Here is a headband or cowl to match the Easy Breezy Beanie that I published a few weeks ago. The headband is perfect for the summer as it does the job of keeping the hair back, but won’t contribute to too much heat.
Hope you enjoy :)
Skill Level: Beginner
Yarn: Red Heart Soft Touch
Crochet Hook: H/8-5.00mm
Gauge: 2.75″ across 8 chs and 2 hdc.
Finished Size: When laying flat it measures 9″ across and 2.75″ wide. However, it can be crocheted to any length and width.
Ch/Chs = Chain/Chains
FO = Fasten Off
Hdc = Half Double Crochet
Rep = Repeat
Sk = Skip
Sl St = Slip Stitch
Sp/Sps = Space/Spaces
St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches
Note: When you work 2 hdc’s into the same stitch or space, think of these as a set, or a mini shell. Then when you crochet your next round and the pattern says “2 hdc in sp before next hdc”, work these in between the previous set of hdc’s. Below are two images that might help.
Ch 70 (or any multiple of 10); join with sl st in first ch being careful not to twist chs.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 2 hdc in same ch as join, *ch 8, sk next 9 chs**, 2 hdc in next ch; rep from * around ending last rep at **; join with sl st in first hdc. (14 hdc and 7 ch-8 loops)
Rnds 2-8: Sl st into sp before next hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in same sp, ch 8, *2 hdc in sp between next 2 hdc, ch 8; rep from * around; join with sl st in first hdc. FO at last rnd.
Thank you so much to my testers for testing this:
