Crochet Turband

on October 8, 2013

turbandSo I have a crochet crush on Stephanie fromChain All About Ami. Her patterns are great and easy to follow. She gives great ideas on how to adjust patterns and make them your own.

 

 

Her pattern the knotted headband, is my inspiration for this. She did hers in back and forth rows, I wanted to do mine in a round.

Chain into back of chain row to create the same edging as the top

Here is my version of the pattern.

Using a size H/5.00mm hook, chain 75 stitches.

Row 1: Complete a DC into the back of the 4th stitch from the hook. DC into each stitch until the end. At the end, slst into first stitch. Careful not to twist the work.IMG_00000768

Row 2 – 8: Chain 3. DC around. SLST into first chain. (You can make the head band as thick as you would like. The original blog only had 6 rows.

 

The first and last stitch of the first row need to be joined together.

I then created a ruching by stitching through every other row from top to bottom, and went over five stitches. I then created the band.

Row 1: SC into back of 2nd stitch from hook. SC across.

Row 2-16: Ch1 SC into each stitch.

I then wrapped the band around the ruched area and secured it at the back so that it wouldn’t slide.

 

It was a super quick, easy, cute, warm pattern. I’m stoked to wear mine this winter.
