Here is a quick little pattern that you can whip on in an evening. I will be posting a matching cowl, so keep an eye out for that coming up soon. This is also good for using up smaller amounts of yarn.
by Jeanne Steinhilber
- I used 2 strands of #2 marled yarn held together, but you can use any worsted weight yarn.
- Hook size 6.5mm K
Foundation dc 40. I have an average size head and like the headband a bit snug, but adjust up or down as needed with an even number of dc’s.
Bring ends together being careful not to twist.
Next, twist a half turn.
You are going to join by slst into the first space between beginning ch and first dc.
Slst, ch 4, dc into the same space creating the first V-st. Skip next space, dc, ch 1, dc in next sp (V-st).
Continue pattern around. When you get back to the beginning, the piece is flipped and you will be working in the opposite side. Work the V-st around again to the end. Join with slst in 3rd ch of beginning ch 4. Do not turn.
Ch 3, dc in each dc and ch 1 space around. Join with slst to 3rd ch. Do not turn.
Ch 1, sc in each dc around. Join with slst to first sc. Finish off.
Your headband will have a twist in it. I prefer to wear mine in the back.
Be creative! 🙂 – Jeanne – The Crochet Crowd
