DIY Headband | “X” Closure

ALL THINGS CRAFTY

Today I’m going to share how I made this x closure headband using my Addi-Express Kingsize.

Materials:

Addi-Express Kingsize (46 needle)
Baby Bee Sweet Delight yarn from Hobby Lobby
Yarn Needle
Scissors
Crochet Hook 5mm

Step-By-Step Instructions
This tutorial does not teach the basics of using the Addi-Expess Kingsize

Step 1:
Cast On with Waste Yarn leaving a 6″-8″ tail.
Crank out 5-10 rows.

Step 2: Color Change
Now take your project yarn and place a 24-36″ tail in the center of your Addi.
Place yarn inside the gold yarn feeder and crank out the amount of rows according to size.

Here are my row counts:
*rows are dependent on the type of yarn you use*

Newborn: 60-65 rows
Toddler: 12-18 months 75 rows
Adult: 90 rows

Step 3: Color Change back to Waste Yarn
Cut a 24-36in. tail of your project yarn and color change to waste yarn.
Place waste yarn inside gold yarn feeder and crank out 5-10 rows.

Step 4: Cast Off
Cut yarn and throw tail in the center of your Addi.
Crank out 2 rows without yarn. Your tube will fall off the needles.

Step 5: Closing Yarn Tube
Sew each end closed using your 5mm crochet hook.
Single crochet a total of 23 times to close your tube. 23 times ensures you did not miss stitches.


Step 6: Sewing the “x”
Grab each end and pinch them together.
Slide them halfway together in an alternating pattern. Sew ends together.

Take the open holes and fold them over the part you just sewed together and sew these ends together.



Step 7:
Hide your tails within your headband by inserting your yarn needle through the first layer of your headband.

Congratulations, you just made an “x” closure headband!
