I have another new pattern for you! I know I seem to be on a roll but I have actually been sitting on all these new patterns since we moved to TN. I designed and wrote up about 10 different patterns while we were packing, driving and unpacking. I am just now writing them up and listing them. This new pattern is called the Xfinity Headband. It is similar to my Fine Twisted Headband Crochet Pattern. This pattern uses Worsted weight yarn which makes a thicker and warmer headband.
Here is a picture of my daughter wearing one. They are very comfy!
Child: 16” around and 2.5” wide
Adult: 20” around and 3.5” wide
Instructions are included to make the headband thinner or wider.
Yarn: Worsted (4) yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver and Caron Simply Soft for the headbands pictured.
Hook size: H (5.00mm) – or hook needed to obtain gauge
Notions: stitch markers, yarn needle & scissors.
Gauge: 10 hdc and 7 rows = 4” square
Sl st Slip stitch
Sc Single crochet
Hdc Half double crochet
This headband is worked in the round. There is no joining or turning.
Ch 50 loosely. Continue with instructions below.
Ch 40 loosely. Continue with instructions below.
Making sure not to twist the chain join to the 1st st to make a circle.
Ch 1, sc in next 3 sts, hdc in remaining sts. DO NOT JOIN. Making sure that the ch is straight, turn the beginning of the chain over so that you will continue working on the backside of the sts. Hdc into the bottom of the first ch and continue hdc around.
You will eventually get to the point where you are crocheting onto the top of the sts again. Continue working until the headband is as wide as you want.
For the child’s headband pictured I crocheted 3 rounds which made it 2.5” wide. For the adult headband pictured I crocheted 5 rounds which made it 3.5” around.
To finish: sc in the next 3 sts, fasten off and sew in all loose ends.
I hope you enjoy my newest pattern and thanks for stopping by!
