Remember this beautiful yarn!? It’s been transformed…into a free head wrap crochet pattern!
The Everly Head Wrap
Worsted Weight Yarn
I used Arctic Krafts worsted weight wool yarn. Arctic Krafts is a fellow Alaskan that hand dyes yarn and sells her yarn on etsy. Her shop name is ArcticKrafts (beautiful yarn!). Most worsted weight yarns, such as Cascade 220, Lion Brand Wool Ease and the like, will work perfectly with this pattern.
Yardage: You should not need more than 90 yds of worsted weight wool yarn to complete 1 head wrap.
Finished head wrap, when lying flat measures 8 1/2″ long and 4″ wide (It’s very stretchy and fits great!)
You will not count your beginning ch as a st.
Joining – Always join with a slst to the first st of your rnd and always work the first st of each rnd into the first st of the previous rnd (which should be the SAME st that you joined into).
Back Hump – The back hump of your foundation ch is easy to find. Find the front and back lps of your ch (these lps are also known as stacked V’s or stacked hearts). Turn your ch over and take a peek at the backside of your back and front lps. Those little humps that you see are your back hump lps.
hk-hook Ch-chain Lp(s)-loop(s) rnd-round blo-back loop only
st-stitch slst-slip stitch sc-single crochet hdc-half double crochet
Row 1 – Working in back hump for this row, hdc in 2nd ch from hk, hdc in next 24, sc in next, slst in next 8, sc in next, hdc in last 25, join with slst to first hdc of rnd forming a lp. (60)
Helpful Note: Use your end to sew together the little jag created when joining Row 1.
Rnd 2 – Ch 1 and turn, working in blo for entire rnd, hdc in first 25, sc in next, slst in next 8, sc in next, hdc in last 25.
Helpful Notes: Even though you are working entire rnd in the blo, I still like to slst join into both lps. If you have trouble telling which st is which, then it might be a good idea to use a stitch marker to mark your first and last st. Be careful not to work a st into your slst joins.
Rnd 3 through Rnd 12 – Repeat Rnd 2.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
You can easily make the Everly Head Wrap in multiple colors!
For this multi-colored head wrap, I chose my three colors (C1, C2, C3)
I worked Row 1 through Rnd 4 with C1
Rnd 5 through Rnd 8 with C2
and Rnd 9 through Rnd 12 with C3 (I also added one more Rnd of C3, by just repeating Rnd 2 one more time).
What do you think? Would you wear this head wrap?
