Chunky Criss-Cross Headband Crochet Pattern

I've always believed that accessories and clothing play equally important roles in creating an outfit that expresses one's individuality. 

An accessory can be a beautiful bag, a summery sun hat or even a chunky headband... When it comes to accessories the list goes on and on. In other words, your imagination is the limit! 
So for a girl who loves fairytales and all forms of creativity, it's no wonder I'm obsessed with them!

This headband below just so happens to be the latest addition to my ever growing collection. With winter being less than a week away (In Australia), I'm hoping this headband's lovely burst of colour will help combat any gloom that tends to tag along with the colder months.

  1. I love this pattern and am anxious to get started. After reading the pattern, I do have one question about the second strip. When you attach the yarn to the first strip, do you start with 10 chains again?
