I found a huge pack of garishly colored cheapy yarn (sometimes my favorite kind of yarn) at a thrift store, and I thought all the odd amounts and colors would be nice for making headbands. And I'm thinking this one is the first of many.





It's such a simple project, and there's plenty of room for embellishments. I'll post the pattern if anyone's interested.

ETA: Pattern, yay!  Cheesy
Headband Pattern

Yarn: worsted yarn, in two different colors
Hook: Size G

Ch 2
Row 1: sc 2 in second ch from hook, ch1, turn (2 sc)
Row 2:  sc 2 in each ch, ch 1, turn (4 sc)
Row 3: sc across, ch 1, turn (4 sc)
Rows 4-5: sc 2 in first ch, sc to last ch, sc 2 in last ch, ch 1, turn (8 sc)
Row 6: sc across, ch 1, turn

Repeat row 6 until headband measures approximately 17" from tip, or whatever length you are comfortable with. Keep in mind that the decrease rows will add about 1" after this point.

Decreasing Rows:
Row 1: dec across first 2 sc, sc to last 2 ch, dec (6 sc)
Row 2: sc across (6 sc)
Rows 3-5: Repeat row 1 (1 sc)
 Fasten off.

Border:
Look on the sides of your headband. See the gaps between the rows of sc? Crochet your contrasting color into these.

In the first one, sl st and ch 1, then sc 2. Sc 2 into each space around headband. For the very tips, sc 3. Sl st into the first space you started, then fasten off.

Ties:
Cut three strands of yarn, each about 54" long. I chose 2 in the main color, and 1 in the contrasting color. Fold them in half and pull loop through the tip of the headband with your crochet hook. Pull yarn through the loop and tighten.



Braid the yarn, then make a knot when the tie is long enough. I stopped when mine was about 12" long.

And that's it! If I left anything out or you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I would totally love a pattern for this!  I've got a LOT of yarn that I found when I worked at a self-storage place.  You'd be surprised at the wierdness people leave behind, such as my computer desk, bedside table and the food processor in my kitchen Wink
This is really cute!!

Haha! That's awesome! Way to be thrifty.

You're so sweet, thank you! And I know what you mean about thrift store yarn. It's like you see it in the store just staring at you, whispering all sorts of crafty promises to you, and then you take it home and you realize you just made your stash even bigger, and...why? Haha. But I'm trying really hard to use mine now.

Ooh very cool looking headband. And I agree with amybarnett, your bangs are adorable.
Thanks so much for the pattern! These would make great gifts. I'm still a crochet newbie, so the pictures look helpful  Cheesy

I love the way they look! I wear headbands all the time, I need to learn crochet so I can make some.
 When I saw the thumbnail pic I thought it would be a Juno inspired headband, hehe (Michael Cera's character wears something like it).
The red-orange and blue combo in the pattern pic is even better. And I agree, you wear those bangs so well!

Thanks for the lovely compliments, guys! You're all so nice. I'm totally feeling the craftster love. Cheesy

JennaDickes: You know, you're right. Looks very Juno to me now. And I also like the second one better. I'll probably be wearing that one a lot. Sometimes I like simple projects just so I can have fun making some of my favorite color combos.
