If you follow me on Instagram you got a sneak peak of this project. Over the weekend I worked on a few headband tutorials for you all. I was able to create these beauties with some shirts out of my goodwill pile. Today for you I have the how to for the knotted girl there in the middle. Pleasantly nautical right? I was also thinking it would look great made out of a thick rope or cording. Maybe someday I will try.
First you are going to start by cutting six half inch strips from your t shirt. After cutting them, give them a good tug, stretch them out – making it into T shirt yarn. Then you will divide them into two groups of three strands.
Next you are going to place the first group in this ribbon formation. These two ends will now be known as A and B.
Now you are going to take your second group of yarn and place it on top of the first grouping, in a smily face formation. These ends will now be known as 1 and 2.
Now take end 2 and place it under end B
Next take end 1 and place it under the loop, so that you see it down the middle.
Take end 2 and place it over the first part of the loop, under end 1 and then back out over the back part of the loop.
And, you are almost done, gently pull all four ends, you will begin to see the knot form. Pull it as tightly as you want, the tighter you go the smaller the knot becomes. You can finish it off with a small knot on the back that holds all the strands together, and hides nicely under your hair.
Pretty great right? Come back next week for the next headband tutorial. And if you make one up, let us see it #jittheadbands on instagram!!
