Circle Headband Pattern

Image

A basic little pattern that works up quickly into a delightful headband. Given the simplicity of this pattern I’m probably not the first person to do this!!! But I thought I’d share on here as its perfect for people who like quick and easy patterns. 

 I made this one as a gift for my sister to say thank you for teaching me how to bake macaroons.

Instructions:

Chain a multiple of 8 sts. (So there are enough to fit comfortably around your head.)

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch 1, sk next 3 ch, in next ch make (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc), ch 1, sk 3 ch, sc in next ch (shell made). Rep from * all around ending the last rep with sl st in first sc to join.

Row 2: Turn so you are crocheting back along the original chain (the shells will form a circle with the previous shell). Ch3 *in centre on shell (3dc, ch1, 3dc) ch1, sk 3 chain . Sc in next chain (where you had previously sc in row 1), ch 1. Repeat from * End last repeat with sl st in first sc to join.

To join : Sl st into the opposite end of the headband taking care to ensure it is not twisted.

To decorate: Add flowers to cover the join. I used 2Petal Puff Stitch Flowers as these are wonderfully simple to make.

Although I’m from the UK I have used American terminology for the pattern. A conversion table for stitches can be found here: http://crochet.about.com/od/conversioncharts/a/termtranslate.htm

Abbreviations used: Ch – chain dc – double crochet, SC – single crochet, Sl st – slip stitch. sk – skip

Apologies for the poor quality of these photos  – taken on my mobile phone as I don’t have access to a digital camera at the moment.
