Beaded Beauty Paisley Headband
This simple Queen Anne’s Lace Headband uses a method I discovered on the blog My Hobby Is Crochet. Kinga’s Thread Headband uses an elastic hair tie to make her headband stretchy.
My Queen Anne’s lace is just a little different than some of the other patterns I have found. I start my beginning motif with 16dc instead of 14. I also tend to do the chains differently. Instead of chain 4 or chain 3 I like to add beads or do picots. On this pattern I decided to add beads, on my other pattern Crowned Glory, I used picots.
There are 3 sizes available: baby, child and adult.

Crochet Thread/lace weight – I used Bernat Handicrafter
2.75mm (C) hook
seed beads (42 for the headband part, as many as you want for the ties)(optional, see below for modifications)
elastic hair tie (I used the smaller children’s size from Goody)
needle for finishing
collapsible beading needle (optional)
Abbreviations and Stitches Used:
mc/r- magic circle/ring (watch this video tutorial)
sl st- slip stitch
insert hook into stitch or space, yarn over and pull through stitch, (two loops on hook), pull loop closest to hook through other loop
sc- single crochet
nsert hook into stitch or space, yarn over and pull through stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook

If you don’t have beads you can ch3 or ch4 in ever beaded space instead or you can picot in the beaded spaces. I used picots in my Crowned Glory headband
You can add or subtract as many motifs as you wish, just be sure to adjust the chains for band accordingly
