How To Crochet A Wavy Two Tone Headband

I designed this headband in the beginning of Spring. I videotaped myself making it but I was not able to upload, edit, convert, and write the pattern. So last week I started a week long process of working on my video and writing this pattern for all my loyal fans and followers to make them happy again (hopefully).

When I was designing this headband I was fiddling with the waviness of the crocheted band in the style of "trial and error", along with some math and some common sense.
Then I decided to use a fake flower as an adornment, instead of crocheting one. I kind of like it better that way. But if you do not want to purchase fake bouquet to use only one flower as an adornment, then you can crochet a flower instead.

It is a great quick project. Could be done for party favors, or small gifts for anyone (who likes headbands) - especially if it is done from a beautiful and expensive looking (or even expensive) yarn.

***************************************

Work on multiple of 13 + 4 sts, for example:
(3 x 13) + 4 = 43 (possible bracelet)
(4 x 13) + 4 = 56 (headband for American Girl Doll, and possibly for a newborn)
(5 x 13) + 4 = 69 (baby or toddler)
(6 x 13) + 4 = 82 and so on...


Size: 
Depends on how many stitches you would like to use

Material:
Any yarn of medium thickness (#4), 2 complimentary colors (I used Impeccable)
Hook - F (3.75 mm)
Scissors

Abbreviations:

ch - chain
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
incr - 2 double crochet sts into same stitch
decr - double crochet stitch decrease (watch my video)
sl st - slip stitch
sts - stitches


Step-by-Step Directions:

Part 1 - Red Strand
Foundation - ch56

1 dc into 4th ch from the hook; 1 dc into next st; *[incr - 3x; 1 dc into next 2 sts; decr - 3x; 1 dc into next 2 sts]* - repeat (= total 4x if working with 56 sts; 5x if working with 69 st; 6x if working with 82 sts etc.); make a knot, cut the yarn off leaving about 2-3 inches long tail.

Part 2 - Green Strand
Foundation - ch56

1 dc into 4th ch from the hook; 1 dc into next st; *[decr - 3x; 1 dc into next 2 sts; incr - 3x; 1 dc into next 2 sts]* - repeat (= total 4x if working with 56 sts; 5x if working with 69 st; 6x if working with 82 sts etc.); make a knot, cut the yarn off leaving about 3-4 inches long tail 

Finishing:
Sew ends of the Part 1 together, thus creating a circle. Make sure it is not twisted.
Without twisting, wrap Part 2 around Part 1 so it looks like it is braided - the seams should be above each other. Sew a flower (either crocheted or fake one) at the seams. Watch my video for reference.
