1. Introduction: pro Shane is a skill that anyone can master. When you create something and you're almost at the end of your creation, it is always an amazing feeling to know that you will soon see the results of what you have been creating. My name is Karina, and I will be teaching this crow Shane class. In this cast, students will need it was necessary to start crashing. They will learn the basic crushing techniques which they can later take in creating many different projects for our project. Students will be making this headband. It is easy and quick to put together and does not require a lot of materials. So whenever you're ready, just go ahead and sign up for my course, and I will see you then. 2. What will you learn: in this course, we're going to learn basic Roshan techniques to start off with your project. You will learn how to make a slip knot. Next, you will learn how to make a change for the foundation of your headband. Then you will learn the basic crushing technique which is a single Cochet, and lastly, you will learn how to make an increase. So that's all that you will need to learn in this course. Next, I want to show you the materials that you will be needing for this project. 3. What will you need: Okay, so I want to show you the materials that we will be using for our headband project. So we're gonna be using yarn for our project. I'm going to use this pink color. You're not have to use the same color that I'm using. You use a different color. Just make sure that it is around the same thickness. So this is how thick Myron Iss and your yarn should be around this stick as well. Okay, so we're gonna have the yard. They were going to be using a crushing hook. I'm gonna be using the H hook. OK, so as you can see here, this is a chicken's a five millimeter hook. It would also be using scissors. It doesn't matter what kind of scissors they are, which is gonna cut off the ends at the end. Okay? And we would also be using a but in here, preferably around this size. It's a good size for your headband, cause you will be able to see the but in at the end of your project. So they said the only materials that we will be using for this project OK, so abusing yarn, H hook, scissors and a button. So once you have gathered all of your materials that we are ready to start on our headband project, I also forgot to mention that we're going to use pink throughout any needle to soar into her headband. 4. Part 1: Okay. So to start with our head Van, we need to create a Not so I'm gonna take my stream and I will be creating and not to start off our change. So this is how I creating. That's just take my my string might. So I just take my yard and I wrap it around my fingers like this, and I'm gonna take this yard, and I'm put it inside here, take my fingers out. And then I'm just gonna grab onto the string to the yard, and then I'm gonna grab it until you're and I'm just gonna pull the look up. So there we have a lot. And to create a chain, I'm going to stick my hook inside. Other Not that I'm gonna take both ends of the yard, and I'm just going to tying it up to speak show You leave a little small tell at the end. Okay. So now we'll be creating a chain for the foundation overhit band. So I'm gonna take the yard that is attached to the ball. The side that has touched it. We're gonna leave the tell out, and this is the way I grab my yard. So I take my yard and put it in front of my three fingers like this, then I'm just gonna hold the yarn like this. I'm gonna take my antics finger, and I'm gonna put my index finger underneath the yard And in the back of a year like this, then I'm gonna take my thumb and the middle finger, and I'm gonna grab the end of the chain here. Okay? So that is how we're going to grab our yard, and this is that we're going to grab our Okay, so we have our hook on, they said, and we have our yarn on this side. So now we're gonna take our foot and we're gonna put it all for the yard. We're gonna go underneath the yard and we're gonna grab it with the hook and pull it in through the look, OK, so we're gonna do that again. So how my yarn here and I'm sorry. I have my hook here in my yarn here. I'm gonna take my hook and I'm going to put it over the yard. Then I'm gonna go to the back of a yard and I'm gonna pull it in through the so that create to their created two chains. Okay, so we're going to keep doing this until we have a long John. Okay, you can see here the chain is starting to form. Just gonna go a bit quicker, fucking apart. So we want to create a long chain, and you're gonna measure the chain around your head and just make sure that if it's nice and tight, because if you make it loose than your headband is gonna be loose on your head and it's gonna keep coming off and that's not what we want. Okay, so we're gonna be doing this until we get a long chain. And as you can see here that Jamie's starting to form and if you can see, it kind of stretches slightly. So that is why when you measure to run your head, you wanted to nice and tight because it is going to stretch a bit. Not too much is a very big we don't not want to lose in your head, because the head man, it's gonna come off. OK, so I'm gonna go ahead and make the long chain, and then I'm gonna measure it around my head. And once I have finished, I will come back, but we will go on to the next step. Okay? So already finished my chain. And, um, I chained 84. I made 84 chains, and the number of chains that you make is gonna very depending on the size of your head of its to bigger, too small. So once we're finished with a chain, we're gonna go on to the next step. So we're gonna want to make a single crow Shea on every single one of these chains. And to do that, we're just gonna go ahead and I'm gonna stick my hook inside of a second chain. And I was going to go in through one loop, and I'm gonna take my Jorn, and I'm gonna go ahead and pull it in through that chain, and I am left off with two loops, so I'm just gonna take my urine again, and I want to pull it in both of the lips. So we have done a single cross shea on one of the chains, and we're gonna go onto the next chain, which is this one here, and just gonna go ahead and put your hook inside that chain. Then grab your yarn from behind. Pull it in through that chain and we are left off with two loops on your hook wrapped in your from behind employed and threw both of the loops. So then we have now coach single crows shade to chains So we're just going to keep doing that all across our chain until we get to the end and just go ahead and take your time. You do not have to go fast and just make sure that you go into every single one of the chains. Do not skip a chain because if you do, then that's just gonna create a hole. And that's not what we want for our for our headband. Okay, so if you can notice, the more you do it, the more you can see the pattern that is starting to create and looks very nice and very pretty. So I'm just gonna go ahead and keep doing this all across that yard until they get to the end and I'll go ahead and meet you at the end here, and I'll show you what to do next. 5. Part 2: Okay, so here I am at the end. I have already done the single Cochet all across my chain, and I am here at the end, and I'm just gonna go ahead and make that last single crush a oops. And that came apart. Gonna go ahead and do it again. Okay, so here I am at the end. Now, we're gonna go ahead and turn on work over like this. So we're gonna work on this side. You can see this is where we were. And this is where we have to work on now. Okay, so we have done that, not We have done a chain. We have done a single crashing, and we're gonna do an increase. So to make it in grace, this is where we're going to start off with the increased Here. It was a regular chain three. So one to and three, we have created an increase. Okay, so we're going to do the same thing here. We just haven't increased now, so we're gonna go. Um, we're gonna make a single question on every single chain. Now, if you can tell here, this is this Looks like a fish right here and we're gonna put our hook, remember that. We're gonna go into the second chain, and we're gonna pull it, put our hook in through the chain, and we're gonna go into both of the loops. Okay? Does they're gonna go into both of the loops. Okay, So you can see here. This is one open. This is the other looks. We're gonna go into both of them, so make sure you go into both of the loose because of you. Don't know. Just gonna create a rib effect, and that's we don't want that. So we went to both of the news that we're gonna go ahead and just to the same thing like we did earlier. We're just gonna go ahead into a single crush, a in every single chain, and just remember to go into both of the loops. Okay, who keeps coming out so you can tell where I already have my single Cochet on this change going to the next one which is in here. You can see here it iss, and I'm gonna go into both of the loops. Just gonna go in and grab my pull my going through there, and I'm just gonna go ahead and keep doing a single crow. Shea all across my headband, you can see the pattern that it's creating. CE looks really nice and pretty, so just go ahead and keep doing that all across your yard and again I will meet you at the end. How about the end of the road? And I was gonna go ahead and finish missing Crow Shea. I went to the last change. I think so. When we get to the end, we're always going to do the same thing. So we're just gonna go ahead and trainer work around, we're gonna work on this thing. So now I'm just gonna go ahead and do the same thing I did earlier, and we're just gonna go ahead and change three toe, one to and then three, and then we're gonna go ahead and single crush all across our chain. It's another we have made in increase in change three. We're gonna go in and just to a single cruciate all across our row here, the same way we did failure. The members keep the first thing and going to the 2nd 1 and go on to both loops. So we're just gonna go ahead and do this all across our chain and just to the same thing until you get the with that you want. And I think I'm gonna go ahead and crow Shea single crow. Shea, um, five more rows. So I'm gonna go ahead and just do this one and then do five more so you can start seeing the pattern and start to create. Looks very nice. And it's very, very creamy. Hes it, Just continue on doing this and to get the with that you want. So once we finish during the roads that we want to go ahead and meet you back here so I can show you what the next step will be. 6. Part 3: Okay, so I already finished my rose. And this is the with that might have been it's gonna be and actually did more rose. And I said I was gonna do and have a total of 13 single crow shade of rose. Okay? And you can see the pattern. It's really pretty. So what? That we're finished off during the roast. Wear a headband? Oh, I already could appease a long piece out of my yard already. Cut my yarn, and I left it along, tell at the end, and I was just gonna go ahead and put thes ends together. So they're going to go like this and just make sure that when you put them together, they are aligned at the end. Okay, so now I'm just going to go ahead and take my I'm gonna go ahead and take my yard and pull it in to the last loop, and I'm actually just gonna pull my whole yarn in, and then I'm just going to secure that so it won't come off. Okay, Now, I'm just gonna put my yarn, they're behind. And when you put them together, just make sure the lineup, Okay, Now I'm gonna take my hook and I'm going to inserted into this chain here, okay? And then you're gonna go onto the next one, and you're gonna inserted into the same chain so that when you put them together, they're aligned. Now, I'm gonna take my yarn from behind that if I was doing the same question and I'm just gonna pull it in through and just pull the whole yarn and through that chain and just pull all of it, take the whole yard and just pull it off and just turn it around and go on to the next chain, which is right here. Grab a like this and just pull it in through that chain and turn it back around this way. Go ahead and go in to the next chain, and it doesn't have to necessarily going through every single one of the chains. Okay, just we've your yarn back and forth and you don't know Have to go to every single change. Like I said. Okay, just enough chains where it will hold. Just make sure that they are aligned. Okay, so I already waived my yarn into the chains, and I were just gonna take the urine that we were working with, and I cut it off a little bit, so was too long. Now we're just gonna go ahead and take our yard and we're going to pull the yarn, like so to create a scrunch so you can see how it's growing chest up like that in the middle. I'm gonna take our other yarn, and we're gonna tight around the yard that we were working with. I'm just gonna go ahead and take my working Jorn and then I will be wrapping the yarn around my headband. Just make sure God, it goes in the middle of the headband. So I'm just gonna take my yarn and wrap it around my head my head band a few times just to create a more scrunch look. And we're just gonna go ahead in Thai are headband. I think that it's gonna tide of another time. Now we're just gonna go ahead and take the ends over headband and we're just gonna cut them off with their scissors 7. Part 4: Okay, so we're almost finished with our head band. Um, so just the same. Using the same techniques that you used to cut your head event. You're gonna create this little small rectangle and you're gonna lead to started gonna leave a little small tell at the happy end. So you finish, just leave, like, another tell, but just make it longer. And now I'm just gonna go ahead and stick my hook in here, and then I'm just gonna go ahead and pull my yard all the way through just to secure that. So we're gonna attach this onto a headband. So here we have a headband. Just gonna turn it inside out here. We have our head bent. Now I'm just going to attach this onto the headband, and we're gonna touch it this way so that you see the pattern on the headband. The rules are running horizontally, and when we put based on a headband, there were also gonna view running vertically, so I can just give it, like, more depth. So to attach this, we're going to do the same way you attached the answer your head band together. Just make sure that it's in the middle of a headband. Just go ahead and roll it over like this. I was gonna turn mine around this way. It doesn't seem what he had been. Make sure that your aunt's line. So now I'm just gonna go ahead and take my hook and from my hearing back, take my hook, just go into the first chain, and I'm gonna grab my hook, my gun from behind and just pull it to do. And this time we're just gonna go ahead and pull it over. We're not gonna We've it Just gonna put our yarn. Do you like this last stitch at the end? Hey, still there? We have already so bad. So remember the later tell that we left at the end. So we're just gonna go heading. You start to tying this up. Just gonna do another one. Not okay. So just go ahead and take your scissors and just cut the ants off when you turn it inside out. This is how it's supposed to look. And then our last step is gonna be sewing this on. So I already have my needle and mike threat. If you have a tapestry meal, you can use the same yard they used to. So you're, I mean, to Croshere your head abound, and just on so that often.
