Bev's WC Headbands  (c) 2014 Beveryly A. Qualheim
I came up with a very quick and easy headband design in both crochet and knit versions so I could make a bunch to take with me to BYU Women's Conference in May 2014.  These will be given to women, children and teens in crisis in the fall.


CROCHETED HEADBAND
Gauge: 4sts - 1" 4 rows = 1" ---  fits 20"-23" head
Materials:
Size H (5.5 mm) crochet hook, several yards of worsted weight yarn, yarn needle.
Ch 15,
Row 1: Sc in each chain across, ch 1, turn
Row 2: Sc in back loops only of each sc across row.  (14 sts)
Rows 3 - 60: Repeat row 2.  End off cutting a 10" yarn tail.  (about 16" long and 3" wide)  Add more sts and rows to change size
Thread the yarn tail onto a yarn needle, fold headband in half width-wise, and whip stitch the seam shut.
Flip right side out.

THE BOW - brown or contrast color
Ch 15
Row 1: Sc in each chain across, ch 1, turn
Row 2: Sc in back loops only of each sc across row.  (14 sts)
Rows 3 - 8: Repeat row 2.  End off.
Wrap 1 yd of  brown yarn tightly around the middle of the bow.  Tie in back of bow and use those tails to attach bown to headband.  You can also sew each end of the bow to the headband.

Chain 4 and join to form a ring.
Chain 12, join with a slip stitch into the ring (petal). Make 6 more petals.  Join, and end off.  Tie to headband.

Cut 3" piece of dark yarn for antenae.  Fold in half, and place around middle of butterfly. Slip 2 'tips' through the loop middle loop of antenae, (where you folded it), pull tightly, and tie ends in a square knot.  Trim if needed.

These embelishments can be used on the knitted headbands too.
