I dreadlocked my hair about a year ago, and since then I’m always wearing something on my head to keep the locks back, away from my face, out of my knitting, crocheting, and everything else. I’ve become pretty reliant on a few staple hair accessories, but one Saturday, when preparing to play with some yarn, I realized I couldn’t find ANY of them. What’s a girl to do?

Designing in crochet always allows me to be spontaneous—that’s what I love about it. If I work a couple rows in a stitch pattern, and it ends up not being what I like, I just rip it out, slip my hook back into the one stitch that remains, and continue along like nothing ever happened...Read more

This is so pretty! I am new to crocheting and reading patterns.  Please help me with the instructions starting with the paragraph "Place markers" and then the next paragraph too.  I made the band easy.  The instructions are Greek to a novice like me.  Thank you for your time.  Mjb
