Easy Newborn Headband

Please read this before continuing or starting a new project.  Thanks.

I made a crocheted dress, diaper cover, and booties set for a co-worker's baby shower, but I felt it needed something extra. Because she lives in Texas, and the baby is due in the summer, a hat didn't feel appropriate. (My kids were both born in Dallas, one of them in July - and it is HOT then!) So, I improvised this little headband to go along with the set. Feel free to make this cute and super easy accent for any of your baby girl crochet projects!

Please respect my creative license and do not sell or reproduce this pattern. You may make items from this pattern to sell (the only pattern I am allowing for commercial use). Thanks!




Materials:
Worsted weight (baby soft) yarn in choice of color(s) - I used Lion Brand Pound of Love
Size I hook
Sewing needle
Elastic thread
Optional embellishments

Abbreviations (American standard):
ch = chain
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet
sc = single crochet
sk = skip
F/O = fasten off

Instructions:
• Ch 55

Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in ea st across. Ch 1, turn. (53 st)

*Note: if you wish to switch colors for the edging, then F/O the first color here and attach second color at the end of the row. Otherwise, continue with the first color.

Row 2: *4 sc in 1st st, sk 1 st, sl st in next st, sk 1 st, repeat from * across to last st, 4 sc in last st.

Row 3: working on opposite side of ch, sl st in 1st st . *4 sc in next st, sk 1 st, sl st in next st, sk 1 st, repeat from * across (ending with sl st in last st). F/O.

• Sew ends of right sides together. With elastic thread and a sewing needle, weave thread through the entire length of the headband. Cut and tie off ends. Turn headband right side out, and add embellishment if desired.
