T'riffic Jersey Headband -free crochet pattern-


I bought  this "T'riffic Yarn" a few months ago because it looked interesting.  It's basically a ball of polyester jersey fabric that's commonly used in t-shirts.  It's very stretchy.  I played around with it for a day, then December and custom orders got in my way and I kind of forgot about it until a couple days ago.  I thought I would give it another go with a headband design that was on my mind.  

I like it!  It's stretchy, so you don't have to worry too much about fit, however, I am pretty sure this pattern could be used with normal chunky yarn as well.  I will try that next and let you know when I get to it!

Another great aspect of this T'riffic Yarn is that:  "For every ball sold, a percentage of all proceeds will be donated to the Children's Miracle Network."
