Easy Textured Headband











I like making easy headbands with texture. However sometimes the yarn is too stretchy, sometimes it is not stretchy at all, or the person you are making the headband for is not there or it is just a gift.

This is why I normally put buttons or ribbing. This way you know the headband will fit so you can make some of them for gifts :)

The headband pattern I'm posting is simple, yet has nice texture and 2 big buttons. I also used chunky yarn, so the whole headband is worked up very fast.

The yarn used is Eskimo from Garn Studio with hook size 9mm (US M).

YarnEskimo from Garn Studio 

Hook size: 9 mm/M (hook size conversion chart)
Stitches used: sc, dc
Finished size: Adult
Special stitch - the special combination of stitches that makes this amazing texture is very simple - one sc, followed by two dc. 
Gauge: The gauge is not so important here as you can always add more rows or more chains (if you want to make it wider). In my case 4 special st are 10.5cm/4 in wide.

Finished item is around 10.5cm/4in wide, 53cm/20.5in long


Pattern


Start with foundation chain ot sc - chain 13 st (or any row of a multiple of 3 chains + 1).
If you don't know how to do foundation chain you can check this tutorial here.
Or simply chain 12 + 2, sc in second ch from hook till the end


Row 1 - 5:
Ch1, sc in the same stitch, 1 sc in every st till the end, turn (13st)
This is the button part and it should be 3-4cm (1.5in) wide

Row 6:
Ch 2, 2 dc in same st, *skip 2, in next stitch make sc and 2 dc*
Repeat from * to the end of row ending with 1 sc in the last st. Turn.

Repeat Row 6 till desired lenght is reached (you will add 3-4 cm/1.5in more with the button hole part).
I made it around 50cm/20 in long.

Button hole part:
Row 1- 3: ch1, sc in the same st and in every st till the end (13 sc)
Row 4: ch1, sc in the same st, sc in next st, ch 2, skip 2sc, sc in next 5 st, ch2, 1 sc in last two st
Row 5: ch1, sc in the same st, sc in next st, 2 sc in ch2 sp, sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in ch2 sp, sc in last two st
Row 6: ch1, sc in the same st and in every st till the end (13 sc)

Sew up 2 buttons with suitable size, enjoy!

You can wear it with buttons up, or hide them behind the hair :)

You can make a matching scarf too - just follow the same pattern.
