Crochet with Kath – Turban wrap headband
Need a quick, cosy project for the cold snap? This headband has a gorgeous chunky texture, made by working into the back loops and front loops, with a fabulous vintage vibe. It takes around an hour to make- so what are you waiting for?!
You will need:
- 1 x 100g ball of Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in Slate Grey
- 6mm hook
- Scissors, yarn needle
BLhtr – back loop half treble
Ch – chain
FLhtr – front loop half treble
Htr – half treble
To fit adult head, around 55cm diameter.
Ready to hook? Let’s go…
- Make 61ch to begin. Starting in the 3rd ch from the hook, make 1htr in each ch across. Turn. You should have 60 sts.
2. For row 2 Make 2ch (doesn’t count as htr), then make a BLhtr in each st across. Turn the work towards you and slide the hook under the loop furthest from you to work into the back loop only.
3. Continue working in back loops of each htr across.
4. For row 3, you’ll be working the front loops only (FLO or FLhtr). Make 2ch, then work one htr in the front loop of the stitch on the row below.
5. Continue making FLhtr in each st across, then turn.
6. Repeat rows 2 and 3 once more, then row 2 again. Fasten off, leaving a long (around 25cm) tail for sewing up.
7. Make another piece the same!
8. Fold one piece in half. Slide the other piece under the fold and fold the second piece so the ends meet.
9. Using the tail of the yarn, sew up the two row ends on both piece.
10. Now sew the two edges together, and you’re done!
There you have it! A wonderfully snug and toasty headband in under an hour of crocheting!
