Sweetheart Bands

These sweetheart head and wristbands were inspired by the colors of the spring blooming, heart-shaped dicentra (bleeding heart); cream, with dark and light pinks.

This high relief, textured hair band, is 2-3/8" wide, knitted flat and joined to form a ring using a Kitchener (grafting) stitch. Optionally, the band can be seamed at the center back to form the ring. The design features garter stitch borders, a center cable of light pink Xs and dark pink Os and slip stitch accents. The band stretches in both directions so it is forgiving, size wise.
The pattern is provided in written and charted formats for medium headband (19"-21") and wristband (6"-7") circumferences. Instructions for custom sizing are also included. Read more for gauge, yarn and other pattern information:

Starburst Doily

In late winter when the snow was deep, the ice thick, and it looked like spring wouldn't arrive, I was compelled to crochet bright motifs the color of forsythia blossoms in spring. I crocheted over 40 motifs in different patterns and colors, including these cheerful yellow gold stars on an antique white mid-century mesh. I crocheted and blocked the star motifs in advance and then assembled the doily in an evening. The Starburst Doily is available for sale at my Etsy shop.
