Easy Hair Kerchief Patterns

Here's the patterns for the hair kerchiefs that I made (I designed both of them using basic ideas of several other patterns for various things...) I still don't have a picture of Karah wearing the child version, but for pictures of the "normal" version you can go to my post right below this one. :)
