Today’s post is
a pattern by guest designer Cheri from Ohio.
Small amount of
Red Heart Super Saver (4) yarn in your choice of color(s)
US size I (5.5
mm) crochet hook
Post Double Crochet (fpdc): yo (yarn over) your hook; starting from the front, place hook
from front to back to front (as per arrow in example) around the post of
st (stitch) in row below; complete as a dc (double crochet).

This is pretty
"stretchy". If you want a smaller headband, decrease original chain
loop in multiples of 2 stitches.
If you want a
bigger headband, add chains in multiple of 2 stitches.
Total number of
rounds also depends on how wide you want your headband. You can make it one solid
color, or stripes. 7 or 8 rounds.
Ch 70 Making
sure you do NOT twist the chain, join with a ss to form a loop.
ROUND 1: Ch 3 (Do NOT 'turn' work in rounds) dc
in next ch and in each ch around. Ss in top of ch 3 to join. (69 dc)
ROUND 2: Ch 3 fpdc around first dc, *bpdc around
next dc, fpdc around next dc. Work from
* around. Ss in top of ch 3 to join.
(If you are
making this in the 7 round color combination, change to color B on last fpdc: yo,
insert hook front to back to front around post, yo, draw up a loop, 3 loops on
hook, yo, pull through 2 loops, change to color B, yo through last 2 loops)
Repeat Round 2,
changing colors when completing the number of rounds for your pattern.
After last round and last ss, cut yarn, pull tight and weave in the ends.
