What’s your go to stitch?
Mine has been the Linen stitch. It’s rhythmically simple and makes a super stretchy, flat fabric. I made this baby headband using this stitch and am adding the quick pattern below to say thanks for being awesome.
5mm hook (H)
blunt large eyed needle
SC = Single crochet
Ch = Chain
Row 1: SC into 2nd ch from hook. *Ch 1, skip next stitch, SC* repeat * to * to end of row, Ch 1 and turn.
Row 2: *SC into first/next chain space, Ch 1, skip next stitch*, repeat * to * to end of row, Ch 1 and turn.
Repeat Row 2 until headband measures desired length. Remember to calculate in some negative ease to make sure it fits snugly. For example, if the head circumference is 16”, make the headband about 1” to 1.5” shorter (14”-14.5”).
Headband shown was made 14” in length to fit a baby, between 15”-15.5” in circumference.
To make a flat headband sew each short end together and weave in ends. BOOM, done.
To make a twisted headband, fold each short end in half to where you have two Vs and insert one half of one V into the other so they are folded over each other, then sew folded ends together. Cut yarn and weave in ends. BOOM, done.
Note: I like to hold the ends in place while folded and flip headband inside out to make sure the twist looks right before sewing the ends together. If the headband looks to have a “double twist”, switch the way the folded ends were placed together until it looks right when held together and flipped inside out.
