Mom asked me to make her a headband.
When it is too warm to wear a hat, but your ears get cold, then a headband might be what you need too. It is double layered for maximum warmth and to add shelter from the wind.
The headband pattern can easily be altered to fit any head size or to fit any yarn. If you want a sporty lighter version, you can stop working after the first layer is done, cut the yarn and tie off.
You will need to know chain, single crochet and how to do the Tunisian Top Stitch Rib. The Rib is made by alternating two rows of Top Stitches and two rows of Reversed Top Stitches. (Tutorial links on page 3)
The pattern is written in US terms.
