Happy Hearts Valentine Headband Crochet Pattern

Happy Hearts Valentine Headband Crochet Pattern
I have had this headband pattern ready for a while.
I was waiting for final touches to be done before
 releasing it.
I think you will have fun making this headband.
I designed it in 3 sizes.
And I have made a photo tutorial 
to help you understand the technique.
I decided to design it in 
Red Heart Super Saver I had on hand.
Any Worsted Weight yarn will 
work for this pattern.
This headband is a great way to
 use up some of your left over WW yarns.
I really like the flow of the head band. 
How it has a graceful flow across the
 top and bottom of the the ring of hearts.

 Join c3, to the bottom row of headband,
 1 hdc in each st around, join to 1st st, and tie off.
Weave in your ends.

By chaining behind the headband, when moving from rows,
 It eliminates having lose ends to weave in.

If your headband is a little "bunchy" you 
may need to loosen up your stitching.

 You can also use a Styrofoam head to
 block the headband, 
by Dampening the headband 
and put it on the head and let it dry.
