DIY// The Oversized Braided Crochet Headband.

Hello there! I have to say first off, this creation was entirely by accident and I think it's pretty rad how it came together. I love the original idea I had as well and will most likely try to recreate it!
The Ingredients:
Yarn Sewing Needle
Crochet Hook  J/10-6.00MM
Yarn of your choice
Crochet Techniques with abbreviations: 
>>HDC=Half Double Crochet
>> SC= Single Crochet

>>SS=Slip Stitch
You will CH 8
For Row 2, you will DC the entire Row.
For Row 3 to Row 52, you will continue DC. SS the last ST and cut.
Next, for the edges you will SC around the entire piece. You will create this entire process two more times, creating the strips to make 3.
Once, the 3 strips are created. You will combine them at the top, threading the needle with yarn and sewing the ends.
Next, you will braid your strips!
Once more, you will thread your yarn sewing needle and sew the end of the braid to secure it. Once it is secure, you will connect both ends of the braid by sewing them together.
