Mobius headwrap pattern

Stitches to know-

Hdc-half double crochet 

FPDC-front post double crochet  

BPDC-back post double crochet

LHdc-Long half double crochet

I used Red Hart WW yarn with an I hook

Ch 60 and join

Row 1) Turn chain slightly so the "bump" of the chain is showing ontop, ch1, Hdc in each bump of the chain.  Do not join.  (see photo below)

When you get to the top of the hdc, you will turn it toward you 180 degrees so the first hdc is upside-down and work hdc in each chain on the reverse side.  (This will put the natural twist in the headwrap).

Row 2) Ch 2, FPDC (YO, insert hook in on right side of previous hdc around to the left side of hdc -your hook should be "behind" the hdc stitch- YO, pull through 2 loops, YO pull through last 2 loops).  FPDC around each hdc until you reach the ch2, then join.

Row 3) Turn work, ch2, Lhdc (YO, insert hook in top of previous hdc, YO and pull through all 3 loops).  Lhdc in each stitch around and join beg ch 2.

Row 4-7) repeat rows 2 & 3.

I do give permission make and sell what you make as long as you give me credit for the pattern.  Thank you, Alicia from Hooked2yarn @2013

Hi, Alicia! First of all thank you for sharing your pattern! It is such a cute headwrap and I don?t think I could have figured out how to get it to twist!

I?m stuck on row 3?I have two questions that I think will help me. Can you please clarify what ?previous hdc? means? And since I?m new to the Lhdc stitch and couldn?t find it anywhere else on the internet I?m wondering if you meant (YO, insert hook in top of previous hdc, ?YO and pull through stitch?, YO and pull through all 3 loops)?

Thank you again for the pattern!!

Jamie, I'm glad you are enjoying the pattern so far.

To answer your question, Yes. Its hard to see in the last picture but YO and insert hook (see where the black finger & my thumb are pointing) that is where you will insert your hook, then finish your half double like you normally would. I hope this helped answer your question.

hmm...it's still not looking quite right. Maybe I'm joining in the wrong place? I don't know. I'll wait until others on Ravelry have a chance to try it and see what they say...because I'm pretty sure it's me! :)

Thank you for your help!

Do you have a picture you can e-mail me [email protected] ? The twisty thing is kinda crazy :) You can do it. Maybe put it down for a bit and pick it back up.

I decided to rework this, & found a simple error but it might be why its not working out. Row 3, turn your work, then start working the Lhd. Now you should be able to see the stitch from previous round you are supposed to hdc into. Im sorry, I hope this helps.
