That is super cute! I love it with the three different colors :)

Thanks so much! I usually crochet with muted, organic colors, so I stepped out of my box for that one. I think it looks neat, almost like it's 3 headbands stacked on top of each other. :)

I agree, I like the 3D kind of effect. Did you stitch behind the stitches to get that effect? I usually hook into the little "v" at the top of the stitch.

Yes, every other row of hdc is done in the "third loop". When you hdc, if you look at the wrong side of your work, there is another loop just below the "v" where you usually put your hook. This causes the "v" to move to the front of you work and gives you that almost knitted look. In this case, using the different colors, it makes it look stacked. I think it also gives a neat look to a headband with a single color; it almost gives it a ribbed effect.
