Crochet Ribbon and Hearts Hatbands

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. Since Valentines day is just around the corner I decided to make some headbands for my grand daughters. These headbands worked up very fast and are easy to make. I wanted a design that allowed me to use ribbon in the band and had a border worked in, rather than added to it. I tried several variations and they all worked out well.

Supplies: Worsted Weight yarn
Size H Hook
Ribbon (I used ¼ and and 5/8)
Embellishments of your choice

Measurement: 1 ¾ inches wide, length about ½ inch to 1 inch shorter then circumference of head.
Stitch gauge not necessary

Stitches used: chain, single crochet (sc), slip stitch
Turning Picot: chain 2, slip stitch 2nd chain from hook, chain 1

For ¼ or 3/8 ribbon size chain 6, for 5/8 ribbon chain 5.

For ¼ or 3/8 ribbon:
Rd. 1: sc in second chain from hook, chain 2, skip 2 chains and sc in last chain (infants)
sc in second chain from hook, sc in next chain, chain 2, sc in last 2 stitches, work Turning Picot
(chain 2, slip stitch in 2nd chain from hook, chain 1),
turn work.

Repeat this round until desired length is reached, ending with turning picot. Slip stitch both ends
together (ending with 1st chain of first turning picot made), break yarn.

For 5/8 ribbon: chain 5, sc in second chain from hook, chain 3, skip 2 chain, sc in last chain, make turning picot.

Ribbon: Since ribbon doesn't stretch, it needs to be the size of the circumference of the head + 2 inches for securing ends. I added another 1/2 inch to an inch to allow for growing room. The Headband will stretch to accommodate the ribbon. Thread ribbon through loops. (I started with the joined section of the band.) Up through the wrong side, over 2 loops, under 1 loop; repeat. I stretched the headband slightly before cutting the ribbon. Leave about 1 inch tail of ribbon on each end. Sew ends of ribbon together on wrong side. Don't forget to singe ribbon to prevent fraying. For added security sew end pieces of ribbon to the inside of the band.

If you want to use the headband without appliques or clips, rows should end in multiples of 3. Otherwise you may run 1 or 2 loops short when threading your ribbon. Appliques and hair clips applied over the seamed area, will not only hide the seam but also any shortfall of loops.

I am still writing up the patterns for the hearts I made. Should be able to post those later in the day.
Unless I specify that I used  a pattern created by someone else, the pattern is my original. You are free to make or sell products made with any of my patterns. Please don't redistribute or claim my patterns as your own.

If you need help with any of my projects or are stuck on a project of your own, please leave me a message and I will try to help you along as much as I can.
