It’s spa time! Welcome back to the 2021 Fiber Flux Summer Crochet Along…yippee! We are working an amazing series of projects this time…the Summer Spa Getaway CAL! Each week we’ll make a different spa item (everything is listed below on the schedule) and at the end, you’ll have a beautiful collection of spa themed crochet items that you can use for self-care or lovely gifts too! This series is easy and fun…meant to be a relaxing, easy going summer project, all part of our spa theme!
Today we’re working on a spa headband, a gorgeous closed shell stitch headband that can be used for keeping the hair off of the face with creams, masks, etc. Or, simply wear it as a fashion statement too…it’s that pretty!
Want a little help? There’s a full video tutorial below too!

- H (5.0 mm) crochet hook
- Cotton dishcloth yarn of your choice, I used 24/7 Cotton yarn from Lion Brand Yarn in “Lilac”
- Tapestry needle
- Tape measure
- 2 inches wide
- 20 inch circumference
Ch 13 (multiple of 6+1)
Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc. *Skip two ch then work a sc in the next ch. skip 2 ch and in the next ch, work 4 dc. There will be 3 ch left on the row. Skip the next two ch, and in the very last ch, work a sc.
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work 2 dc in the sc from the previous row. *Work a sc in the center space of the fan from the previous row (area in between the posts right in the center). Work 4 dc in the sc in between the next two fans. Work a sc in the turning chain space to finish the row.
Repeat row 2 until the piece is approximately 20 inches long. Be sure to save about 18-24 inches of yarn to work the seam (see below).
Do not fasten off and sandwich the two ends together. Work a slip stitch seam into both layers all the way across (see the video if you need to see the seam worked + a few tips too).
Weave in any ends that remain.
