Red face Threading Ribbon Thru Waffle/Crochet Headbands

Hey everyone! I'm trying to weave ribbon through the crochet-like or waffle style headbands to add a little something extra to them. However, I can't figure out what to do at the end of the weaving, b/c I can't stretch the headband, unless the ribbon loosens all around the band. Does this make sense? Is this how it's supposed to be, or am I doing something wrong?

it's going to look funny once you let go, lol! You have to have some slack in the ribbon in order for it fit once you put it on. Once it is on, it will look fine. If you are going to sell it and need to take a pic, just clip the extra ribbon behind the beanie with an alligator clip or something to hold it while you take the pic.

I hope that is the answer you were looking for!

I thought the same thing when I made one. Wasn't quite sure how much slack I should put in....how much did you end up using?

gosh, I don't remember because I did it for a winter beanie (not that it still doesn't feel like winter here!) but it was a least an inch or two or more. (That wasn't very helpful, but I just don't remember!)
