Sewing: If you wear a bonnet or kapp type covering there are great instructions to make your own, on this site:http://home.mindspring.com/~erin_renee/id2.html

You can also cut a bandana in half diagonally, hem it and wear it like a veil.

Crochet Bun Covering

For women who cover their hair for reasons such as: 1Cor. 11:1-16, or just to keep your hair out of the way while working.

I use cotton yarn and H hook.

Rnd1: Ch4. slip st to join and make ring. Ch2. 12DC in ring. join. Rnd2: CH2. 1dc in first st, 2dc in nxt. [1DC in nxt, 2DC in nxt]. repeat from [ to ]. Rnd3-5: Ch2. 2DC in first 1DC in nxt. [2Dc in nxt, 1DC in nxt] repeat. around. join. Rnd 6: CH2. 1DC in first , 2DC in nxt. [1DC in nxt, 2DC in nxt] repeat around. join. Cut a 12inch long piece of elastic 1/8" wide and weave it through the last row. Tie elastic and hide ends. Stretch over bun and secure with bobby pins if you did not use a hairnet over bun first.

You can make the covering any size just measure the distance over your bun (mine is 7 1/4" because I make a flat bun). Then make a flat circle about about 1" in diameter bigger than what you measured. My flat circle was about 8 1/4" in diameter. Weave in elastic a little shorter than the distance around your bun, because it stretches. Use a safety pin to keep the one end from slipping while your weaving the other end. Then tie it and hide the ends.

This covering can also be used as a hairnet under a veil or Kapp/bonnet.

New way to Crochet

You can turn cross-stitch patterns into crochet designs if you follow the graph diagram using single crochet stitches instead of cross-stitching over something. You can also follow knit diagrams the same way. Be sure to count the stitches properly. When changing colors work over unused strand until you need it again and then drop 2nd color and work over unused color. Sometimes you will not need the 1st color again in the current row, if so you can just drop the color and pick it back up on the next row where you need it.
