Here is the headband to match last week’s cowl. It’s easy to adjust to any size and stays on nicely… even on my head. It’s not very warm, but I do love the pretty lace. If you have long hair, this might be all you need to keep cozy in the winter. Or, wear it in the summer to hold your hair back.
I used a worsted weight yarn for this, but because it is so easy to adjust in size, you could use pretty much any yarn and crochet hook.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Yarn: Loops & Threads Impeccable, or any worsted weight yarn.
Crochet Hook: I/9-5.50mm
Gauge: 3″ over 9 sc. Gauge is not that important as you can adjust it to any size in multiples of 2.
Finished Size: Laying flat it measures 8.5″ over sc sts, 9.5″ over the bullion sts and 3.5″ wide.
