Go USA Crochet Stars Headband

GO USA! Crochet Stars Headband

With The 4th of July coming up a lot of people are going to be looking for some easy crafts they can do for the Weekend to calm the nerves, or pass the free time.  We've made a cute headband to rock out for the 4th!, and here's how I did it.

I took Scarlet, White and Navy Blue, and made the headband.  With a USG6/4.00mm Hook, I chained 3, turn and in the 2nd chain from the hook you single crochet, and single crochet to the end.  Turn and chain.  Single crochet to the end (2 st).  Continue this for approx. 65 rows for an Adult Headband.  You can change this to suit whoever you are making this for.  Once you get to your desired length, instead of closing the loop, I took our 3 colors and made tassles at the end.  I have Red, White and Blue strings tassles on the Right and Left.  And then repeated on the other end.  Then trim the ends of the tassles so they are even.
