This textured headband is made of single crochets and post stitches and can be worked up in one sitting; perfect for gifting during the holidays! Instructions are included to create a pinch in the fabric, intended to be worn in the front, although you are welcome to omit this element entirely for a headband with the same width all the way around.

dc: double crochet
fpdc: front post double crochet
rep: repeat
RS: right side
sc: single crochet
sk: skip
st(s): stitch(es)
WS: wrong side

Skill Level: Beginner

Turning Chain: The turning chain does not count as a stitch.

Stitch Counts: Stitch counts are listed after each row. If no stitch count is given, there has been no change since the previous row.

Right Side: The “right side” of the fabric is the side facing you when you are crocheting the double crochet rows.

Fpdc: When you work your front post double crochets, you will be instructed to stitch into the dc from 2 rows below. This means you will skip over your recently completed row of single crochets and stitch into the double crochet just beneath this row of single crochets to create the look of an elongated stitch.
