Crocheted Headbands

Crocheted headbands are a great accessory to wear outside. They keep your head and ears warm, are easy to wash and care for, and can look either artistically modern or insanely cute. Crocheted headbands look very different this year, than from years before. Have you seen them in the stores? They are much wider, covering a large portion of the head when worn over the ears. The ones I've seen are soft, warm, and would be comfortable to wear on chilly days. But most importantly, they look incredibly cute and chic-looking. They come in all colors and styles, but my favorites are the ones with the large crocheted flowers on them. These have inspired so much, that I've made a few of my own.

My Own Crocheted Headbands with Flowers


Making Your Own Crocheted Headbands

Making your own crocheted headband is very easy compared to other crochet projects. In fact, making a crocheted headband would be an excellent first crochet project, as it will not take very long to make, it will cost very little, and you will be able to show it off by wearing it within a couple of hours. You will only need one skein of yarn and will probably not use all of it. Usually a simple single crochet (SC) or double crochet (DC) is used throughout the headband, which are very easy to perform. Below I have searched and found the best free crocheted headband patterns I could find. I have made several of them and recommend them. I like to add crocheted flowers to my headbands. My flowers are completely made up and are not from a pattern. I look at pictures and then create the flower I want using my imagination. However, if this if you would like to follow a pattern, I have found a few good flower patterns as well! Happy headbanding!

Tips for Success in Making a Crocheted Headband

  • After crocheting any headband, always border the sides with at least one row of single crochet stitches. This will give the edges a smooth and finished look.
  • Use soft yarn or sew fleece to the underside of the headband, so that it will feel comfortable against your head, and not give an itchy feeling.
  • When attaching a flower, use a wide-hole needle, and the same yarn you made the flower with. Attach each out petal with one stitch, so that pieces do not curl up. Use a few stitches in the center part of the flower as well.
  • Before attaching ends of headband, try it on to be sure it fits your head. There will be some stretch to the headband, allowing it to fit snuggly and comfortably on your head and over your ears.
  • When creating flowers, create 3 in diminishing sizes, and attach them one on top of the other, to create a three-dimensional effect.
  • Remember, yarn can be purchased from online sources such as Amazon and Herrschner's, usually at lower prices than what you will get at local stores. However, certain brands go on sale, allowing you to save anywhere from 25% to 50% often in local craft stores, such as Michael's.

      These are so cute! Of course I cannot crochet to save my life. Maybe one day I will teach myself. I love the multi-colored flowers. Pinned, up and awesome.

      Thanks for reading randomcreative and RTalloni! My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was a teenager. It is a fond memory I have of her and crocheting makes me think of her often. RTalloni, I hope you have fun with this and the resources are helpful. Happy crocheting!

      Thanks for reading Lady Wolfs and Wonder wool. When I lived in Michigan, everyone wore hats, headbands, and scarves around their heads, as it was super cold. Even though I am now in a warmer climate, the habit has stuck with me and I wear them on cool days to stay extra warm. I am also a crochet addict, always looking for something fun to make!

      I've always liked headbands, though I never thought about having one for cooler weather. That's a great idea for anyone that likes to crochet. I don't know how, but the headband does look warm and comfortable. Nice hub. Thank you for sharing.

      Voted up!
