Thirteen Stitches Headband
The shape of this headband - tapering toward each edge - makes it hug your ears and stay in place quite nicely.
The pattern is easy to follow (I think) and has several photos to clarify the stitches used. You can choose whether or not to add the buttonhole closure. This one has two buttons "stacked" together - the mod swoop (sort of looks like an elf ear) and a hand carved red button that the photo does not do justice to.
I like the fact that even experienced knitter's are fooled by this one! Not only is it crochet . . . it is simple and quick crochet! A great gift for Valentine's day, especially in the colorways featured in this pattern.
The pattern is available on Ravelry for $3.00 US.
