A 5 mm hook
A darning needle

Papatya Mouline

Main Band:
Make a chain of 16.
Row 1: Hdc in third ch from hook, hdc in each chain across. (15 hdc)
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in the top of the next 14 stitches. (15 hdc)
Repeat Row 2* 52 times, or until the band fits around your head.
Fold with right sides together, sl st in the BLO of both sides to end.  

Cut yarn and sew in ends.

Cinch the band at the join to create 2 folds, stitch back and forth through the middle to secure the folds. (Don’t worry, this will be covered)

Make a chain of 6.
Row 1: Hdc in third Ch from hook. Hdc in each Ch across. (5 hdc)
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in the top of the next 4 stitches. (5 hdc)

Cut yarn off with approx 40 cm tail.

On the inside of the headband, use the tail to secure small band in place.
