I have been trying to test less to make time to work on my own projects. But when I started seeing posts of lovely flower hair pieces from Sick 'Lil Monkeys on Facebook, I decided to join in.
I had the chance to test the twist holders.The small version is the blue pansy, and the rose is the large version.
It was my first time using the Sizzle line from Red Heart. At first I was thinking of using a different yarn I had, but I wanted to see how different Sizzle was. This was also my first time using my B hook.
The thread did slip around at first. But after getting the first few stitches in, the flower started coming together. The Sizzle thread had such a nice, clean look to it. The nylon texture was really smooth too, compared to other rough nylon yarns I have. The thread was strong, and it gave the flower a shimmery effect.
The e-book has 6 flower patterns to choose from. I'm glad I got the chance to try out 2 different types.
There are so many varieties of hair accessories you can make with Sick 'Lil Monkeys pattern. You can purchase the full e-book on her Ravelry page.
Believe me, once you try one of the patterns, you will be jumping to try the rest of her ebook. To prove this, Sick 'Lil Monkeys is sharing two free patterns. You can find the pattern for the Braided Ivy and Headband on the Sick 'Lil Monkeys blog. This beautiful design made me want to try it out!
She is also sharing the Hair Comb and Rose Pattern on the Cre8tion Crochet website. Look how beautiful this hair comb looks! Imagine how many other flower combinations you can add to this design!
