Making the Head Band
Ch 55 and sl st to beginning ch to form a ring. Place your marker here. Sc all sts around. After third row, ch 1 cut yarn and change to dark purple.
Round 4 (with Dark Purple)
Attach your yarn in the 2nd sc from where you double crocheted the previous round with a sc connection, when I say that I mean instead of sl stitching your color on, pull up the yarn instead of pulling it through the loop and then get more yarn and pull it through the two loops like a SC, like shown below.
This will count as your first sc, sc in the next 2 stitches as well, then do a trc into the space below on the previous row, like shown below
after you TRC, make sure you do not work a sc in the space behind the TRC, continue to do 1 SC in the next 3 sts, then do another TRC, and repeat til end of round. Then ch 1 and cut your yarn, change to light purple.
Round 5 (with Light Purple)
Attach your yarn using the SC way again, but make sure you start somewhere else on the project, don't attach your yarn all at the same place because it makes kind of a seam. So attach it to the left of any TRC and start your 3 sc's, the third sc you end up on the top of a TRC from the previous round. So that your TRC of this round falls in line in a diagonal pattern going to the left.
Continue doing the 1 sc, 3 times then 1 TRC until end of round. Ch 1 cut yarn and back to White.
Repeat round 5
Repeat rounds 4-6
Rounds 10 & 11
Sc for 8 sts then do a decrease, repeat til end of round sl st into beginning st, ch 1 and cut yarn, hide all your tails. At the end of round 11 you should have 45 sts
Making the Flower
Change to your 3.5 MM hook
Round 1 (with yellow)
ch 4 and sl st to beginning ch to form a ring. Ch 1 and sc 8 into ring, sl st into beginning st to form a ring (8 sts) ch 1 cut yarn, switch to dark purple
Round 2 (with dark purple)
Sc 2 in all sts around, sl st into beginning st (16 sts)
ch 3 and pull yarn up a bit, Trc 4 into same sp, ch 3 and pull up a bit sl st into same st. Sc into next 3 sts (watch out here because first stitch hides) ch 3 and repeat same as before to make next petal, sc 3 and ch 3, repeat til you have 5 petals, after 5th petal sc 1, then sl st in last st, ch 1 cut yarn.
Now using your tapestry needle, get a bit of the dark purple and cut a decent size piece, tie a knot in one end and thread the other through the eye, work your way around the inside of the petals, keeping the outside of the petal to be free to come up, giving it a bent look. (as shown in picture below) (You don't have to sew it this way, it's up to you)
Makes the petals stand out a little more. Also in the center yellow part, if you have a gap showing uneven from when you added the dark purple, this is your chance to hide it, sew over the yellow with this dark purple and even it out.
That's it, enjoy your new look and warm ears!
