Do you think this headband looks complicated to crochet? No, it’s absolutely not, you only need to know 2 stitches to make it. Long time ago when I just started my crochet journey, I made the same headband as a matching accessory to a baby gown that was decorated with ribbon and pearl beads. And that’s just the one way to use this lace. Your imagination is your limit. If you know someone who loves reading books, old-style not e-ones :), make him/her a beautiful bookmark as a small gift for an occasion or simply because you want to.
