The Ladder Headband Crochet Pattern and Video | Posh Pooch Designs

The Ladder Headband/ Ear Warmer
Free Crochet Pattern and Video
By Sara Sach of
 Posh Pooch Designs
I call it Both a headband and an Ear Warmer because it is wider then a traditional headband, but not quite as wide as an ear warmer, so it the best of both designs.
It's a Quick and Easy pattern, but looks classy When wearing it.
 Just takes about two ounces of any kind 
of Worsted Weight (4) yarn you have on hand.
The headband is stitched using 2 strands of yarn,
and I show you how to do that in the video.
If you want you could also use 1 strand of Chunky (5) yarn.
So there are so many possibilities for color and texture.
Then there is the buttons!

Working down the end of the headband,
st 10 sc, ( 2 sc in the end of each row), ch 1 turn ( 10sc)

R: 6 - 1 sc in each sc, ch1, turn. (10sc)

Place the 2 ends of the Head band together, and sl st them together,
tie off, weave in your ends.

Sew your buttons in the  sc section of the Headband.
I like the way it looks like an over lap without actually overlapping the ends.
