Midas Bow Headband
The Midas Bow headband is a simple crochet pattern, easy enough for beginners, that seamlessly blends function and a bit of fun. The headband provides warmth all winter long while the bow adds the sparkle.
For this headband you will need:
Super bulky weight yarns; I use Lion Brand Thick and Quick (in fisherman) for the headband, and Lion Brand Gold Leaf yarn (in white/gold)
Size P crochet hook
Large tapestry needle
You will need to know:
Ch - Chain
Sl St - Slip Stitch
Sc - Single Crochet
(Yes!! It's that simple!!)
As easy peasy as two rectangles, we will start with the headband first and the move onto the bow. This pattern is written for size 6-12 Months but you can easily adapt the length of the headband to fit any size by increasing or decreasing the beginning chain.
Headband, using Lion Brand Thick and Quick Yarn:
1. Ch 28, turn
2. Sc in the second stitch from hook and continue sc'ing across chain row. Turn (27)
3. Sc across. turn (27)
4. Sc across, turn (27)
5. Sc across, turn (27)
6. Sc across, turn (27)
7. Sc across, turn (27)
8. Now you will have a long rectangle of sc stitches. Fold in half (short sides of the rectangle together) to form a loop. Line up the short ends of the rectangle and sl st closed. Tie off yarn.
9. Using the tapestry needle, weave in tail. Flip the headband right side out so the seam is in the inside.
Bow using Lion Brand Gold Leaf Yarn:
To make a thick and chunky bow we essentially make another mini headband.
1. Ch 13, turn
2. Sc in the second stitch from hook and continue sc'ing across chain row. Turn (12)
3. Sc across, turn (12)
4. Sc across, turn (12)
5. Sc across, turn (12)
6. Now you will have a long rectangle of sc stitches. Fold in half (short sides of the rectangle together) to form a loop. Line up the short ends of the rectangle and sl st closed. So you have a mini loop, just like the headband. Tie off yarn.
7. Using your tapestry needle, weave in tail, and flip right sides out so the seam is on the inside.
8. Hold the bow together so that it lays flat. I place the seam slightly to the side to avoid bulk in the center. Take a long piece of yarn (about a foot) and begin wrapping it around the center of the rectangle (short sides of the rectangle will be the ends of the bow) and squeezing taught to cinch the center. It will now start looking like a bow. Wrap around a few times until you are happy with the shape and tie the beginning strand of yarn to the rest of the tail to secure.
9. Using the rest of the tail, sew to the headband. I just sew the center of the bow to the headband, leaving the rest of the bow free.
It's as simple as that!!
