Here is another great Odds-&-Ends buster! Headbands are extremely quick projects that take minimal material. This is a great beginner project that can be finished in no time at all. I like the look of this headband. If i’m being completely honest, I think it would make a GREAT start to a hat, but now I’m getting ahead of myself. Ok, without further chatter on my part here is this pattern! Good luck and enjoy making this headband.

- Red Heart Super Saver Yarn
- Chunky yarn
- Size J hook
- Size H/8-5.00 MM Hook
- embroidery needle
- ch- chain
- st – stitch
- dc – double crochet
Row 1: Ch 16. Yarn Over and dc into the third st from your hook. Dc in each st for the entire row for a total of 14 stitches. At the end, ch 2.
***Row 2: Dc into the back loop of each st for the entire row. You will have 14 stitches. At the end, ch 2 and flip your work over to start the next row.
Row 3: Dc into the front loop of each st for the entire row. At the end, ch 2 and flip your work again to start the next row. ***
Row 4-35: Repeat *** instructions from row 2-3.
For my head, 35 rows was enough, if your head is smaller or bigger, simply adjust how many rows you do. When you are finished, fold your headband in half to line up the seams. Use your embroidery needle to sew the ends together. Weave in all ends.
For the bows I used a size J Hook and an extra chunky yarn that I had laying around.
Row 1: Ch 10 then Dc into the third st from your hook. Dc into each st for the row. At the end, ch 1 then tie off your end. Weave in your loose ends of yarn.
Find the middle of the bow. Cut a 2 foot length of the same yarn and wrap it many times tightly around the middle. Be sure to leave extra yarn at the ends so that you can tie the yarn off.
Decide where you would like to place the bows on your headband. I preferred the right side. Line them up and begin to attach them to the headband using the loose ends from when you tied the centers.
Now you’re all done! Enjoy keeping your ears warm and looking great while you do it!
