Are you tired of spending your hard earned money on a crochet pattern only to find it poorly written? Is a free pattern or tutorial really better?
This is a new segment where I review a crochet pattern and give my honest opinion! I am doing these reviews secret shopper style! The pattern designer doesn't know!
This month's pattern review is the Heidi Headwrap by Danielle Arsenuik. Please remember that this pattern review is just my own honest opinion! Scroll down to find out if I thought this pattern was a bargain or a bust!

Let's Talk Price!
This crochet pattern is available for C$5.00 CAD about S3.80 US dollars. I believe it is priced fairly. To be totally honest I snagged this pattern while it was on sale! Who doesn't like a bargain?! Danielle runs sales on her patterns pretty frequently so if you are interested in buying this pattern then go follow her on Facebook and Ravelry so you don't miss out on a future sale!
Materials needed for this project:
-6.5mm crochet hook (or hook to obtain gauge)
-Any bulky weight yarn (5), The pattern calls for Lion Brand - Color Made Easy. The pattern also states that you can also substitute for 2 strands of worsted weight yarn put together.
Here are a few of my Amazon picks!
I would consider this a beginner/advanced beginner project. You must know how to hdc in the 3rd loop as well as be familiar with blo.

Was it a bargain or a bust? How do I overall rate the pattern?
The pattern was easy to follow. I am currently on a stash busting mission so I chose to use two strand of worsted weight held together. I had no problem doing so. The project still turned our according to size and gauge. All necessary information was included! I was able to complete my Heidi Headwrap in about 1 hour. (I would like to point out that I am a really fast crocheter. I was also familiar with the stitches used so I was able to whip mine up quickly!)
Overall I would recommend this pattern! While it may not be a free pattern the price is still very reasonable! I don't mind paying for patterns because I am very familiar with the hard work that goes into them! I plan on keeping this pattern in my arsenal for last minute birthday gifts and Christmas stocking stuffers!
I really don't have any complaints or big critiques! It's a great project for beginners or anyone who wants to add a little crochet texture in their life!
