Pearl Beaded Headband
Designed by Julie A Bolduc
This beaded, crocheted headband is made by working in rows and then the sides of the rows are stitched together to form a long tube which is then slipped over a plain white plastic head band. This could be a beautiful part of a bride's veil!

String all beads onto thread
ROW 1: Ch12. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch1, turn.
ROW 2: Sc in each of the first 3 sc. Insert hook in next st, bring up a bead, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook, 5 times. Sc in each of the last 3 sc. Ch1, turn.
ROW 3: Sc in each st across. Ch1, turn.
ROW 4-163: Repeat Rows 2 &3. Fasten off, leaving a 1 yard length of thread for finishing. Weave other end into back of work.
Fold the 2 sides together to meet in the center at the end where you have your finishing thread, use a lacing stitch to sew this end flat to close one end of the long tube you are about to make. Using a lacing stitch, stitch the sides together at the end of each row to form a long thin tube. Slip the headband into the tube so the beads are on the top. Stitch the other end closed. Weave end in.
NOTE: I found that this thread is actually thinner than size 10 crochet thread. It is actually more like size 20 thread. I bought it from Herrschners. The plastic head band and the pearls were purchased from Sunshine Crafts.
