Evalyns Headband

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.

Placing right side together, working in both the Base Chain and the last rows of DC, SLST together to sew the circle togetherEvalyns Headband - KatiDCreationsTurn right side out, CH1, (SC, Picot, SC) in side of DC around. Finish off

3.5mm
Work using 2 strands of thread together!

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.
