Why I Crochet:

I was taught knitting at an early age by both of my Nans, the basic stuff. All I could make was a scarf but when I moved out of home my best friend taught me crochet to stave off boredom and I fell in love with it! It was so much faster than knitting, the ability to make different shapes so easily shocked me.

The first thing I made was a Yoshie plushie for my now husband (which we still have). Since then I have come a long way, this year I started to design my own garments. The patterns you will see here today definitely show my latest obsession, hair accessories! Headbands are my favourite thing to make for myself as they are a great way to add a personal touch to any outfit.

6 CROCHET PATTERNS BY Claire of Bear Rye Creations:

Ain’t no Mountain
This gorgeous headband was a design created for the E’Claire Makery blog. This is a great introduction to tapestry crochet, consisting of only two colors and using single crochet throughout its super easy and fast to make.

Triangular Headband
This is my favorite everyday hair accessory. The bobbles used in the pattern give a beautiful airy feel. It is so light it almost seems like lace.

Daisy Headband
The pretty flower lace in this pattern may seem complicated but it is really easy to build up. This is a really fast make and is perfect for teaching new stitches to both you and others.

Little Boy Blue
I made this cute little earflap hat for a coworker’s baby shower. I decided to translate the pattern into multiple sizes, because who doesn’t love mummy and me sets. Or maybe a daddy and me set?

Sampler Scarf
This scarf was created for yarn craft teachers! The pattern begins by using single crochet and advances to combine different stitches to create openwork patterns, showing how easy it is to make textures in crochet.

It’s a Wrap
I felt like this was the perfect pattern to finish up on. This beautiful swimsuit coverup was created for The Joy of Motion Blog and was my first garment release this summer.
