This is a simple pattern for beginners! It’s so easy, and that’s why it’s free! I love the movie Donnie Darko, and for some reason, when I was making this, it reminded me of the little girl dance troupe... So, it’s amply named, Sparkle Motion.

This is a headband/ear warmer and uses only single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) stitches.

Instructions:

First measure your head circumference.  The best way to find your head circumference is to take a flexible measuring tape and wrap it around from your forehead to the base of your neck.

Materials:

  • Yarn: Premier Yarns Isaac Mizrahi – Broadway yarn in Imperial colorway – Glitter, Sparkle Worsted weight (4) – 328 yd, 1 ball. I got mine at Michael’s, but it can be found online as well: HERE
  • Hook Size: 4 mm hook, G or equivalent to achieve gauge if you use a different yarn. (Here is a link to a conversion chart if your needles are lettered or numbered: Hook Conversion Chart.)
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle to join edges.
  • Measurements: 23” long (before joining), by 3 5/8 or 58.5 cm x 9.25 cm.
  • Gauge: 16 sts and 20 rows = 4” x 4” or 10 x 10 cm.

Directions for gauge:  Using 4 mm hook, ch16, + 1, *sc in 1st ch from hook, and in each ch to end. ch 1, turn. *repeat to create 20 rows total.

Tips: Keep a tight stitch, I usually pull tight after each sc or dc, but it’s preference. If you decide to crochet a little looser, the width will increase.

Abbreviations:  sc = single crochet  /  dc = double crochet

Instructions:
Ch Row – Chain 88.  (88 chains with specified yarn = appx 23”/58.5 cm.)

R1sc in first st from hook, and in each st to end of row. ch1. turn. (88).
R2dc in each st across entire row. ch 1, turn (88).
R3 – Repeat R1 & R2 until you reach desired width.

I worked approximately 12 rows total. You can make it as thin or wide as you’d like.

Joining together:

Bring the two ends together, and join using your hook, or a needle and yarn. If using your hook, don’t tie off and join ends by inserting hook through both top loops on each end and pull though with a slip stitch. If using a needle, tie off, and sew pieces together in top loops.

You’re finished! See that was easy 😊
