Pebble Bobbles Headband - Crochet Pattern Review - Rebeckah's Treasures

I pattern tested this for my friend Rebeckah of Rebeckah's Treasures. I am always blown away at her creativity, and the energy and detail she puts into each of her patterns and projects. I had fun testing this pattern out, and didn't want to take off the headband once I was finished. I chose to work it in one of my favorite colors, hoping it would match some new shirts that I recently bought, but the color is just a little darker - just means I need to match some more in other colors :)

Are you a raveler? If so, make sure to favorite this Pebble Bobble Headband and link up your project to it!

Materials I Used:
     - Small Amount of Aunt Lydia's Classic #10 Thread in the Burgundy colorway
     - D3mm Crochet Hook
     - #20 Tapestry Needle for Weaving
     - 4.5mm & H8/5mm Crochet Hooks (optional - for Part 1)
     - Pebble Bobbles Headband, Paid Crochet Pattern from Rebeckah's Treasures

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Artiste #10 Cotton Crochet Thread.

Time Spent:
     I had mine finished in just under an hour. 

     1 7/8" Wide by 14.5" Long (See Notes about Length)


Pattern Notes:
     After working Part 1, I pulled out my H8/5mm hook to shape the tube, then I used my 4.5mm hook to pull the rubber band through. Probably much easier to hook a safety pin around the rubber band and pull through, but because I didn't have one, the hook worked too.

The pattern is very detailed with suggestions for starting stitches. I wanted a thinner headband so I started with 13 single crochet onto the band, which left me with five and four bobbles, respectively. I worked seven repeats plus rows 2, 3 and 4 again for a total of 32 rows to equal 14.5" long (including the band). I did not work mine as long as I should have - I forgot to add in an extra 2.5" for the band. I did not realize this mistake until after I sewed in my ends. It was a little tight at the back of my neck at first, but quickly loosened up. I was surprised how well it stretched to fit, but haven made a few headbands now (other reviews to come), I would make it to 15.5" long (including the band).

At the end, I chained 1 and turned. Then I folded the work as to work across, and I did so as the pattern stated working onto the other side of the band. Once across, I fastened off, and turned my piece so the bobbles were facing on the right side.

Overall, this is a great tutorial chalk full of lots of helpful information and photos, and the pattern is really easy to follow and memorize and produces a beautiful headband. I can't wait to bust out thread from my stash and make a bunch more in other colors!
