ZigZag Headband

If you liked the bracelet pattern then you may also want to make a matching headband. The pattern is pretty much the same, I just added two more rows for the headband and more stitches to fit a regular adult head.

This pattern uses only combination of doubles so it is easy to make even for beginners in crocheting.

*** This pattern is free. You may sell the products you make from my patterns but not the pattern itself. If you sell items from this pattern please link back to this post. Do not copy and repost this pattern or any of the photos and claim them as your own. ***

This pattern uses US crochet terms.

Yarn: The yarn I used is 75% cotton, 25% viscose, but any yarn will do 
Hook size: 3mm (hook size conversion chart), any other hook will also work well, it will just make the headband bigger (if you use bigger hook) or smaller(if you use smaller hook). You will need to adjust the lenght.
Stitches used: ch and dc
Finished size: 1.5in/3.2 cm wide, 21 in/54cm long - can be done longer or smaller to fit any head
Gauge:  4 in/10 cm = 20 st. from pattern
Colors: I used different combination of two colors (color A and color B in the pattern)

Row 1
With color A ch 110 st (or even number st), dc in 4th ch from hook,* skip 1 st, 2dc in next st*, repeat from * to * till end, turn. You may join the end with the start of the chain (make sure it is not twisted) and work in rounds. I joined the ends of the headband with 2 buttons so it is easily adjustable.

Row 2:

Change to color B - ch 3, dc between the two dc (not in the loops but in the space between the two dc from the previous row, see the picture below), *skip 1st, work 2dc between the next two dc (in the dc space)*, repeat from * to * till the end, turn

Row 3:

Change to color A and repeat row 2.

Row 4:
Back to color B and repeat row 2.

Row 5:
Switch to color A and repeat row 2.

Adding a button:
Before cutting the yarn go around the short edge with a row of sc (I made 10 sc - 2 sc in each dc), cut the yarn. Then attach the yarn at the oposite edge of the headband, make a row of sc, turn. I made two ch 6 as buttons holes.

If you like this headband then may also like those bracelets as well.
