Plain Jane Crochet Headwrap

Christmas is right around the corner! So along with the business of the holiday season, I have been wanting to hand make some gifts for friends and family this year. I just haven't had the time to sit down with a complicated pattern and make some big project. I needed something simple, yet versatile, that all the women would like. 

This pattern is so easy, a complete beginner could do it. I feel weird even calling it a pattern. It's that simple. You just need to know 3 things, the foundation double crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. If you're new to the foundation double crochet (like I was), there is a great video tutorial here that I used to learn it.

Plain Jane Crochet Head Wrap Pattern

Size H hook
A skein of yarn (You can make a couple of these with one skein)
Yarn Needle to weave in ends

Row 1: Foundation Double Crochet 62 times (or until it wraps comfortably around your head)
Row 2: Ch 2 (does not count as DC), turn, DC in each stitch across.
Repeat row 2 five more times.
Fold piece in half, and slip stitch the ends together.

Ta-da! You now have a perfectly cute, wearable, and comfy Christmas gift for someone special! And it was so easy I bet you want to make another one for yourself, right?! I know I do.

Hopefully this helps some of you knock out a few Christmas gifts before your time is up!

Happy Hookin'!
