I needed to make a headwrap and needed to make one FAST! I had no time for any fru fru-ness (yup I most likely made that up!). I was just looking for a simple pattern that I could work up quickly and embellish how I wanted but had a hard time finding one.
If you know the crochet basics then you can do this! This headwrap is perfect by itself or embellished with whatever type of flower or bow pattern you like. I found this particular flower pattern on Pinterest…Who doesn’t LOVE Pinterest?!…I modified it slightly BUT it was exactly what I was looking for! I was pretty pumped to find it cause I had no time to mess around OR think to hard
This is from now on my GO-TO, no-brainer headwrap pattern!
Note: When working the hdc stitches insert hook BETWEEN the stitches NOT in the top 2 loops. I love the way the stitches lay when worked this way and since the piece is worked back & forth it provides a uniformed look. See picture below.
any WW yarn
Size H 5.0mm hook
Yarn sewing needle
One button – I got my awesome vintage button from Le Hair Couture
ch – chain
sk – skip
slst – slip stitch
st – stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
Gauge: 7hdc x (almost) 6 rows = 2″ square
Finished headwrap measures approx. 22″ long
* I tend to crochet on the loose side so if you find as you’re working this up that it may be too short for you, just add some extra rows right before starting the decrease.
Row 1 – ch5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across to end, ch1, turn. (4)
Row 2 – hdc in 1st st, ch2, sk 2 sts, hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (2 sts & a ch2 sp…button hole)
Row 3 – 2hdc in 1st st, 2hdc in ch2 sp, 2hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 4 – hdc in each st across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 5 – 2hdc, hdc in next 4, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 6 – hdc across, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 7 – 2hdc, hdc in next 6, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 8 – hdc across, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 9 – 2hdc, hdc in next 8, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (12)
Row 10 – hdc across, ch1, turn. (12)
Rows 11-55 – REPEAT Row 10. (12)
Row 56 – sk 1st st, hdc in next 9, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 57 – hdc across, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 58 – sk 1st st, hdc in next 7, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 59 – hdc across, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 60 – sk 1st st, hdc in next 5, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 61 – hdc across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 62 – sk 1st st, hdc in next 3, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (4)
Row 63 – hdc across, ch1, DO NOT TURN. (4)
NOW work SC down the side of the piece all the way around by putting 1sc in each hdc row & 2sc in each corner. Slst to the first sc made to join. Finish off and weave in your ends.
Line up your button hole to the other side and sew on your button of choice! EASY PEASY!!
I think this would make an awesome scrap yarn project with different colored rows!!
