Braided, a knit look headband uses half double crochet and a special stitch that I have not seen else where that I call the herringbone single crochet. It creates the surface braid and the taper in the headband for the nape of the neck for comfort, while still covering the ears on those chilly days. The head band measures approximately 4 Inches at widest point, 2 1/2 Inches at narrow point, and about 19 Inches around, but is easily adjustable. Worked in the round on a foundation single crochet base so that it is equally stretchy throughout the headband. A regular starting chain would create an un-stretchy row. Pattern includes directions with photos for the foundation single crochet.
