Item details

This listing is for a PDF Crochet PATTERN only, not a finished headband. English language and US crochet terms only.

This pattern was designed to be extremely stretchy and the included 2 sizes, Small (18 - 21" head circumference) and Large (21.5 - 23"+ head circumference) can fit everyone from a toddler to an adult.

Make in a solid color to emphasize the sculptured braid or use 2 or 3 colors for a sporty look.

This comprehensive photo tutorial pattern (20 pages, 150+ photos, 16.21MB) has close up in-process photos of every step. You'll also receive a supplement for chainless foundation rows (5 pages, 43 photos, 4.14MB). There is not a text-only version of this pattern.

You will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader or PDF-XChange to view or print the files. Printed paper copies sent by USPS mail are not available.

worsted, 1x 100g skein (a lighter worsted, not an aran). Size small uses about 100 yards, large uses about 120 yards.
5.0mm hook
Yarn needle

You need the following skills:
slip stitch
single crochet
half double crochet
double crochet
half triple crochet
triple crochet
identifying specific loops
controlling tension
accuracy & attention to detail

It's helpful if you are familiar with chainless foundation rows and i-cord but not necessary, full instructions are included.

Also included in this pattern is a quicker version (pink, cream & gray in the photos) which is easier, lighter weight and ideal for using alternating colors.

Although this pattern uses many stitches and techniques, everything is covered in great detail and is suitable for an intermediate crocheter. An adventurous advanced beginner who has mastered the required skills may be able to do it but could find it challenging. More important than a specific experience level is patience and the ability to follow instructions.
