Crochet Alternative for Calorimetry Headwrap

I recently knitted the Calorimetry as it had been on my Ravelry Q for some time and it looked like it would be a quick knit and a little break from more tedious knitting.

However, I didn’t care for the way the pattern was written at all. It used short rows which I love, but explained no way to hide the wraps, which I thought was strange. So, I hid them as I had learned, but the pattern really needs to be re-written so I will have an easier time of knitting it next time, that is if there is a next time!

Anyway, I happened upon this FREE pattern below at NexStitch and it combines my love of Crochet as well as Tunisian Crochet. This one looks promising! It calls for the use of velcro, which I don’t think is a great idea, as velcro could get caught up in your hair, so I’ll fashion a button closure of some kind for mine.

So have you knit Calorimetry and did you like it? If you crochet why not give Honey Panta a go… and let me know what you think of it!

I’ll be giving it a go for sure!

  1. Just a note on the knitted version – I kept the unwraped holes because it makes it adjustable. That way mine fit me and my daughter. I must admit it took me a few copies to figure that out :) Also – it’s pretty easy to adjust – I no longer make mine as wide. I can’t wait to see your crochet version!

  2. Thanks for the great pattern! I just learned how to crochet and am on the lookout for new projects to try.
