This is a quick headband if you will. I have made several sizes, but the larger ones are my favorite for holding back the hair. I made them light and airy for summer time. Make smaller ones for just a nice little head band or larger ones that hold the hair back a bit more. Go even a little longer and it will hold the hair right up off your neck for a large pony tail. Adding embellishments for an extra little something, like flowers, buttons, ribbons...
I used a K hook and worsted weight yarn.
The beginning uses a bit of measurement. Measure the size of intended head and chain an even number of chains to make the length. join with a sl st to form a circle being careful not to twist.
Rnd 1) ch4 (counts as first dc and ch1)* skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch1, repeat from * around, sl st to 3rd ch of first ch4
Rnd 2) sl st to first ch1 space, ch4,* dc in next ch1 space, ch1, repeat from * around.
Repeat Rnd 2 for desired length. Optional, when at desired lenght ch1, sc in each st around. This is what I have done with the lt. purple one.
The flower I used is just one I found on the net. Lion Brand has some and a few other sites.
