Hey! My name is Grace and I am the designer and blogger behind my blog, Stitchberry. I started crocheting in 2015 because I wanted a hobby that I could easily take with me everywhere and that would keep my hands busy! Little did I know that crocheting would turn into more than just a hobby. Shortly after crocheting, I discovered a love of designing. I love dreaming up modern and timeless designs, putting those designs into stitches, and sharing it with the world!
In the past few months, so many of my WIPs have been bigger projects, that I was really craving to make something small and easy. Enters the Conley Headband! This headband is so easy and quick to whip up. I love that I can make one in an afternoon (makes for the perfect last-minute gift!).
Also that texture?!?! Lately I have been obsessing over this stitch combo of treble and single crochets. It creates these tiny little “bobble” that makes this headband modern and fun. I also love the contrast between the bobble texture of the headband and the simple texture of the band.
100 yards of worsted weight (4) yarn
H/5.00mm crochet hook
This pattern is written in US crochet terms.
Due to the texture, the headband is worked inside out, then it is flipped right side out.
