Today we have American Crochet back with another pattern for us to enjoy. This one is for a textured headband that you’ll enjoy wearing to keep your hair in place. And it’s worked in rounds, so you could easily continue in pattern rounds for a cozy winter ear warmer if you like.
So here is Mistie, with the pattern:
