Knot Me Up Headband, Free Crochet Pattern

Use this crochet pattern to make a retro style headband. Who wouldn't look cute in a headband like this?
The pattern includes all sizes from baby to adult. The headband is worked using the same stitch as my
popular Brooklyn mittens pattern, the extended single crochet. Both the front and back of the stitch look
equally good. It is completely up to you which side you want to tie the bow on. I hope you enjoy
crocheting this headband.

Chain 58 (68, 76, 80, 84, 86, 94), sl st to the first ch to form a ch ring.
Round 1: Ch 3(counts as first esc and ch 1), skip 1 st, *(1 esc in next st, ch 1, skip 1 st), repeat from * till
end of the round. Do not turn.-------------29(34, 38, 40, 42, 43, 47)esc
Note: Esc is the stitch right before it to the right and not the one right on top of it. See pic above to find
out where to insert your hook to make an esc.
Round 2 to End: Work 1 esc into top of beginning chain 2 of previous round, ch 1, *(1 esc in next esc,
ch 1), repeat from * in a spiral without turning or slip stitching at the end of rounds until your headband is
2 inches wide and you are 1/2 inch away from the beginning tail of your work, sc in next esc, sl st in next
esc. Fasten off with an 8-inch tail.

Use the beginning and ending tails to wind around your headband to gather it and get it ready for the tie.
Make a couple of knots to secure, trim the tails. This part will be concealed under the tie and you do not
have to waste your time weaving in the tails.
