Intro/Knotted Headband

     Hey guys! I wanted to start a crocheting blog for the summer as I will be going on lots of trips and having lots of free time in cars, planes, etc. and really wanted to take crocheting up as a hobby instead of just a few projects here and there.I have just begun crocheting, so my projects will be simple at first and more complicated as we go along. If you are also just beginning to crochet, great! Crocheting is a great craft to get into. Also, if you are just starting, I encourage you to get an account on Ravelry.com. It is an online community of knitters and crocheters, and has awesome, (mostly) free patterns that range from first time projects to patterns for people with years of experience. And again, if you are beginning crocheting, that's awesome! The skills for crocheting will last you a lifetime.

     To start off, I found this awesome pattern on Ravelry. It is a knotted head band project, found on All About Ami (link to her blog below). What I love is that it is worked horizontally, so your beginning chains are the circumference of the headband, so you can make it as thick or as thin as you want.
