Here is a very simple cross stitch headband to keep your hair back. It is worked in three simple rounds to keep it nice and narrow. Plus, it works up quick and easy.
The crochet headband is worked with the triple crochet cross stitch and a double crochet in between the cross stitch to give it a nice open lace.
