To crochet the Bellus Headband I used scrap yarn, unfortunately I couldn’t remember the yarn name or brand. I think it’s a really good thing to use scrap yarn when you crochet & you can find ideas I’ve collected here.
Because of the fact that I didn’t know the yarn brand, I’ve searched for a substitute that works 100 % for this pattern. The final look might be different, but you could also use your own scrap yarn.
If you’d like a substitute, you should try Rowan Felted Tweed Aran.
THE PERFECT SCRAP YARN CROCHET PROJECT
The Bellus Headband is designed with winter in mind. It’s the perfect pattern when you want to use some leftover yarn, because you don’t need much.
While the crochet Bellus Headband is a scrap yarn crochet project, it’s also made with Christmas in mind. The crochet headband is definitely a great gift for Christmas. First of all it doesn’t take too long to crochet, but still it has all the details that makes it an interesting gift.
Since you like the crochet Bellus Headband, these might interest you too?
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.
