Basket-full of Poppies

By: Kirsten Holloway from kirstenhollowaydesigns.com

Basket-full of Poppies

"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."

You will need to know how to make a Chainless Starting Double crochet. Written instructions are included.
For the flower: the 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.

I am completely stealing those huge poppies for my Dia de los Muertes Catrina! They are perfect for the costume Im designing. I love the headband, too. Its a little bit hard to see from the photos, but the basic headband is worked in the Basketweave Stitch. I appreciate that the designer uses the same technique for the ends as I do! Glad to know I am doing it right.

This project looks very labor intensive. Im not sure about how to work a chainless starting double crochet so I will definitely have to learn that. The instructions for the flowers look like they are very difficult to make, but I will work slow and steady and hopefully will be able to complete it.

I love poppies. I have them in artwork on my walls, shower curtain, dinner plates and towels. Now I can wear them too. It's pretty, easy and I can use up some left over yarn. This is going to be a gift to myself. Thank you for sharing this design and idea.
