Crochet Pattern: Asterisk HeadbandBy Claire Ortega-Reyes – 12 Comments
|Headbands can fix any number of bad hair days. They also add that extra “oomph” to the everyday look.
This lacy yet sturdy headband is made in one go: after crocheting the main body back and forth in rows, the straps and edging are made in the same round. Make this using organic yarn for a spring or summer accessory, or make it double as a warmer by using wool or acrylic.
Finished Size: 2.5″ wide x 12″ long, excluding straps
Light or DK-weight yarn
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
Gauge: 8 dc stitches x 4 dc rows = 2″
