Texture, color and quick to work up, the country spice crochet headband has it all! The headband is worked from the bottom up then the texture is added with a technique I call the horizontal single crochet (video included!). The headband is written in baby-adult sizes and measures approx. 5″ wide.
Finish with a cute front accent and you have a beautiful headband! Fun to make in so many colors and great for leftover yarn!

Texture Accent (Horizontal single crochet):
With new color pull up a st on the back seam in between the band and the first row. Sc in between each st around. Fasten off a long tail and weave it into the first st to join.
Repeat the texture accent between each set of rows, alternating colors on each row. Weave in all ends.
Here’s a video showing the technique:
With your seam facing the back, you will work the front accent on the front of your work. Cut a long piece of your contrasting color yarn. With blunt needle, sew your yarn around the top and first row of the body and tie a knot on the inside. Continue to bring your yarn around the top and through the first row many times (at least 10 times). Knot on the inside and fasten off.
