How do you crochet a cable headband like this?

This easy cable headband is worked in rows so you do not need to worry about rounds and missing stitches.

The cable look is obtained by chain loops you work on each second row and stitch them together in the last row.

I was a bit worried the beauty of this simple cable stitch will not pop up using a self stripped yarn, but it came out amazing!
