Re-Stitched in April 2016
Original date published December 2013
I love the look of crocheted headbands and wearing them. I also love the ribbed look on headbands. So I designed this narrow headband to wear whenever. It looks great with your hair down or up. The colors in the Stripie Headband are so versatile…it makes me think of Fall. I have reworked this headband using Red Heart Super Saver, a I hook, and basic crochet stitches. The basic black with hints of neon colors makes it a go to, anytime headband. Throw it in your bag for the beach, shopping, or even riding in a convertible to keep your hair out of your face. The original had a button closure and this one I just sew first and last rows together.
Yarn: Medium Weight-4 (I used Vanna’s Choice)
For the re-stitched Red Heart Super Saver #4 Medium, 5 oz/141 g/236 yds/215 m, Neon Fleck #E300-4315, used approximately 50 to 75 yds for headband
Hook: Brittany I (5.5 mm)
Button 1inch (if you are making the one with the button)
Laying flat 3 inches wide, 8 inches long
