Textured Winter Headband Free Pattern

An original, designed by Sandi Marshall

Materials
1 1/2 oz. Simply Soft worsted weight yarn
US Size H crochet hook

Abbreviations
bpdc = back post double crochet
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
fpdc = front post double crochet
sc = single crochet
st = stitch

For diagrams showing how to do front post and back post stitches, see this page.

For a photo explaining working in the back loop only, see this page

Finished Size:
Width: About 3 1/4 inches wide on SC rows - The headband width can vary somewhat and look just fine when worn, so don't overly worry about the gauge of the width on this piece.
Length: Finished piece (before sewing ends together) is about 17 inches long (unstretched).

Gauge:
4 sc ribbing rows = 1 inch, 4 sc stitches = 1 inch
2 dc post stitch rows = 1 inch,

Pattern Instructions:
Note: These instructions are for making the headband with Simply Soft yarn, which works up a bit smaller than regular worsted weight. If using regular worsted weight, refer to those instructions further down this page.

Starting Chain: Chain 16.

Row 1: Sc in the back loop only of 2nd ch from hook. Sc in the back loop only of each chain across. (15 sc)
Rows 2 - 7: Sc in back loop of each sc across. This creates the look of ribbing. Be sure you are ending up with 15 sc at end of each row. (15 sc)

Row 8: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in back loop of each sc across. (15 dc)
Row 9: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), (fpdc in next, bpdc in next) 7 times, dc in last dc. (15 dc)
Row 10: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), (bpdc in next, fpdc in next) 7 times, dc in last dc. (15 dc)
Row Row 11: Repeat row 9.
Rows 12 - 18: Sc in back loop of each st. (15 sc)

Rows 19 - 61: (Repeat rows 8 - 18 consecutively) 4 more times, repeat rows 8 - 10 once. End off. Weave in ends.

When making with regular worsted weight yarn:
Rows 1 - 18: Same as above.
For Snug Fit -
Rows 19 - 58: (Repeat rows 8 - 18 consecutively) 4 more times. End off. Weave in ends.
For Looser Fit -
Rows 19 - 61: (Repeat rows 8 - 18 consecutively) 4 more times, repeat rows 8 - 10 once. End off. Weave in ends.
