Granny Stripe Crochet Headbands

About a month ago, I came across this great crochet headband pattern for the Granny Stripe Headband/Earwarmer from Sara at tangled happy.  Being familiar with the granny square stitch, I thought I would give it a try and here are just a couple of headbands that I've been able to finish (complete with crochet flowers!)

I really like this pattern ... Sara did a fantastic job of writing up clear instructions, making it super easy to follow!  These crochet up rather quickly and you can have some great fun with changing up the colors and variations. The crochet flower pattern is from a book that I found at the library.  It was easy to crochet the flower and it allowed for two or three rows of petals.

This pattern has even spurred me into thinking how you could do so many other stitches.  I think that is one thing that I enjoy the most about trying out the different patterns that I find, usually through Ravelry.  Most follow basically a similar design concept and once you have that foundation down, it's easy to see how you can create some really amazing crocheted wearables!
