Who doesn't like a relaxing bubble bath at home?
Here's something to pamper yourself with! This spa headband is a very easy and therapeutic crochet pattern. It takes any type of left over bulky scrap yarn. It's a great spa headband that you can keep available in your bathroom for when you need to pamper yourself for an at-home facial or to give it to a buddy along with a face mask! Each purchase of the headband above from my Etsy store, comes with a free face mask! Or, if you are up for the challenge, then you can find the pattern below and make one. For an ad-free, inexpensive pattern, download it here (thank you for the support). This pattern is for the head band only. You may buy the head band with our interchangeable decals, here.
To start, you'll need the following:
Loops & Threads Copenhagen < 1 skein (20 m/22 yd) 100% Acrylic; Colourway: Fuzzy Slippers
On Sales Now from Michael's.
Weight: Super Bulky
Gauge: 8sts and 10 rows per 4"/10cm
Crochet Hook Size: 9 mm
Finished Size 21" circumference (can be adjusted based on head size and the # of foundation chs)
I used the left over yarn from the Valentine's Day Scarf that I made to finish this cute spa headband!
Chain = Ch
Yarn Over = Yo
Slst= Slip stitch
Stitch(es) = St(s)
Special Stitch = Herringbone Half Double Crochet (Hdc): Yo, insert hook into the next stitch, Yo, draw through the stitch and first loop on hook, Yo, draw through remaining loops on hook.
Foundation: Ch 38, Slst to join round making sure not to twist (place stitch marker to indicate the beginning of round)
Row 1: Herringbone Hdc all 38 sts (38)
Repeat Row 1 twice more, cut and bind off, and sew in the ends.
To make the bow:
Pinch/cinch right in the middle where the rounds are joined and wrap spare yarn over this part. Tie a double knot on the inside of the head band and weave loose ends.
You can add the snap button with a heart or flower decal that you can find for free on Ravelry as they are not my own patterns.
