Reflective in the Dark Headband

What a beautiful headband (pattern teaches a new stitch called ‘foundation single crochet‘ or esc). Thank you, Hooks and Heels for  creating this pattern and sharing it with the rest of the world.

After making a couple of headbands using the original pattern, we decided to readjust it to the RED HEART Reflective brandThe yarn is a lot thicker, so math did not work out on the sizing. Also, living in Alaska and having most of the winter in darkness, we thought people would appreciate having a headband that reflects in the car lights. Due to thicker thread and pattern adjustment, it covers the ears completely and is extremely warm. Enjoy this renewed pattern:
