As the weather gets cooler we all need a little something to keep us warmer.
This easy to make crochet headband is perfect for those times! The texture on this headband is so beautiful and is great for those who already know how to make basic crochet stitches.
All you need is some bulky yarn and a 10mm hook to get started. Full written downloadable crochet pattern is available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

3 skipped chains of row 1 counts as 1st dc
Row 1: Dc in 4th chain from hook, *ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch* rpt from * to * ending with dc in last ch. Ch 2 turn. (9)

Repeat row 3 until you have reached 19″-20″ for adult size. Remember to keep the length at least one inch smaller than head circumference.
Finishing row: Sc in 1st ch space, dc in skipped stitch under ch space, (sc, dc in skipped st under ch space) rpt () in each ch 1 space till end of row. End with hdc in last st.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew short ends of headband together. You can do this any way you are comfortable. I do not recommend using slip stitches as the front of the headband will be too bulky.
Once ends are sewn together wrap yarn continually around headband seam until the desired look has been achieved.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
