RS = right side

3L hdc = half double crochet worked in the 3rd loop (see special stitches section below)
3L hdc (3rd loop hdc): worked the same as a regular hdc just in a different loop than a regular hdc. In order to achieve the knit look in hdc, the hdc stitch is worked in the third loop either in front of or behind and below the top two loops that are generally used for a stitch.
Notes about pattern:
- Headband is worked in two flat rectangles which are then seamed at the back as well as along the inside of both rectangles with one rectangle placed over the other creating the twist.
- Ch 2 at beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
Rectangle (make 2)

Leaving a long tail approx 14” long for sewing, fasten off. Note: long length of yarn only needed on 1 of the rectangles.
Twisting & Sewing Headband
Lay 1 rectangle flat with RS facing. Place 2nd rectangle with RS facing out over 1st rectangle overlapping in the center. Align ends of rectangle and attach with stitch markers. Fold ends together to form a circle. WS will now be facing out. With long length of yarn, sew back seam together.
Where two rectangles join at center back seam, count 16 (18) stitches from center back seam on both sides. Place stitch markers through both rectangles. With long length of yarn, whip stitch from back seam to stitch markers on both sides by using unused bottom loop of foundation ch from 1 rectangle and 3L hdc of 2nd rectangle. Weave in ends.
