Chain 21
Row 1 - Sc in 2nd chain form hook and in each chain across, ch 1 turn (20 sc)

Row 2 thru 12 sc in back loop only ch 1 turn (20 sc)

Weave in ends

Place center of the bow over the seam on the headband and wrap the yarn tightly around the two pieces. This could take a few to several yards of yarn depending on how many times you want to wrap the yarn. I did a few wraps then adjusted the bow to be sure it was centered and scrunched to my liking. Then I continued to wrap till it looked like I wanted. Tie your yarn off in the back being sure that your knot is not in the center of the wrap. Tie it either near the top or bottom this way the knot is not poking you in the forehead. Weave in the ends.

Helpful Hints:
Always turn your work the same way at the end of each row. This way your ends are uniform. To adjust the size, just add more or less chains when making the starting chain.


For this headband I used 
an N hook and
2 strands of worsted weight yarn
held together

Chain as many as needed 
to fit around your head snugly 
but not too tight.

To do this 
I usually make the chain 
trying it around my head as I go
writing down how chains I made.
(so you know for the next try to add or subtract) 
Then I crochet two rows 
and fit it around my head
 to see if it fits the way I want.
If its good, I keep going.
If not I frog it and start over 
adding or subtracting 
chains as necessary.
(this is why you write down how many chains you started with)
The double strands of yarn 
work up like bulky yarn.

This is the first pattern I have written so let me know if you have any questions.

✽ Enjoy ✽
