Basket-full Of Poppies Crochet Headband
"The basket-full of poppies is a late-summer statement headband, that is sure to make you stand out in a crowd! The band uses a modified basket stitch, which will be easy to master for crochet lovers of all skill levels. The flowers are a little more complex, but after making the first one, the second should go fairly easily. Because this headband is worked from one end to the other, it is easy to customize for children as well as adults."
NotesThe ch 1 before or after dc stitches should be lose. You will be slip stitching into the ch 1 itself--not the ch-1 space.
Petals are worked over two rounds. You'll be slip stitching up, and down the petals to begin and end the second round.
