  1. Love this! Want to add it to my ravelry, but for some reason the link you provided isn’t working, and doing a search for it on Ravelry isn’t turning up anything, as well? Boo!!! ??

  2. I love this headband but when I started reading the description and direction, realize it’s for crochet. I don’t crochet, but I do knit. Do you have any similar patterns for knitters? Thanks.

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Thank you for stopping and liking the pattern… I don’t have any knit patterns… I do knit, but am not proficient enough to writ patterns.

  3. I see your picture with 3 headbands and they all look like they’re a different size. Did you use different kind of yarn or hooks in each one? Or did you adjusted the started chain? Thanks for the wonderful free partners and also thanks in advance for your reply.

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      They are very close to the same size… the picture is deceiving… but Yes they yarn did make some difference.

  4. I have tried 10x to not get the chain to twist when I join. Is there a trick ?

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Lay it out flat on a table,, Slowly slide the ends together keeping it flat against the table. Once the ends meet pick it up and join… Good luck

  5. I really liked the Headband. I’ve been looking for a simple one and you have provided one for me. I make two last night. So easy. Thanks.

  6. Love it! It’s so simple and elegant! I think the little bit of “bling” that you added absolutely makes the headband.

    I’d love to have you link up at my Yarn Fanatic Party! http://philwife.blogspot.com/2015/01/yarn-fanatic-party-20.html

  7. Hi I am very new to crochet love this headband but have no idea what the directions mean is there a video for this headband thank you

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Sorry, there is no video, this pattern does require basic knowledge of pattern reading… There are alot of great video tutorials on the internet to help with that… I hope you will continue to try to figure it out

  8. Love this pattern!! Its so pretty

  9. Beautiful pattern. Thanks for sharing. (Linked from Moogly) (PS Can’t read the labels for the blank fields)

  10. Hi…great pattern but I have a question….
    1. Why the chain 5, why not just join? It seems to make it bulky when trying to join everything together. … thanks and have a nice day….

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      That is just how I designed the pattern… chains apposed to full stitches take up less bulk for the gathering section. the chains will be gathered and covered with a crochet ring…The chains also add to the diameter of the head band… with out them it would not fit…

      • Made perfect sense to me why you chain there. I’ve done something similar to that technique before when you want less bulk in a particular section. I love the pattern. Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. Had “error occurred” retype…..I would like to receive wintertide headband. Having trouble getting pattern. Thank you.

  12. Thank you for this adorable pattern! 🙂 I just completed one in RED with a button and I love the outcome! It will join with several other styles I made for my oldest Granddaughter who loves headbands & getting them from her Nana. 😀
    I just know she’s going to love this one!

  13. Hi there, I love this pattern and I know you used Lion Brand Woolspin but I was wondering if using Lion Brand Hometown would have the same effect

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      I believe the Hometown is super bulky… and the wool spun was just bulky… This would result in a different effect and size.

  14. I love this pattern and would like to make it for myself, but I’m not a fan of bulky yarn. How can I adjust it so that I can use worsted yarn instead?

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Unfortunately I designed it with bulky in mind and since it is free I don’t have directions for the needed changes to worsted weight… but you can try using 2 strands of worsted weight… or a larger hook and one skein… other than that you will have to play with the stitch count…

  15. I love your patterns… Your very inspiring although I have yet to try this one! I have done almost all of your Amazing Grace collection, because I have my own Amazing Grace and she is my world!

  16. Hey there! I love this pattern to pieces and just completed the headband portion of it! I’ve gotten to the decorative cover of it, but I’m confused as to how to add it to the headband?. Should I simply wrap it around the chains? or weave it through them? Again, thanks for such an adorable pattern!!

  17. I love this pattern! Thank you for creating and sharing! Can you tell me what the width should be?

    Have an amazing day!

  18. Great pattern! Quick question: is row 3 worked in back loops only as well? Thank you!

  19. Would this fit a toddler about 18 months old? Or maybe if I change hook size?

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      You can mess with the hook size to see if you can get that to work… I don’t have different sizes calculated

  20. This was my first headband. I made it as a Christmas gift. I am going to make one for myself as well, I am not a hat person. Easy pattern like it a lot.

  21. Can this pattern be downloaded as it is free? If so, where is the link?
