Simply Charming Headband

Not having enough time for all the gifts you want to make? 

Try this pattern - headbands are faster to make than hats, can be made in different sizes and width, different yarn type - to either keep warm or simply to keep the hair away. Choose different colors or simply add flower or other embelishment to make them look exceptional.

This pattern uses US crochet terms.

YarnDK (11 wpi) , I used Drops Cotton Merino
Hook size: 4 mm/ G (hook size conversion chart)
Stitches used: ss, sc, dc, ch
Finished size:  Lenght 20.5in/52 cm, width 4in/10 cm. Check the notes in the pattern how to decrease/increase the starting chain to make for kids

ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
ch - chain
* - * Repeat the pattern between the * as described

- The black and the colored part are done separately, you will need stitch marker or anything to stop unraveling one part while you are working on the other 
- Cluster is 3 dc in the same st, ch2 in the start of the colored row counts as dc


Adult size
Round 1: With black ch 90 (or any multiple of 3), join with ss in the first chain. Be careful to not twist the chain. Ch 1, sc in same st, sc around end with ss in first ch.

If you are having problems with the starting chain you may do this trick:
- Ch 91, do not join but sc in second hook from st, sc till the end, now join with ss in the opposite sc. It is easier to not twist the starting chain but you will have to sew a little at the end in the starting chain.
- You may start with sc foundation chain

Round 2:
Ch 4, dc in same st. Skip 2st, * [dc, ch, dc] in the same st, skip 2 st*. Repeat * - * around, end with ss in the top of the starting chain. Put a marker in the last worked st and remove the hook. 

Round 3: [Coloured round] Join new colour (red/yellow/green or whatever you want) in the ch space between the last two dc from the previous round. Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in the same st, * work 3dc (cluster) in the next chain space*, repeat * - * till the end. SS in the top of the ch 3 from the start of the round. Put the stitch marker here and remove the hook. Continue the next row with black yarn.  Round 4: [Black round]: With the hook draw the black loop (from the last worked black stitch where the marker was) so it is between two clusters of 3 dc from the coloured row and ch 4, dc in the same st. Skip the next coloured cluster from the previous row, * [dc, ch, dc] between the clusters of 3 dc from the previous row, skip the next cluster *. Repeat * - * till the end of the round, end with ss in the starting chain. Work only in the black stitches from the previous black round. Get the marker from the last worked stitch of the coloured row and put it here. Continue next row with the coloured yarn.

Round 5: [Coloured round]: With the hook draw the colored loop from the last worked coloured round so it is in the space between 2 dc of the black round. Insert the hook in the colored yarn and continue this row with coloured yarn. Ch 3, 2 dc in the same space. *Skip to the next chain space and work 3 dc*, repeat * - * till the end of the round, ss in the top of the ch 3 from the start of the row. Put the stitch marker here and continue working with black.

Round 6, 8, 10, 12, 14: Repeat round 4

Round 7, 9, 11, 13: Repeat round 5

If you need to increase the widtth continue with few more repeats of round 4 and 5.

Round 15: Continue with black. Ch 1, sc in the same st, now work 1 sc in each st, 2 sc in the ch space between the dc. You should end up with  the same number of stitches like in the starting chain. 

Round 16: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc around. End with ss in starting chain.
