Hello, Crochet Peeps!!
Do you get migraines? I do too!! Ugh, they are the worst! 🤕 And it's funny the strange things that can trigger them. Two of my notorious triggers are having my hair up or wearing a headband that's too tight.

And I HAVE to wear a headband because silly me thought it would be a great idea to have bangs cut in my hair 🤦♀️! Now, I'm not judging anyone who has bangs! I think they're adorable! And I loved them for about a day because I honestly think they made me look younger. Come to find out, though, I can't stand my hair in my face. So until my bangs grow out, a headband it is!
The Problem with Some Headbands
Do you have these issues too? Please tell me I'm not alone! When a headband is the same width all the way around, it causes a bump in your hair on the back of your head! I'm always reaching around, feeling the bump, and tugging the back of the headband down. And let's not forget the headaches! Yes, I know I'm kind of a delicate mess..
There's this ONE headband I own, and I don't remember where I bought it from. It has a pretty braided design on the top, but the bottom is made with two stretchy hair ties. It's the most comfortable headband ever, because it never squeezes my head! But I only have one..that's where the design for this Summer Headband came from, and I had to share it with you! It's so fun to be able to make your own hair accessories! I'm going to show you how easy it is too!

The yarn portion of the headband is 11" L x 1 1/4" W, then the hair ties add another 5" to the length
17 HDC's in 4", 7 HDC rows in 4"
How to Make the Sunny Summer Headband
Start by joining the two hair ties together using a slip knot. Attach your yarn onto one of the hair ties by working a CH ST around the hair tie
Row 1: CH 49, including the CH you worked around the hair tie; work the 50th CH around the other hair tie, CH 1 more, and work 1 SC into the 2nd CH from the hook and into each CH across, working your last SC through the ST AND the hair tie (50 SC's), CH 1 and turn
Row 2: HDC into the 1st ST, *SK the next ST, HDC into the next ST, now go back and HDC into the ST you skipped*, repeat from * to * across until the last 3 ST of the row remain; SK a ST, HDC into the next ST, go back and HDC into the skipped ST, then HDC into the last ST of the row AND around the hair tie, CH 1 and turn
NOTE: Row 2 can be repeated until your headband is the desired width, or worked just once for a narrow headband!
Row 3: Repeat Row 2 exactly, with the last HDC worked into the last ST AND around the hair tie, CH 1 and turn
Row 4: SC into each ST across, working the last SC into the ST AND around the hair tie. Tie off your yarn and weave in the ends!
Ta daaaa!! Your beautiful headband!
