@JaneEK My reply might be a bit late, but this project is a Red Heart original. You can find it either by searching the free patterns in Red Heart Boutique Midnight yarn (pattern# LW3822), or using the direct web page http// == het-headband#. I'm not sure why All Free Crochet doesn't just use Red Heart's link. However, I know from personal experience that Red Heart has a bad habit of changing the pattern name, number, and the page's web address, after an un-established period of time. This sometimes makes it difficult to locate the pattern at a later date. It's why I save them in a PDF to my computer. It could also be AFC's reason for not linking the Red Heart page. Keep calm and crochet on! - Lori

This seems like it should be an easy project, but these instructions leave something to be desired. There is a nice photo of the front of the headband which includes how the cinching band should be positioned. But for the back of the headband, where the buttons and loops are fastened, there is only a small photonot large enough to provide the necessary detail. How can this be addressed?

@JaneEK See my reply above ... Also, I have attached to this pattern a photo from Red Heart's pattern that shows the Headband from the "Rearview". If AFC approves it, it should show up momentarily. Cheers! - Lori

Please don't take this comment the wrong way, but the lady in this picture has beautiful features, like Kate Middleton's picture! Am I the only one who noticed her pretty face? This is a very comfortable looking headband. The colors are very nice. Thank you for the pattern. I love to crochet and this is my new project.
