Hook and stitch this headband with spring inspired colors
This simple crochet headband with cross stitched hearts is perfect for spring or any other season that needs some happy colors. It is suitable for almost any adult size head and can be adjusted at the ends of the headband.

Abbreviations:

ch= chain
sc= single crochet
sc2tog= single crochet two together
stst= standing stitch

Techniques:

Single crochet two together: insert hook in first stitch and draw up loop, insert crochet hook in second stitch and draw up loop, pull yarn through both loops, now the two stitches have become one stitch.

Standing stitch: Make a slip knot onto your hook, insert hook in first stitch and make a single crochet like you normally would.

Cross stitch:
Cross stitches meet at the corners, so don't leave room between them.
I worked the cross stitches with my yarn held double, for a more denser look, but you can do whatever you like.
