Crochet Oya Headband - free pattern



Hello all! 
I have a cute weekend project for you today - an oya lariat / headband that you can whip up in minutes. 

Materials: 
1. Crochet thread #10
2. Metal hook 1.7 mm
3. Seed beads (amount depends on length of the lariat)

1.First thread the beads onto the thread. I always say better have too many, then run out of them. I used 20. 
(You can use more beads in the space between 2 flowers - I used just 1)

2. Start with the flower. 
The pattern goes like this: ch 4 and sl st in the very 1st st. Next tr3 in that 1st st and lastly ch 5 and sl st (also in the 1st st). One petal is made. Push a bead and sc over it. Repeat the above pattern for the next petal. When the second petal is done, sl st once in the 1st st of the first petal - do so with the other petals too. There should be 4.

3. Chain 15, push a bead, chain 15 more. Start a new flower. Repeat flower pattern. Work this until you reach desired length. Finish the headband with a flower. 

You can make it with sport yarn too, but the crochet thread makes it extra delicate and feminine. 

Enjoy it!

This is such a pretty headband, Maya. The flowers are sweet and I love how they trail down the back of the hair.

My little niece would love and want to make it too because she likes accessories.

Thank you for describing how to make it.
