Warm and Fast Crochet Headband
This pattern will be made using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn in contrasting colors. This pattern works up extremely fast I think it took me about 40 minutes to make, and it is sooo warm. You can also shorten it to make it for your children to make sure they stay warm! Flowers also look very cute sewn onto this pattern, so do matching buttons. You can customize this any way you want to to make it more unqiue!
Supplies and Abbreviations
2 Skeins of red heart super saver yarn. I used black and purple.
Size K crochet hook (you can go bigger if you need to)
Darning needle for sewing headband together.
HDC- Half double crochet
SC- Single crochet
DC- Double crochet
To begin, with 2 strands of yarn
Row 1- HDC in the second ch from hook and each ch across.
Row 2- Ch 1, SC in each stitch across
Row 3- Ch 1, SC in each stitch across
Row 4- Ch 1, SC in each stitch across
Row 5- Ch 1, HDC in each stitch across
Row 6- Ch 2, DC in each stitch across
Row 7- Ch 1, HDC in each stitch across
Row 8-48- Repeat rows 2-7
Trim your tails at 2-3 inches, you don't want it to be as long as the width of your headband.
Connect each end and line up your stitches, lay your yarn tails across, and whip stitch the ends together with your darning needle. I used black for the stitching so it wouldn't be bulky and it blended in nicely. Remember to whip stitch over the tails of your yarn as you go across so you don't have to weave them in.
Weave in the yarn on your darning needle and tie it off.
You now have a super warm headband to enjoy all winter long or give as a fantastic gift!
Hope you all enjoyed this pattern and happy stitching!
If you do decide to make this pattern for children I do suggest a few things. In the beginning making the ch 11 a ch 9 instead. The rest can be worked the same but I'd cut probably 1-3 of the repeats out to shorten it. Adding flowers or bows would be a great choice as well if you were making this for a child!
