Heart Headband with Bow



My daughter really liked this headband on People Webs so she asked me to make her one.  She loves hearts and pink, so I decided to personalize it for her.  It's a Christmas present, so ssshhhhh.


Materials
  • Red Heart Soft Yarn, 40 yards Red and Pink
  • H hook
Abbreviations

ch(s)--chain(s)  sc(s)--single crochet(s)

Band

With Pink Yarn Ch 72
Row 1:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (71 scs). Turn.


If you do your foundation row in the back bump of the ch

When making a long foundation ch I put a stitch marker in every 10 to 20 chs to help me keep track

 You will get a nice edge on the bottom of your work


Rows 2 and 3:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in each st across (71 scs). Turn.

Row 4: Ch 1, sc in first two sts, start next sc, add Red Yarn, start red sc, *carry over pink yarn, do 6 full scs, start next pink sc, carry over red yarn, start red sc, *8 times, carry over pink yarn and sc to end of row. (71 sts). Turn. (You will be CARRYING the red and pink yarns from row 4 to row 8.)









Continue carrying the yarns on this side of the head band.

Row 5: Ch 1, sc in first st, start next sc, carry over red yarn, sc 2 full red scs, start next red sc, *carry over pink yarn, do 4 full pink scs, start next pink sc, carry over red yarn, do 2 full scs, start next red sc* 8 times, sc in pink to end of row. (71 scs). Turn.
Yarn is carried on the wrong side of the band, this is the right side.

Here is a chart showing how to do the pattern, each square is one sc. The pattern repeats every 9 sts.  Sorry I had to split the chart, but it was too small to see otherwise.
