Crochet A Trunk-Full O' Fun!

Beth's Eyelet Summer Headband.

Beth's Eyelet Summer Headband

I hate having my hair in my eyes, and Texas summers are hot. So I decided to make this headband to wear in the summer. Button placement makes it easy to adjust the fit.

Materials: #4 Medium Worsted weight cotton or cotton blend, an G/6 (4.0 - 4.5 mm) crochet hook, and 2 ¾ inch flat buttons.

From top to bottom, samples were made with Berroco® Captiva Medium weight mixed fiber yarn in color 5558 Orchid, Bernat® Handicrafter cotton in Caramel, and Peaches & Creme® cotton in Turquoise.

 

Gauge: 9 sc = 2 inches, 9 sc rows = 2 inches.


Notes: (Optional) Use the alternative turning ch on the dc rows instead of the ch-3.

Alternative beginning dc turning ch. Draw up a loop in the first stitch, yo draw through 2, insert hook under left 2 vertical bars in the first drawn up loop. Draw up a loop. Yo and draw through 2. (This should be the same size as the dc stitches.) The bottom headband in the photo used this technique.


Parentheses at the end of rows indicate the number of stitches or stitch pattern in row.


Sc decrease: Draw up a loop in each of the next 2 stitches, (3 loops on hook) yo, draw through all 3 loops.
