Spring Fling Headband

Spring is here! And the warm weather mixed with mild humidity means its headband time! The Spring Fling Headband is great, because you can use it two ways. Tie it in the back for a more traditional headband, or tie it up top for a flirty, "bow" style. And, its one-size-fits-all, so no worrying about how big or small your head is!


What you'll need:
Size #3 yarn (you can use a light WW too if you'd like)
Size F hook
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Gauge:
3 Ch-5 spaces (as written in pattern) = 4 in. Height isn't important.

Stitches used:
Chain (ch)
Single Crochet (sc)
Slip Stitch (slst)

Decrease (dec)

Pattern:
Ch 110 (for child size), 125 (for adult size)

R1: In 5th ch from hook, (sc, ch 3, sl st), **ch 5, sk 4 st, (sc, ch 3, sl st) in next st** rpt across until you have 5 st left. Ch 5, sc in last st.

R2: ch 3, **(sc, ch 3, sl st) in 3rd ch, of ch 5, ch 5** rpt across until last ch 5 space, (sc, ch 3, sl st) in 3rd ch of ch 5, ch 3, sc in last st.

R3: Ch 1, sc in same st, ch 5, sk ch 3, **(sc, ch 3, sl st) in 3rd ch, of ch 5, ch 5** rpt across until last ch 3 space, ch 5, sc in last st (sk last ch 3).

R4- 7: rpt R2-3 alternating

R8: ch 1, place 4 sc in each ch sp, sc in ch 3 sp, across. Do not turn.

Turn work 90 degrees so you are now working on the side, (dec, sc) across, turn work again so you are working across the bottom, sc across, turn work so you are working on other side, (dec, sc) across. F/O and weave in ends.

Now make it in a million different colors! :) Hope you enjoy!
