Bad Hair Day Head Scarf Knitting Pattern

by | May 14, 2020 | Accessories, Head, Knitting Patterns, Scarves, Summer | 7 comments

With Covid-19 quarantine still very much a reality here, it’s been a long while since I’ve had a hair cut. So I decided to create a free knitting pattern for this lacy head scarf to help me out on all of my bad hair days… suffice to say I’ve been wearing it every day. Folks, I don’t recommend going red before a global pandemic hits. It’s not a pretty picture.

I believe my last trip to the salon was before Christmas? Anyways, I think you’ll be seeing a lot more head wrap patterns around here in the near future. I’m currently working out some ideas for a crochet version- so stay tuned my patient crocheters!

How has quarantine affected your knitting and crochet? I find myself full of inspiration all day long. I’ve come up with so many new ideas.

Part of me wishes I could crochet a cocoon around myself and hibernate until the world gets less weird.

You guys might notice that the blog looks a lot different than it used to. It was actually down for quite a while, and I didn’t intend on bringing it back. I let the domain name expire, lost all of the old content, and was about to move on when the Coronavirus hit. Around that same time a huge, stressful life event took place. I returned to my hobby as a way to find peace throughout the day, and quickly found myself missing this blog.

I’m actually kind of excited to have a fresh start, and I’m loving the new look! I hope you like it too. I have a few exciting things in the works, including free knitting patterns, crochet patterns, kits, supplies, and more. I’m also offering a unique pattern membership. For the cost of a cup of coffee per month- you can have access to ALL of my knitting patterns and crochet patterns in ad-free downloadable format! If you buy more than a few patterns per year, the membership will pay for itself. Check it out below!

      I hear that! You could always bobby pin your hair up in back, then wrap the scarf around your head for an updo!

      Hi Eileen! Yes it can! You will need to cast on an even number of stitches, and eliminate the K1 at the beginning of row 3. Instead of garter stitch in between the drop stitch rows it will be stockinette stitch which will be pretty.

      That’s awesome, can’t wait to see it! Copper hair is great until salons close down for months! But we knitters have an advantage. I’d love to see your finished piece, you can tag me on instagram @margoknitsblog #margoknits #margoknitsblog
