Skill Level: Easy

Size: 13” / [33 cm] wide x 6.5” / [16.5 cm] high

Gauge: 5 sts = 2” [5 cm] in dc

Materials

Yarn: Bernat Softee Baby Chunky (100% Acrylic; 155 yards [142 meters]/140 grams):

97005My Sunshine Varg (1 ball)

Hook: US size K/10 (6.5 mm)

Notions: Tapestry needle

Pattern Notes

All ch counts as a st in pattern.

Ch 2 at the start of a rnd counts as tr.

Ch 1 at the start of a rnd does not count as a st.

Pattern

Ch 24.

Row 1: Working in BL, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each st across to end, turn. (23 sts)

Row 2: Ch 2, dc in next 7 sts, ch 7, sk next 7 sts, dc in last 8 sts, turn.

Rows 4-51: Rep Rows 2-3 for patt.

Row 52: Rep Row 2. Do not fasten off.

Making Up

You should have created a long strip of fabric with a section that looks like a ladder.

When you’re ready to create the Jacobs Ladder stitch, begin at the bottom row.

  1. Twist the chain over itself so that the right side crosses over the left and closes the first stitch.
  2. Next pull up the loop from Row 2 and pull it through the loop creating the “chained” stitch in your ladder.
  3. Continue moving up, row by row, until you have pulled each chain through the ladder.
  4. Ch 1, work sc in next 7 sts, sl st in top of ch of ladder to secure, sc in rem 8 sts.
  5. Fasten off, but leave a long yarn tail for the seam.
Finishing

Line up both ends of the cowl and, with RS facing, whipstitch together.

Weave in any rem ends.

I Like Crochet Magazine by Lauren Tran - 2d ago

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: 18.75” finished length before seaming, 9.25” finished length after seaming, 4.25” finished width, to fit average adult woman’s head,

Gauge: 15 sts = 4” [10cm] in Dc

Materials

Yarn: Loops & Threads Joy DK (100% Acrylic; 273 yards [250 meters]/100 grams): Latte (1 ball)

Hook: US size G/6 (4.25mm)

Notions: Tapestry needle, scissors

Special Stitches

Lace Shell Stitch: Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in st indicated.

For a visual tutorial, see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RshDvaZJNkU

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked widthwise, until you reach the desired length.

This pattern creates a headband to fit the average adult woman’s head: 9” laid flat when finished or 18” length with a 2-3” stretch (20-21” circumference at its max).

The headband’s length can be adjusted, depending on how many repeats of the row are worked. Easily adjust for larger head sizes by simply continue working for additional rows.

Pattern Headband

Row 1 (Foundation Row)

Ch 21, sc in 2nd st from hook and each ch across row. Turn.

Row 2 (Set-up Row): Ch 3, sk first 3 sts of the work (not from the 3 just chained), in 4th st work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in the same st, *sk next 5 sts, work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in next st**; rep from * to ** once more to las 4 sts, sk 3 sts, dc in last st. Turn.

Row 3 (Repeat Row): Ch 3, *in next ch-2 sp of Lace Shell Stitch work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc); rep from * in each ch-2 sp across row, ending with dc in top of turning ch (beg ch-3).
Rep Row 3 until work meas 18” or desired length, continuing until you can wrap it around the head without it being too loose. You want this to be snug so it doesn’t slip off the head.

Last Row: Ch 3, sk 3 sts, dc in next st, 2 hdc in next ch-2 sp, dc in next dc, sk next st, *sk next 2 sts, dc in next dc, 2 hdc in next ch-2 sp, dc in next dc, sk next st, dc in next dc**, rep from * to ** once more, dc in top of turning ch (beg ch-3). (15 sts)

Seaming

Line up the edges of the piece. When seaming, I prefer to place the side with the edge that your crochet hook is connected to on the bottom.

Seam the edges together using slip stitches. I like to insert my crochet hook through multiple loops on each side for extra security.

Note: Don’t worry about perfectly lining up the stitches. Instead, focus on keeping the piece flat while seaming.

Cut yarn, leaving about a 2” tail.

Weave in all ends going up the seam.

Turn inside out with exposed seam on the inside.

Cinched Piece

Row 1: Ch 9, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in ch across row. Turn.
Rows 2-9: Ch 1, hdc in each st across row. Turn.

Work until piece meas 2.5”. Don’t cut yarn. Leave attached to hook.

Finishing Adding Cinched Piece

Make sure your headband is flat with the seam perfectly in the middle of the piece. Cinch the headband so that the piece is folded in the shape of a ‘M’.

Place your cinched piece directly underneath the seam and with the crochet hook attached at the bottom righthand corner of the rectangle.

Pull the edges of the Cinched Piece together so that they line up perfectly. When seaming, I insert my crochet hook through both loops of the bottom edge and two loops of the top edge. Seam together using slip stitches – for your first stitch, insert your crochet hook through to the finished headband so that your hook goes through the first edge, middle crocheted piece, and last edge as well.

Continue seaming until you reach the middle. Work one of your slip stitches through to the middle piece. Continue seaming until end. At the last stitch, slip stitch through to the piece again so that it stays securely in that position and the seam won’t move to the front.

Cut tail and pull through.

Weave in tail end.

Turn headband inside out.
