I promise more thoughtful content soon, but in the meantime- what I wore yesterday. (The picture is from evening, so it has slipped back a little- it started out just behind my hairline.)
One scarf with the ends wrapped in a crown style, one behind the other, with a small headband in front of them, and 3 crocheted flowers (sewn onto over-sized bobby-pins) attached to the front "crown". Not 4th of July colors, but a little bit festive while still aiming for a minimum of heat-retention. (We did some walking around yesterday, and I didn't want to overheat too badly.)
The flowers are 3 layers of crochet in different colors (great for using scraps of kippah thread). Let's see if I can remember the pattern- they make a nice little accessory, and I think they work even better on a scarf like this than they did in my hair.
Round 1: Make a loop and chain 5. (dc, chain 2) 7 times, join to third chain stitch.
Round 2: slip stitch into first space. (sc, 3 dc, sc) in each space. join. Fasten off first color.
Round 3. Fasten new color with a sc around one of the dc from round 1. chain 5. (dc around next dc from round 1, chain 3), around and join- 8 sections.
Round 4: slip stitch into first space. (sc, 4dc, sc) in each space. join and fasten off.
Round 5: Fasten new color with a sc around one of the dc from round 1. chain 6. (dc around next dc from round 1, chain 4), around and join- 8 sections.
Round 6: slip stitch into first space. (sc, 5dc, sc) in each space. join and fasten off.
Alternately, you can substitute (sc, 2 dc, tc, 2 dc, sc) for round 6, to give slightly pointier leaves.
Then simply sew or glue to a bobby-pin, safety pin, or clip, and you're all set.
