Free Crochet Headband Pattern: Black Lace

Updated on March 12, 2013

The big problem with crochet headbands is that they are never stretchy enough. And if the pattern is based around providing that stretch, they end up looking ugly and then what was the point anyway?

What you want is a beautiful crochet headband that doesn't make any allowances for stretch, but happens to stretch anyway.

How do you do this? Well what I like to do is simple. Just join in a scrunchie at the beginning and end, by crocheting around it. See below.

Crochet it right into the headband.

So without further rambling about stretch, here is my

      OMG this is awesome. I never thought of using a hair tie in a crocheted headband like this. Great idea, I'll be trying this when I get home from work. Voted up, and pinned. Thanks!
