The LIVLOVE Headband is knit flat in a rib stitch pattern.
This pattern is great for advanced-beginner knitters who are looking to make a stylist headband. The finished band fits heads approximately 20-22 inches around. Thinner version measures 2.5” wide and thicker version measures 3.5” wide.

Pull out the 6(8) live sts and put them on a 3rd needle. BO with a 3 needles bind off. Weave in all ends while using them to tack in the braid as desired.
TIP: I like using the crochet chain provisional cast-on. Try to use some scrap yarn in the same thickness as your chunky yarn. This will make it easier to get everything started.
