Crochet Headband Instructions
Note: If you want to make the headband longer or shorter adjust your starting chain by a multiple of 5 + 3. A chain of 63 will fit a head size of 15” – 22”.
Row 1: 5 hdc in 3rd chain from hook, sk next 2 sts, slst in next, sk next st. *5 hdc, sk next 2 sts, slst in next, sk next st* Repeat from * to * to end of row skipping second to last st. Work 11 hdc in last st.
Note: The 11 hdc you did in the last stitch of row 1 will take you around to the underside of the chain you just worked across. Row 2 will be worked in the underside of row 1.
Row 2: Working under the chain, slst into the skipped stitch from row 1 just before the last stitch where the 11 hdc were worked. Work 5 hdc in same st as the 5 hdc of row 1. *slst in next slst, 5 hdc in same st as the 5 hdc of row 1* rpt from * to * till end of row. Work 6 hdc in last st. Join to 1st st with slst.
