Gather your tresses with a tiny posy crochet hair accessory! A small crocheted motif decorates a button covered in a contrasting fabric. Use the type of buttons that have small hooks on the backside; they do not require any tools to fasten.

Designer: Brenda K. B. Anderson

Finished Size: About 1½ " diameter.

Yarn: Nazli Gelin Garden 10 thread (100% Egyptian giza mercerized cotton; 308 yd [282 m]/1¾ oz [50 g]): #700-43 robin egg or #701-35 lime multi; one ball makes many. Thread distributed by Universal Yarn.

Hook Size: 7 (1.65 mm) steel hook. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

Notions: 1½ " half ball cover buttons (must be the kind that requires no tools and has hooks in the back to catch fabric); small piece of thin fabric to cover button; yarn needle; one hair elastic in coordinating color.

Gauge: Motif should measure about 2" diameter.
