Part 1-Headband:

Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch to end.
Row 2: ch 2, dc in each st and in the top of ch 2.
Row 3-36: repeat Row 2 until the headband measures your head when wrapped around (about 33 more rows).

-Match ends and sl st both ends together with working yarn. Tie off.

Part 2-Bow:
-Chain 30 or long enough to cover one full side of the headband.
Row 1: hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch to end.
Row 2-8: repeat Row 1 until the piece resembles a rectangle and measures one side of the headband and reaches from left to right and top to bottom. Tie off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Part 3- Assembly:

-Sew the rectangle bow (Part 2) on top of one side of the headband (Part 1). Sew the short sides only using the tails or new pieces of yarn.

-Run a new piece of yarn through the center of the bow piece (Part 2) causing it to cinch and bunch together. Send both ends down through the headband. Tie knots on the back-side and sew ends in.

-Attach 5 pearl beads with a needle and matching thread on top of the bow where you just bunched it together (I also have embellished the headband with a rhinestone button).

  2. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pattern! I love the pearls you've added, makes it very classy...and different from the flower or bow accent I've been seeing. Even though I've only been crocheting for 6 months, it's looks straight-forward enough for me to tackle. I can't wait to try making it!

  3. Hi, Thanks for a lovely pattern, is the bow attached anywhere else apart from middle to the headband?
