Evalyns headband is a quick project that is so cute! Sure to look absolutely adorable on all of our little princesses regardless of their age. If you cant decide which color to make it in, don’t worry! It works up so quickly you can make it in several color combinations in very little time! This headband is worked using cotton so its nice and light and no need to worry about it being hot!
Aunt Lydias Thread
SLST – Slip Stitch
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
Picot – Tutorial can be found on Moogly Blog HERE
Headband: with 1.65mm
CH 9 + 2
Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook and in next 3 stitches, CH2, skip the next 2 stitches, and DC in remaining 3 stitches
Row 2: CH2, turn, DC in the first 3 stitches, CH2, skip the CH2 space, DC in the last 4 stitches
Row 3: CH2, turn DC in the first 4 stitches, CH2, skip the CH2 space, DC in the last 3 stitches
Repeat row 2 and 3 until desired length is *reached. Do not finish off
* I like my length to fit around the head slightly loose because when you add in the contrasting stripe the headband will tighten up a bit.
Edging: Side facing while working edging will be your right side
CH1, (SC, Picot, SC) in side of a DC, repeat from *to* across edge of beginning CH.
With hook on the right side of project and yarn (with beginning loop already formed) on the wrong side, place hook through any CH2 space (from front to back) and place beginning loop on hook and pull hook with loop on it to the right side. You will still hold the yarn on the wrong side of the project.
With loop on hook, *insert hook into next CH2 space and pull up a loop and CH1 around the CH2, put hook back through same CH2 space just worked in, pull up loop and CH1*, repeat from *to* around. On last repeat, CH around the CH2 and Finish off, Join with an Invisible Join in the first CH worked of Contrasting strip.
The project to this point is absolutely beautiful! BUT if you would like to add the flower for a little more detail you can find it HERE!
