Very simple hair-band made of curtain rings.
Here I show you a principle of preparing rings to a headband. Actually it is not necessary to have rings with the same measure as mine. You just need to try some things out...like I did.
I don´t remember where I first saw this hairband, but unfortunalety it was not my idea. I just copied it...
For doing exactly mine, you'll need
- 14 curtain rings in size 3,8cm or 1,5",
- any colour of wool or yarn,
- a crochet hook,
- scissors and
- an embroidery needle to hide the ends of the yarn.
Im sorry, I actually have problems with the 'You will need'-List...

Then we start with the second row of rings. Therefore you have to start with 7 single crochets on the first ring of the second row and then do 7 single crochets in the second ring of the second row. After that you have to do a slip stitch into the second ring of the first row. The drawing might help you to understand what I mean. Every line stands for a slip stitch except the first one. This shall only show the beginning on the right side.
Yes, we start on the right side...
Do 10 rows of 12 single crochets and then go thinner by crocheting the first and last two stitches of every second row together until you reach the amount of 4 stitches.
Because every head has another size, I advise you to just try. I often held the band on my head and took my sense as leader. After a while of doing 4 stitch-rows you need to go thicker again, so that you get the same thick end on the other side again. Therefore you need to do two single stitches in the first and last stitch of the fore-round until you have 12 stitches again. You can crochet this 12 stitches together with the end of the rings by slip stitches or sew with the embroidery needle.
