Free Crocheted Headband Pattern

Monthly Inspiration - The End of the Rainbow Headband

You won't need the luck of the Irish with this colorful headband that let's you find your own lucky pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.



When I saw all the beautiful colors available in the Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby Yarn, I just knew that a rainbow was in order and with March just around the corner I was inspired to give it a clover leaf and "pot of gold" theme. This headband is crocheted around a pre-made non-tapered 1/4 inch wide headband.

HEADBAND:

With size 5.00mm hook and Black yarn, ch 2

View this slide show for photo illustrations on creating a foundation row:




Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in each of next 60 hdc, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc in each of next 60 hdc, turn.

Fold crocheted headband around 1/4 inch formed headband, working through row 3 and row 1's ch-1 foundations stitches, ch 1, [insert hook through next row 3 sc AND row 1 chain to create a sc] across, fasten off.


First Curl:

With size 5.00mm hook and purple yarn, chain 21, work 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of next 20 ch's.

Choose a hdc on headband (about 15 or 20 from end), insert hook around hdc and join with a sl st. Fasten off.


For extra "hold" use the tail made at the beginning of the chain-21 and join it with a sl st around same hdc just joined to.

I did not weave in my ends, I chose to leave them about 2 or 3 inches long as part of the headband design.

Golden Clovers:



With size 10 crochet thread and 2.25mm crochet hook, ch 2

Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hk.

Rnd 2: [To create next leaf (sl st, ch 3, 3 tr, ch 3, sl st) in next sc] 4 times, join with sl st in first sl st worked.

This shows 1 "leaf" completed on rnd 1, just 3 more to make.

Rnd 3: [Working in next leaf, work 3 sc in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next tr, sl st in next tr, 3 dc in next tr, 3 sc in next ch-3] twice; to make stem: sl sl in first sl st on next leaf, ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each of next 4 chs, sl st in same sl st as beginning of stem; repeat from [ to ] twice more, sl st in first sl st to join.

Here is the ch-6 for the stem.

To join clover to headband, chain desired length, join to headband with a sl st in among the rainbow curls.

Make as many Golden Clovers as you'd like, with different lengths of joining ch's.

This Golden Clover was joined with a chain 15 so it hangs
just below the rainbow curls.

These Golden Clovers were joined with a chain 3
so that they are at the top of the rainbow curls.
