I like the occasional headband. They spruce up your hair in an instant. I also like happy colors, so this pattern was a no-brainer. I've read about cross stitching over crochet items, so I thought I could give it a go. Turns out, it's super easy and the end result is so pretty! I came up with the stitch pattern myself; big and little hearts in different colors. Originally they were meant to be arrows, but that didn't work out so well.
The pattern is pretty easy to crochet up. It only uses single crochet stitches (US terms) and a few chain stitches. As far as the cross stitching goes, the pictures speak for themselves ;) The size can be adjusted with the end chain cords and is suitable for almost any adult sized head.
10x10 cm (4x4 inch) = 20 st and 20 rows.
Main part: 25 cm (9 4/5 inch) wide and 5 cm (2 inch) high
decrease part(s): 7,5 cm (3 inch) wide and 2 cm ( 4/5 inch) high
total headband width (without the chain ends): 40 cm (15 7/10 inch)
You can shorten or lengthen the decrease parts or make the chain ends shorter or longer to make it fit to your head.
