Crochet Headband Pattern – Free

Crochet Lattice Headband Pattern

I received a lovely comment today from “my biggest fan, Stephanie” and was so inspired, I pulled out the hooks and made a crochet pattern.  Not only did I make a new pattern, but I was feeling so motivated, I also created a video showing how to make the headband. Please forgive my post-workday hair.

The pattern in itself is not complicated, but it can be a bit confusing to understand.  Also, I believe I say “interwined” in the video which I am almost 100% positive is not a word in the English language.  Oh well, ha, I can’t be bothered with silly things like pronunciation while I’m crocheting!

This headband creates a really unique looking pattern without any effort.  If you can make a chain, know how to slip stitch, and can count, you can crochet this little guy.  I grabbed a skein of yarn, found my crochet hooks, and 5 minutes later this little guy was born.  Enjoy!

Crochet Headband Pattern

Materials:  Size H (5.0mm) crochet hook and a few yards of worsted weight yarn


Chain 25

Chain 5, work a slip stitch into the top of the 25th chain (first circle made)

Flip your work to make the slip stitch easier to work (optional – watch the video for clarification, I promise it’s not as complicated or advanced as it sounds!)

*Chain 5, slip stitch into previous circle.  Flip work.*

Repeat from * to * around until you have 28 circles.

Chain 25 (creates second headband tie).

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Let me know if these instructions and video helped and if you could actually crochet the headband yourself.  Sometimes, I forget that even though things make sense to me, it doesn’t do any good unless others can understand them, too.  Let me know if you try your hand at making this headband.

    Thank you for posting this, you are so awesome!!
    Great Pattern! Super easy to follow. 🙂

    Question: I have been trying to be cheap and use the red heart brand of yarn from wal-mart but I find it to sometimes be stiff and sort of stick onto itself, if that makes sense. What type of yarn do you suggest that is still fairly cheap?
    Thank you!
    Stephanie 🙂

    You’re welcome, Stephanie, I”m glad you enjoyed it – thanks for the prompting!

    I definitely know what you mean about using Red Heart yarn. My philosophy is if you’re going to spend time and energy making something, it’s worth a few extra bucks to get nice yarn. My go-to “cheap” yarn is Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lionbrand. Jo-Ann Fabrics carries it and often has it on sale for under $3 a skein. It’s worsted weight so it’s perfect for almost any project, but it doesn’t have that stiff, “crunchy” feeling of Red Heart yarn. Plus, it comes in great colors. If I had to pick one type of yarn, Vanna’s choice would probably be my favorite.

    I love this pattern! You make it very easy to follow!! One question though, if I wanted to make it double the width how would I go about that?

    Hello lovely Jayna,

    I stumbled upon your video tutorials today. I hurt my ankle and have been couch bound all week end and have been crocheting and trying new things. Your head band is currently being worn by my 3yo daughter and a couple of flowers are floating around with her. Thanks for keeping me entertained today I really appreciated your company :o) hehe

    Hi Ashley,
    To make the headband double the width, maybe you could chain 10 instead of chaining 5 for each “loop”? Either that, or maybe work a second row of chain-5 loops? I’m not fully sure and would have to play around with it… Let me know if you find out anything!

    Hi Steph! Thanks for your little note. I’m sorry to hear about your injury, but I bet crocheting is a great way to pass the time. That’s awesome that you made this headband for your daughter, I’m sure she loves it.

    If you feel like snapping a pic, I’d love to see how your headband turned out (and showcase it in my Customer Gallery ). Hope you feel better… keep those hooks going!

    Fastest headband ever! I made two in cotton yarn and they look great as a pair. I dont even feel them and they’ve held my bangs all day. Bravo!

    I love this. super easy! I actually made more than 28 loops (I think like 35) to make it so the lattice ended behind my head & had more of the ties to work with!

    Wow! Thank you so much! I had almost given up on crocheting when I saw this on Ravelry! I have been struggling with crocheting for a month now and needed to find a VERY simple pattern to work on for my first project! You have inspired me to make headbands for all my friends! I just moved to Black Mountain NC, and it will be a treat for them to see in the mail!! You have also inspired me to look for more headband patterns!! Thanks!!

    I just whipped this up, and it was super easy! I think I’ll teach it to my beginner crochet friends. Like Ashley, I wanted it to be a bit wider than the pattern indicates. I used 8 chains in each loop, and I liked the spacing very well. I think it isn’t quite twice as big, but 10 chains would probably do the trick. It’s not too gappy, either. One thing I would suggest, though, if you use more chains is that you chain less for the loops on either end. Half the size of the main chain loop is probably perfect.
