The song Ophelia of The Band was included in their Northern Lights – Southern Cross 1975 album. With a style close to New Orleans sound and a character that could certainly be an analogy to Shakespeare’s Ophelia, possibly driven mad by a lover.
Robbie Robertson, lead guitar and main songwriter of The Band, said that was a song that could have been written in the 1930’s, that loves when he writes music that completely ignores time.

Level 3 – intermediate
If you are looking for a new challenge, these projects are just for you! These patterns use a variety of crochet techniques and stitch combinations. They are more demanding and require more detail and concentration along with advanced shaping and stitching.
Stitches and Techniques used (U.S. terminology)
-Chain (abbrev. ch)
YO and pull through loop on hook.
-Slip stitch (abbrev. sl st)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
-Through back loop (abbrev. tbl)
The back loop is furthest away from you.
-Back bump of a chain
Usually you crochet in the right side of the chain. When you turn your chain, you’ll see a small ‘bump’ on the wrong side of each stitch.
It is a technique that consists of crocheting only a part of the stitches in a row, leaving a certain number of stitches (indicated in pattern) without crocheting. These stitches that we left without crocheting will be worked again until we have the same number of stitches as in the initial row. For this, the stitch markers play a fundamental role, since they are of great help to indicate the specific place where we must insert the crochet hook to connect the rows in order to avoid gaps in the fabric.

This pattern is written in US terminology.
Headband is worked flat from side to side, in one piece, going back and forth rows.
To create a knit-like look we will work in slip stitch through the back loop (slst-tbl).
Take care to not work sl sts too tightly.
Finally, we’ll complete the headband with an invisible seam.
