Spring Inspired Crochet Headband With Free Pattern

crochet headband pattern
 
I am on a spring headband kick these days. In fact, spring everything, really. Just got back from a sunny, warm vacation and now I am doing all I can to deny what is left of winter here in Indiana.
 
Here is the pattern I designed for the above headband, composed of three granny squares and two triangles made in the round, with slip stitch ties. This beauty works up quick. I used DMC thread size 5, and a size D crochet hook
 
 
Materials:
3 colors of DMC size 5 (Color A=bright pink, B=Green, C=light pink in the above pictures)
Size D crochet hook
Tapestry needle for finishing

Foundation Ring: Using A (B), ch 6, join with sl st to form a ring
Round 1(RS): Chain 5 - this counts as first dc and ch 2; (dc in ring, ch 2) 7 times; join with sl st in 3rd chain of beginning chain 5---8 dc and 8 ch-2 loops.
Round 2: With RS facing, join B (A) with sl st in next ch-2 sp, ch 1, in same sp work sc, hdc, 2 dc, hdc and sc; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

corner spaces. Fasten off.

 

Finishing:

Seam one triangle motif, 4 flower square motifs and 1 triangle motif

together, either by sewing, slip stitching, or single crocheting. When

seaming tog the last square and triangle, at the end of the seam

turn the work and sc along the edge of the joined motifs. Cont

down to the point of a triangle. To make tie: Sl st into st at point

of triangle, then ch 50. Skip first ch st and sl st in rem ch, then sl

st into the st at the point of the triangle again. Cont to sc along

the edge of the joined motifs to the point of the second triangle
