Baby Head Bands (Tutorial)


Paso a Paso: CINTAS PARA BEBÉ




Materials:
Cotton yarn (fine or fingerling #2), just a small amount
Crochet needle No. 3 mm
1 elastic band for pony tails
Sewing needle to attach the flower on the band

Materiales:
Hilo de algodón fino (sólo una pequeña cantidad)
Aguja de crochet No. 3 mm
Banda elástica
Aguja para coser la flor sobre la banda




Instructions (Instrucciones):

7 cadenas

* Start with 7 chains (for a wider band, use 9 chains). These chains will serve as the foundation, in preparation to cast on the elastic band on the next row.
* Inicie con 7 cadenas [9 para una cinta más ancha]. Estas cadenas sirven como base para la próxima hilera, cuando los puntos se montan sobre la banda elástica.


por debajo de la banda, 1 cad + pto. simple

Row 1> Make one more chain, and then insert the needle in the 2nd chain from hook. Pass the needle below the elastic band, pick the yarn and finish the stitch on top of the elastic band. Repeat 6 more times. (Total: 7 st)
Hilera 1> Hacer 1 cadena más. Insertar en la segunda cadena desde la aguja, y hacer medio pilar (punto sencillo), montándolo sobre la banda elástica. (Total: 7 p.)


7 puntos simples

Row 2> 3 chains (counts as first dc). Make dc over the sc´s below (Total: 7 st)
Hilera 2> 3 cadenas (cuenta como primer vareta), hacer una vareta sobre cada medio punto. (Total: 7 p.)


7 varetas

Row 3> Chain 3 (counts as first dc). Make 1 dc in the space in between the dc´s below. Repeat in every space. (Total: 7 dc’s)
Hilera 3> 3 cadenas (cuenta como primer pilar / vareta). Hacer 1 pilar en el espacio entre las varetas de la hilera anterior, y repetir en cada espacio. (Total: 7 p)


7 varetas entre varetas anteriores

Row 4 and up> Repeat row 3 until you reach the desired length [Check the chart below for the approximate measures according to age].
Hilera 4> Repetir la Hilera 3 hasta alcanzar el tamaño deseado [Revisar el cuadro abajo para calcular el largo según la edad].

repetir...hasta el largo deseado

Here is list of suggested sizes:
(Note: When measuring, take into account the elastic band as well, not stretched)
A continuación les doy una lista de medidas sugeridas:
(Nota: Al medir, tomen en cuenta la banda elástica, sin estirarla)


casi terminado...

Last row> Finish with a row of sc’s, casting them on to the other side of the elastic band. Be careful not to twist.
Última hilera> Termine con una hilera de puntos simples, montándolos sobre el otro extremo de la banda elástica.


FLOWER (FLOR)
Finally, decorate with a crochet flower, and sew it on the band, close to the top.
Finalmente, decore la cinta con una flor en ganchillo, y cosa en uno de los costados de la cinta.

  11. I love that you used the pony tail holder to be an expander! I just started making some crochet headbands and was feeling bummed that they weren't more elastic. Now I just need to go get some hair elastics in colors other than black... Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  15. muy bonitas, muy original utilizara la goma de esta forma. Yo suelo utilizar una goma mas gruesa, pero pienso que así es mas comodo para las niñas.

  16. Hi....thanks for the great pattern. I am going to try for sure. I notice in a picture of the purple headband the elastic looks doubled?? Do you double it up to make it smaller for the smaller size headbands?

    1. Great comment! I dubled it because the elastic was too long, and I wanted to use that color ;-)
