This is a 11 page pdf file pattern with instructions to make this retro 80's style headband. Short hair or long will look great in this extra wide, lacy, crocheted headband. Fastens with a button in back. Pretty and warm any time of year, but sure to keep you warm when the weather is cold.
This pattern includes all the variations shown in the photos in six child sizes. The child sizes have three rows of star stitches with a button enclosure. The infant size (photo 5) is one row of the star stitch (no button).
Infant sizes 12 3/4 to 15 1/4 inches in diameter
Child sizes 16 1/4 to 18 3/4 inches in diameter
For larger sizes you can find the same pattern for adults in my shop.
This Star Stitch or Marguerite Stitch (smaller stars at the sides and larger in the middle to shape the headband) is a beautiful addition to any crochet libray. It can be used for shawls and sweaters or as a panel stitch for purses and hats. A short tutorial with photos takes you step by step to master this stitch.

It is a little different version (there are many versions) - but still the basic stitch I'm using. All patterns are written using US crochet standard terms. If you have ANY problems please contact me.
