of 6 dc, every 2nd row leaving a 2 ch space for a button. This way the length of the headband can be adjusted.

The 7 petal flower is for good luck. It's the same as my simple 6 petal flower, except the 1st round has 13 dc instead of 11.

I don't often wear headbands, but I rather like this one. Maybe I will wear them more often now?

As usual, I am linking in with my favourite blog party Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound, check it out!
