    Checkered Crochet Headband

    I used back loop single crochet stitch, combined with the tapestry crochet technique to create this two-color ribbed headband. While I've...MORE labeled this as an "intermediate" pattern, I do think it's one of the easier tapestry crochet patterns we have available. As far as starter patterns go, this one's noteworthy because it offers you a nice change of pace from making basic afghan squares.
