  3. Your pattern doesn't make a lot of sense :(

  4. I got messed up in the third paragraph....there don't seem to be enough stitches to go around. Anyone else having problems or is this my fault?

  5. I finished one up the other day. It turned out super cute! I don't remember having any trouble with the amount of stitches. Wish I could help you, Jahana. Good luck! Thanks for sharing the pattern, 4tdesigns. My sister just asked me to make her a head wrap and she's going to love this!

  6. I am having trouble reading this pattern; I have made various projects beyond beginner level before, but I don't understand how to work with the front side facing me at all times. Can anyone that has completed this project (or knows how to read this pattern) give me some advice as to how to complete this project?
    Thank you so much!

    1. Hi ally instead of turning and going back down the same side you will go down the other side which is the chain edge.you will be crocheting around and around the work instead of turning. I hope this helps :-)

    2. @Ally, @liz13506 is correct.
      The foundation chain (33) you'd be going "forward". On sc 32, you'd going in the opposite direction, but still facing your work. When last of sc 32 is reached, rotate your work slightly so that now you may start step 3 (the cross-stitches). Rotate slightly so that you may continue after the stitch 11 chain is made.And so on, going around in a "oval circle".

      Don't flip your work. Keep going around so that sometimes you're looking at it "heads up", sometimes "heads down", but never from the the back--make sure the yarn tail is never in front.
      Sometimes placing the work on your lap helps with orientation. I consider my self a beginner and was able to keep track of sides this way.

      Imagine the motion made as if a person is winding yarn with the help of somebody else 2 hands extended, or around an elbow.
      Or, Imagine placing a ribbon around the edge of an oval plate. You'd have to force the plate to rotate in one hand, while wrapping the ribbon around with the other. That's the motion. I hope this helps someone.

  8. Thank you so much for this pattern. I am glad somebody directed to this blog from the comments on a blog featuring a similar headband which was for sale on Etsy. Made it in 2 evenings.

    Directions are precise, especially in the first 2 paragraphs (round 1 and 2). Had a little trouble on completing round 3. However, Now that I have a better idea, I've started a second headband last night.

    I am very pleased and will gladly buy your patterns. Thanks again.

  9. I'm starting a digital Crochet magazine and I would love to feature this pattern in the first issue. I generally will publish one of your patterns in the issue, link it to your blog or shop, and make sure people know where to go to get your other patterns. Plus, you will get a free half page ad (valued at $150). I estimate the first issue will have about 20,000 views. No money will change hands, but I think it will be a great way for you to get more readers!

    Let me know if you want to talk more :)

    Thanks,
    Jessica

  10. What do I need to do to get permission to make this item and sell it. I noticed a note that I was not to use this for anything unless it was for personal use. I am retiring soon and starting a home based business and would like to add this item to my crochet list. I would be more than happy to buy this but I believe I saw a note that the item was not longer in etsy. Thank you. Tammy

  11. I to was wondering if it is ok to create this to sell. I will not release the pattern but would be happy to post visit to you if I do end up selling (with permission) this lovely head wrap

  12. I have some of these same questions but I don't see any replys to any of the questions.

  13. I would also like to know if I can sell already made items from this pattern, of course not the pattern itself. I've already got people who are asking to buy when they saw the one I made for myself. Would appreciate a quick reply.

  14. Paragraph 3 says 14 half double crochet in next. I think you mean half double crochet in next 14. This part totally confused me.

  15. Can anyone tell me the finished length or size of the headwrap? When I made it, it was too small for an adult size head; much smaller than the one in the picture. I'm wondering if there is a part in the pattern I need to pay particular attention to to get the length right. Thanks

  17. This is such a cute pattern. I wonder if I am doing something wrong....the left side of my headband swoops up to the left, and the right side swoops down to the right, creating an "S" shape. Is this correct? Cannot tell by your patterns. Thank you.

  18. This is a beautiful head wrap, but I did run into some difficulty deciphering the pattern. Here is the solution I came up with: After finishing paragraph 1 (you just made all the cross stitches, and then made the 12-stitch chain at the end and single-crocheted back along it) you now need to repeat paragraph 1 again in its entirety before going on. This means you have to do cross stitches along all 32 single crochet stitches, and then make another 12-stitch chain at this end of the piece, and single crochet back along that chain. Now you are ready to begin paragraph 2, and the rest of the piece should work out fine. Good luck and I hope this helps!

  19. Have you ever done this pattern for toddlers? I am looking for something just like this but for toddlers.

  20. When it says slip stitch to beginning, where exactly is that? I get the gist of working around but I don't seem to be getting past the second paragraph.

  21. Very cute headwrap, however 3 people in my group have worked this pattern and find it very clumsily written. 2 of us have over 100 years in crochet work. It is not precise where to put your next sts! The one lady who decided to finish it also finds it lopsided as one other person stated here.
