My daughter LOVES Wonder Woman. She hasn’t even seen the movie (she’s only 5) but somehow she knows that Wonder Woman can kick some booty. So last night I grabbed a hook and some yarn and started coming up with a very simple headpiece for her to wear around the house. When she woke up this morning, she was ecstatic to find a headpiece for her just like Wonder Woman’s.
-Size H (5.0mm) crochet hook (I used my custom #BossBabe ergonomic Clover crochet hook made by Chloe Rebecca Boutique, because seriously, how fitting is it to use a #BossBabe hook to make anything Wonder Woman related?)
-Yarn (I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in SUNGOLD and GRAPHITE)
-Elastic Hair Tie
Row 1: leaving a long tail in the beginning, chain until you reach your desired length (from middle of forehead around to the back of head so that both ends of the chain just touch each other.
Row 2: SC in second chain from hook and every chain across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 3: SC across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 4-5: Repeat row 3. Fasten off leaving a tail long for joining hair elastic.
Band detail: using GRAPHITE, join on front side of band between row 2 and 3. Surface stitch (slip stitch) the length of the band. At the end, chain 1, turn, continue slip stitching around the entire edge of band taking care to slip stitch+chain 1+slip stitch in each corner. **NOTE: Leave long SUNGOLD tails hang while doing the detail slip stitch round.** Fasten off and weave in GRAPHITE ends.
Add Elastic Hair Tie: Fold over one end of band (wrong sides together) and sew the edge to the band tucking the elastic band in the fold. Secure tightly. Repeat for the opposite end of band.
Front Triangle Detail: With SUNGOLD and this pattern, make a triangle of your desired length (I made 11 rows using this pattern ). Once the desired length is achieved, chain 2 and HDC down one side, 2 HDC+chain 2+2HDC in the bottom tip of triangle, HDC up the other side of triangle. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Using GRAPHITE, join at the top left corner of your upside down triangle and slip stitch along the next two sides. Fasten off and weave in ends. Using GRAPHITE, join at the top left corner of your upside down triangle between the triangle and the HDC row. Slip stitch along that line to create a second “V” detail inside the first slip stitch detail you just finished. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Attach your triangle detail centered on your band. Before weaving in end, add additional star detailing to the center of triangle.
