Hollis Headband



Hi friends! Today I have another free pattern to share with you! Let's call it a New Year's gift and pretend that I had no intention of having this ready for Christmas (wink). This is Hollis Headband, a simple ribbed headband in crochet. Color-changing worsted weight yarn, and the right stitch pattern make this both warm and so trendy!

This is pretty much a one-size-fits-most accessory. The headband is about 16 1/2 x 3 1/2 in. or 42 x 9 cm. But it stretches to fit even my big 'ol 22 in. melon. However, I have included suggestions in the notes to make a different size.



As with all my patterns, please don't make copies to share with other stitchers, just direct them to my blog or pattern store so they can get their own. Thank you!

Notes:
            -  Your headband will look best if you work Rnd 1 sts into the bottom ridge of the chains, rather than the usual top loops.
         -  Do not turn between rnds.
         -  Need it smaller? Start with a smaller (odd) number of chains. Need it larger? Start with a larger (odd) number of chains. Need it wider? Work another rnd or two. Need it narrower? Work a rnd or two fewer.

Headband:
Ch 55, without twisting chain, join to first ch with sl st to join.

Rnd 1: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc in each ch, join to first st with sl st – 55 sts.
Rnds 2-9: Ch 2, Fpdc in first st, *Bpdc in next st, Fpdc in next st, repeat from * around, join to first st with sl st.
