GAUGE:
19 single crochet = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
STRIPE SEQUENCE Work *(4 rows with purple, 2 rows with emerald) twice, (4 rows with purple, 2 rows with pea green) twice, (4 rows with purple, 2 rows with light blue) twice, (4 rows with dark blue, 2 rows with hot pink) twice, (4 rows with dark blue, 2 rows with sparkling peach) twice, (4 rows with dark blue, 2 rows with red) twice; repeat from * for Stripe Sequence.

NOTES:
1.

You will be changing yarn colors when making the Headwrap.

The color sections consist of stripes that alternate 2 colors.

When you're working each of these sections, you don't need to cut the yarn between stripes, just carry the color you aren't using along the side edge of the Headwrap.

2.

When you change color in crochet, work the last stitch of the old color to the last yarn over.

Yarn over with the new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the stitch.
