Crochet Pink Panta

First off, apologies for the pic - I seem to suffer from some sort of facial tic that causes me to stick my tongue out as soon as there's a camera pointing at me. I did take a load of tongue-free snaps, but they all made me look like I was about to sneeze, so this one was the best of a bad lot.

Second off, I don't actually know if this qualifies as a panta or not, but how could I resist the opportunity for that punnish post header? I decided to make this little headband thing the other night on a whim. I just chained till it was a little over-sized for my head (size 3mm crochet hook, I think), and did a row of double crochet (US sc) about 6 chains in (to make the fastening loop). Then I decided to do a row of half trebles (US hdc). For the bobble, I just made it up - slip stitched into the end of the headband and did a load of chains which I then kept knotting up until I had a nice big knot to act as a fastener.

I'm rather pleased with it - not least because it took about 5 seconds to create.
