EVERLY HEAD WRAP 

One of my friends (Hi Lacy!) adjusted the Everly Head Wrap pattern for her baby. Lacy was kind enough to let me use her photos and notes to provide you guys with the smaller sizes for the Everly Head Wrap. Now you can make one for your little ones too (thank you Lacy!).

MATERIALS
J hook

Worsted Weight Yarn
Yarn Needle
Scissors

YARN NOTES
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.

PATTERN NOTES
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.

ABBREVIATIONS
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

BABY SIZE HEAD WRAP  (note: the baby size head wrap in the pictures is slightly different from the pattern below…the center of the headwrap where the sts look cinched together is just a little shorter.)
Ch 49

Row 1 – Working in back hump for this row, hdc in 2nd ch from hk, hdc in next 20, sc in next, slst in next 4, sc in next, hdc in last 21, join with slst to first hdc of rnd forming a lp. (48)
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 21, sc in next, slst in next 4, sc in next, hdc in last 21.

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 8 – Repeat Rnd 2.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

TODDLER/CHILD SIZE HEAD WRAP
Ch 55

Row 1 – Working in back hump for this row, hdc in 2nd ch from hk, hdc in next 22, sc in next, slst in next 6, sc in next, hdc in last 23, join with slst to first hdc of rnd forming a lp. (54)
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 23, sc in next, slst in next 6, sc in next, hdc in last 23, join.

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 10 – Repeat Rnd 2.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

    You don’t happen to have YouTube videos for some of your patterns? I’ve never made anything like this.

    Hello, I just love this pattern! I was just wondering if you could provide with approximate dimensions. I will be making this as a present, and I just want to make sure I am making it the right size. Thank you.

    THANK YOU FOR THIS PATTERN. IT WAS MY FIRST HEADBAND AND IT TURNED OUT GREAT. MADE IT FOR A FRIENDS BABY DUE IN A COUPLE MONTHS.

    If I’m making one for a tiny baby girl, under 6lbs, would you suggest 42 stitches for base?

    I just made this for a tiny baby girl, under 5 lbs, and I used 39 starting chain. It came out to be a 12″ circumference which was found on my hat chart. Hope this helps.

    I made this for my baby girl who is 6 months old. It looks soooo cute on her but more importantly it keeps her hair out of her eyes and ears. Thank you so much for this pattern! I now have to make one for my older daughter and myself .
