How to Crochet a Headband Tutorial
I love how this crochet headband turned out with the crossed double crochet stitch. I created this crossed double crochet headband with Impeccable medium worsted yarn with a h hook. This pretty stitch headband is created with a ponytail opening in the back or you can close it with slip stitches. I uploaded a video if you need more help.
1 Skein of Impeccable Medium Worsted Blue yarn
sl st=slip stitch
Row 1: Chain 19 (Multiples of 2 + 1) so you can make this wider or less wide with your chain count, dc in the 3rd chain from the hook and each chain across. Turn
Row 2: Chain 3, dc in the next stitch, dc in the beginning stitch with ch 3, (that creates the cross dc), *skip next stitch, dc in the next, dc in the skipped stitch, (that creates the cross dc), *Repeat to across, dc in the last stitch. Turn
Rows 3-32: Repeat Row 2 for 31 rows or until it fits snuggly around your head.
Row 33: Chain 3, dc in each stitch across
Take the two ends together, slip stitch in the next 5, then only slip stitch on one side in the next 8 stitches to keep the it open, then take the two ends together and slip stitch to the end. If you don't want the opening for the ponytail you can slip stitch it closed.
