My new long bangs have been bugging me severely, so I made a couple of headbands, and I think they're pretty cute. Please let me know what you think.



That's my son modeling, isn't his hair pretty? He's refused to cut it since second grade (now in fifth), and I decided to just go with the flow. Even though everyone thinks he's a girl, everywhere we go. Sigh.

Here's the pattern, with modifications to make it narrower, as well.
http://sockmonkeyrescue.org/headband.html

Pattern added by vanillaxlight. See the website above for more pictures, how to make it narrower, and copyright information!

Pattern:

I used 100% wool, worsted weight and a G hook, but any yarn would work just as well.
Measure your head and subtract a few inches for ease, unless your yarn has absolutely no stretch to it. I made mine a little more than 18 inches long, not counting the ties and it fit comfortably on my 22 inch head.

Ch 3 always counts as first dc

Ch 40
2 dc in 4th chain from hook, ch 3, turn.
Inc 1 dc on each end (dc 2 in first and last stitch) and dc in each dc (5 dc), ch 3, turn.
Inc 1 dc on each end and dc in each dc (7 dc), ch 3, turn.
Inc 1 dc on each end and dc in each dc (9 dc), ch 3, turn.
Inc 1 dc on each end and dc in each dc (11 dc), ch 3, turn.
Inc 1 dc on each end and dc in each dc (13 dc), ch 3, turn. Measure the length of this section, not counting the chain tie, for later.

Begin pattern for headband:
Row 1: DC in next dc, ch1, skip 1 stitch, dc in next dc, skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next dc, skip 2, dc in next dc, ch1, skip 1, dc in next 2 stitches, chain 1, turn.
Row 2: (chain 1 does not count as a single crochet, just do it and ignore it.) Sc in each dc and ch 1 space across,  (13 sc) chain 3, turn.

Repeat the last 2 rows until your headband is 3.5 inches less (or however long your increase section at the beginning of your headband turned out) than the desired length, not counting the chain tie. End on row 1 of pattern.

Decrease one stitch at each end (I just skipped a stitch, if you know a tidier way, please feel free), and dc in each dc across. (11 dc) ch 3, turn
Decrease one stitch at each end, and dc in each dc across. (9 dc) ch 3, turn
Decrease one stitch at each end, and dc in each dc across. (7 dc) ch 3, turn
Decrease one stitch at each end, and dc in each dc across. (5 dc) ch 3, turn
Decrease one stitch at each end, and dc in each dc across. (3 dc) ch 1, turn, sc in the ch 3 space, chain 35, fasten off.
You can tie an overhand knot at the end of the chains for extra durability.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Thanks, you guys!

I know every mom thinks her baby is gorgeous, and I swore I'd never make a stink about my child's looks--only tell him he was smart, funny, creative, etc.-- but he's so cute to me I have to say it. He just rolls his eyes.
