Headbands never go out of style. Wide and then thin and then back again. This thin headband has a cluster-stitch repeat that has strength and beauty. A sewn-in elastic closure protects your hair from being caught in ties or tangled in buttons.

Yarn: Pattern recommends #5 thread. It’s strong and durable, keeps its shape well even after much use, has a lovely sheen, and shows stitches with crisp definition. Or use your favorite fingering weight yarn.

Materials: 1.65mm hook, scissors, hair elastic/pony-tail holder, sharp needle for sewing on elastic.

This pattern uses US terminology. Written and charted. A photo-tutorial shows how to sew in the elastic for a perfect finish.
