There are two versions of this design, a simple one with just the band without the shells on the edges, or the version you see on the above photo, with a scallop made of little shells.
I used standard cotton crochet thread and a size 8 hook (US sizes, would be 1,5mm). Checking your gauge is not necessary, just make the band as long as you like, that is a bit shorter than your neck (or head) circumference.
I use US crochet terms:
