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.

One Spunky Girl

Chunky Crochet Cowl

One of my favorite things as a business owner is receiving an online order from a friend.  It’s like a little surprise.  Normally when an order comes through from my Etsy store, I get an e-mail listing the item purchased and the buyer’s information.  The information is there and I take it in, but seeing your friend’s name in the “buyer” section comes as a slight shock.

If you sell crochet things, I’m sure you can relate. Most orders from friends tend to come in the form of verbal “suggestions”.  You’re more than willing to crochet things, but when your friends say things like “I’d love a black scarf!” over Friday night dinner, you never know how serious they truly are.

That’s why Emily’s order meant so much to me.  She treats JJCrochet like a real business and is thoughtful in her support.  It’s rare to find a friend like that.

I knew Emily in college and, though in different sororities, we never seemed to notice.  As is clear from the pictures, Emily (affectionately known as “Rexy”),  is just bursting with life.  She brights up rooms with her smile and contagious laugh.  She’s a bright ray of sunshine. Emily is one spunky girl.

Crochet Headband

A couple weeks ago, Emily purchased a ruffle crocheted headband and a summery crochet headband.  Because she is a dear friend, I also included a special gift when I packaged up her items – A red cowl that I knew would look great with her dark hair.

Emily surprised ME the other day by sending an e-mail with beautiful pictures.  I told her I had to share them on my crochet blog.  Thank you, Emily, for being a wonderful friend and for all the joy you’ve brought to me and everyone else in your life. Keep living the dream!
