The headband is started with FSC and joined to the first stitch to make a ring. The band is then made in rounds, joined to the first stitch of the same row with a slip stitch. The stitches used include sc, dc, ch, and fpdc. 

The band measures 4.5” , but it can be made as wide as desired. The front of the band is folded, sewn together and finished off with the placement of a button. With this band, the button used is 1” wide. You can use any size of button or wear without a button if you desire.
