Crochet Leprechaun Hat Headband

LepHeadband1

I have to give credit to my husband for this one! After I made the Cat in the Hat Headband, he said I should make a St. Patrick’s Day version. An hour later this Crochet Leprechaun Hat Headband was hot off my hook! Pretty much the same tutorial as the Cat in the Hat Headband (see it HERE) but I am posting the updated pattern below.

Materials:
– Bernat Super Value yarn in Green, Black, and Yellow. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Headband (I used Goody brand). Target, Dollar Tree, and Walmart, are a few of the many stores that carry headbands. I used THESE ONES.
– Poly-fil fiber stuffing
– Tapestry Needle
– Hot Glue Gun

Abbreviations:

SC = Single Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease
