Yarn: Lambs Pride, or any worsted weight yarn


Key:
CH: CHAIN
DC: DOUBLE CROCHET
SC: SINGLE CROCHET
SS: SLIP STITCH

PATTERN:

-CH 44

-PLACE 2 DC IN THE 3RD CH FROM THE HOOK, SKIP 2 CH, SC IN NEXT CH, CH 2, PLACE 2 DC IN THE SAME CH AS YOU JUST PLACED THE SC.SKIP 2 CH, SC IN NEXT CH, CH 2, PLACE 2 DC IN THE SAME CH AS YOU JUST PLACED THE SC, ETC TIL THE END OF THE ROW.  SC IN THE LAST CH, AND CH 2



-PLACE 2 DC IN THE SC YOU JUST MADE, SC IN THE NEXT CH 2 SPACE (NOT THE CHAIN ITSELF, BUT IN THE LOOP MADE BY THE CH 2), CH 2, THEN PLACE 2 DC IN THE SAME LOOP, SC IN THE NEXT CH 2, CH 2, DC IN THE LOOP AGAIN, ETC TILL THE END OF THE ROW, SC IN THE TURNING CH OF THE LAST ROW, CH 2

 
REPEAT THIS LAST ROW FOR 2 MORE ROWS, AT THE END OF THE LAST ROW CH 30, SS INTO THE OTHER END OF THE HEADBAND, SS ACROSS TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SHORT END OF THE HEADBAND, CH 30 AGAIN, SS TO THE OTHER END OF THE HEADBAND, AND FASTEN OFF!

Love it thanks for sharing. If I only had a forehead and not a twohead, maybe headbands would look decent

This is really pretty! I was thinking the green one you made would be a great St. Patrick's day accessory. I will be linking up at www.tangledhappy.blogspot.com next month. Thanks for sharing this! :)

Thanks so much for posting your lovely pattern. I'd been looking for ages for a wider headband to cover a couple of bald patches that remain after chemo. It was so wonderful to find your pattern stitch so soothing and medatitive. So much so that I'm now hooking a wrap to bring a little extra comfort in your lovely stitch pattern. Thank you again. As well as a lovely crochet pattern, you've given me that very precious thing, a few moments of complete peace and restfulness. Paula. UK
