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 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.
