    I think I see the issue with the sizing. Above, it states that the yarn used is “medium roving”, but in fact it is not a medium/4 weight yarn. This is a bulky/5 weight yarn, so your typical worsted will not work to get the sizing you want. You need to use the exact yarn noted on material list or another bulky/5 weight yarn. I hope this helps!

  • Hi Brittany, is there a gauge for this pattern? Did I miss it somewhere? I had to add more rows. So now I’m wondering if my width is correct since I had to add more length. I’m giving this away and my head is smaller than most, so I can’t go by my measurements. Thank you.

    • Hi Raylene! I’m working through edits on this pattern. It seems that a lot of people are struggling with the sizing so I am making another one and going through each step to find any errors (if any). In my latest version, I’ll have the gauge info. What yarn are you using for yours?

  • BellaOsa

    Made this headband. Love, love, loved it!
    Had to add extra rows bc it was for an adult. I also made hand warmers to match. The set is too cute. Thanks for sharing.

  • Kristi

    Yes, I noticed as well that the written pattern includes an extra row of sc, row 9. In the video, the first woven stitch row starts after row 8. If you work row 9, you end up with an uneven number of sc. None the less, this is still a great pattern. Thank y o u for the work you put in creating this pattern and making it available to us. Happy crocheting 🙂

  • Sam

    Hello. I was wondering if you knew that the written pattern does not match the video. Might want to update the written portion.

  • I haven’t had any previous complaints about this. Is it still occurring? If so, what browser are you using? Sometimes viewing through a mobile device may cause problems with the page resizing.

    Brittany, I made the Buttoned Up Headband for my daughter who is in college and she loved it! I receive your emails and have a file in my computer for all of them except for this one. I tried to share this to my email address 3 times and each time I did I got a message that it had completed and emailed but I’m not receiving the email on my end. Could you please email to me the Buttoned Up Headband pattern and tutorial so that I may save it in my email file? Maybe if you email it to me I’ll get it. I would appreciate, thank you.

    • The red yarn was a mill end find at Joann’s. It’s a medium weight roving style yarn. If you’re unfamiliar with mill end bags, they are 1 lb bags of yarny goodness for $7… only problem is you don’t know what kind of yarn it is. Vickie Howell Sheepish would be a great yarn choice for this headband and it’s very easy to come by!

  • Anne

    Tried your headband stitch day before yesterday and two headbands later I am now using it to make a pair of bedsocks – lovely and warm stitch. Thanks for the video tutorial, I would never have mastered it without the tutorial!

  • Anika

    Lovely pattern. I have made two with different types of worsted weight yarn, but both look barely big enough for an infant. From row one to row 49, it is 13 inches. Does this sound correct? I am going to try a bigger hook next. Instructions are great, very easy and the video tutorial was well done.

    • That definitely sounds incorrect! Are you using a size 5mm hook? Mine measure around 28″ when it’s buttoned up and fits my head which is around 22″ circumference.

      • Anika

        Yes. I tried with Boye H (5mm) and Bates (5mm) both come out much smaller. I made the first two with the Boye hook using Caron and Vanna’s Yarn. I made a third with Vanna’s with the Bates hook. I am going to use an I hook next. The pattern works great as it is. It most likely my own tension issues

    Hi Brittany
    Thank you for another beautiful pattern. I really enjoy your videos. You have a very pleasant voice that soothes the nerves of one learning a new stitch.
