Bow Band

First of all: Happy New Years everyone!

To start off 2013 right, I decided to post an extremely quick and easy pattern to warm up those ears of yours in the cold winter months. I spotted this headband on pinterest and decided to give it a try as my ears are especially sensitive to the cold. The pattern was easy to follow, but when I was finished an tried it on, I wasn’t satisfied with the way it looked, as if it were missing something. That is when I stumbled upon this headband on pinterest (Ok – so I’m a pinterest junkie. What of it?). I decided to try adding a bow to the headband to jazz it up a bit.

Here is how it turned out:

Bow Band

Bow Band Pattern:

Hook size: J

Yarn weight: Light worsted – worsted weight (France size 4)

Yarn amount:  <50 g (2 oz)

Band:

Chain 50 (or more/less depending on the size of your head)

Round 1: Dc in 3rd chain from the end and all others.

Round 2-4: Chain 2 and then dc in all dcs

Tie off and weave in ends.

Fold the band in half and sew the ends together (You can either with a needle or do a slip stitch across the edge with your crochet hook.)

Knot:

Chain 11

Round 1: Dc in 3rd chain from the end and all others.

Round 2-8: Chain 2 and then dc in all dcs.

Tie off and weave in ends.

Fold the knot around the band and sew the ends of the knot together (You can either with a needle or do a slip stitch across the edge with your crochet hook.)

Bow:

Chain 25

R1: Dc in 3rd from hook and all others.

R2 – 4: Chain 2 and then dc in all dcs.

Tie off and weave in ends.

Slip the bow between the band and the Knot. Fold each end of the bow backwards until it reaches the knot. Using a needle with a large head, secure the ends of the bow to the band so that they stay in place. (This makes it so the bow stays upright instead of flopping over.)

If the pattern isn’t clear, let me know! I had a hard time explaining the bow part.

Enjoy!
