Colorwork doesn’t get any easier (or more addictive) than this! Both strands are carried throughout so there are only the beginning and ending tails to weave in for this quick, gift-able headband. The end result is a headband that looks more knit than crochet … with just the right amount of stretch to stay comfortably in place.

Skill Level: Easy

Finished Size: 3.25” wide x 18” circ.

Yarn: 30 yds (MC); 20 yds (CC) bulky wool

Gauge: 11 st x 12 rows = 4” in pattern

Hook: K (6.5 mm) or size for gauge

Easily adjusted for size by working more rows, or adding stitches (in twos) to the starting chain.

The edging and seam are “intregral” … only four ends to weave at the end!
