Crochet Headband Pattern
First of all, isn't this adorable? I'm very proud of my creation! I've crocheted many headbands from various patterns but I wrote this one myself. It's a collaboration of my favorite stitches and looks. This headband is super easy and can be made in about 30 minutes.
Bear with me because this is the first time I've attempted to "write" a pattern. Here we go...
I used an "H/8" hook - 5.00mm
I used a polyester yarn
FIRST - FORM THE BAND...
1SC 1DC in second ch from hook,
*skip next chain, 1SC 1DC in next ch, rep from* to end of row,
ch 1 turn.
*skip next stitch,
1 SC 1 DC in next stitch,
rep from * to end of row,
ch 1 turn.
Repeat row 2 until work measures 19" from the beginning.
(you may have to adjust according to your head size
but just remember to make it small and tight because most yarn stretches.)
My Tip - make this headband WAY TOO SMALL and it will fit just right!
Slip stitch beginning and ending edges together and fasten off.
SECOND - MAKE THE FLOWER...
Chain 6, slip stitch into first chain to form a ring.
1 ch, work 15 SC into ring,
slip stitch into first SC
*IF YOU WANT TO USE TWO YARN COLORS, THIS IS WHEN YOU CHANGE YARN
*3ch, YOH, insert hook into next st, you and pull through.
YOH, pull through 2 loops (leaving 2 loops on hook)
YOH, insert hook into next st and pull through.
YOH, pull through two loops,
YOH and pull through all 3 loops.
Slip stitch into next SC*
Repeat from *to* 4 times, making 5 petals.
Slip stitch into last SC
LAST STEP - attach flower to headband using a yarn needle and yarn
Here are some variations using different yarn colors and a couple of headbands without flowers...
