1. Measure the circumference of your head.
2. Calculate the gauge (how many stitches you crochet on 10 cm) by crocheting sc in a square (10x10cm). Measure with a measuring tape or a ruler how many stitches can fit on 5 cm.
Count: (the number of stitches on 5 cm)x2 = the amount of stitches on 10 cm
3. Calculate how many chain stitches you’ll need to get the right length for the headband.
Count: (the number of stitches on 10 cm) x (the circumference (cm) of your head + 5 cm)x0.1). Ex. (18)x ((56+5))x0.1)= 109.8 ~ 110 (round to an even number of stitches)
Crochet chain stitches (part 3) according to your calculations. (ex. 110) ch, turn.
r 1-6: 1 sc in each chain stitch. ch, turn. (ex. 110)
Count: ((the total number of stitches)-50)/2=X.
Ex. (110-50)/2=30 stitches
- Now it’s time to choose how wide you want your headband. I chose to make each strand 6 rows wide which means that the headband became 6x3(+2) wide. It’s up to you to choose how many rows you make each strand.
r 7: X sc (ex. 30), 50 ch, skip 50 s, X sc (ex. 30). (the total number of stitches should be unchanged, ex. 110)
r 8-13: 1 sc in each s. ch, turn. (ex. 110)
r 14: X sc (ex. 30), 50 ch, skip 50 s, X sc (ex. 30). (the total number of stitches should be unchanged, ex. 110)
v 15-20: 1 sc in each chain stitch. ch, turn. (ex. 110)
- Cut of the tread but save approximately 30 cm so that you have something to attach the ends of the headband with.
- Sew both ends together with each other.
PS. If the headband became to short you can crochet a couple of single crochet rows in one end.
