Materials are sufficient to make multiple Headbands

Flag Headband

Lion Brand® Heartland®


12 sc + 15 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


1. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Carry old color along the side edge of the piece.
2. Star is made separately and then sewed to Headband.

With A, ch 5, leaving a long beginning tail.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 4 sts.
Row 2 (RS): Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rows 3-24: Rep Row 2.
At the end of Row 25, change to B.
Rows 25 and 26: With B, Rep Row 2.
Change to C.
Rows 27 and 28: With C, rep Row 2.
Change to B.
Rows 29-64: Rep Rows 25-28 nine times.
At the end of Row 64, fasten off C and change to B.
Rows 65-68: With B, rep Row 2.
Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail.


With C and leaving a long beginning tail, ch 5; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: (2 sc, ch 1) into ring 5 times; join with sl st in beg ch.
Rnd 2: *Ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, sl st in next ch-1 sp; rep from * 4 times.
Fasten off.
Fold one end of Headband around elastic, sew in place with yarn tail. Being careful not to twist Headband, rep on opposite end.
With yarn tail, sew Star to Headband. Weave in ends.

Flag Headband Reviewed by Christiane Roslawski on 2014-06-26 *****
I made the Flag headband, it was easy, but I was wondering if there was another way then weaving all the strands at each end, each time I change colors. I didn't use the elastic, and instead of 64 rows, I did 62 rows. It fits my head perfect, but I'm hoping it will not be too big for my 8th and 12th years old. Thank you for the pattern.
