Let's Crochet A Simple Hair Barrette!

You can have hair barrettes to match every outfit with this very simple to do crocheted hair barrette cover! Just crochet it up using the easy directions below, then attach it to a metal hair barrette finding (I'll even show you where to get them!)

I love having lots and lots of hair accessories, it's so much fun to have something to go with anything!

The only stitch used is Single Crochet, so this project is easy enough for anyone!

Let's Make The Magic!

Super-Easy Instructions:

With 24K Yarn (or any sport weight or size 3 yarn), chain 20.

SC in 2nd chain and in each chain across. When you reach the corner, work 4 SC in corner. Turn work to left and keep working a SC in each stitch down the bottom size of the chain. When you reach the other end, work 4 SC in last stitch. Join with sl stitch to first SC.

Rounds 2-On

Chain 1, work 2 SC in base of chain 1 just made. Work 1 SC in each SC around, working 2 SC's in each corner stitch. End with a slip stitch in first stitch.

Repeat Round 2 until the barrette cover is your desired size. Mine was 4 rounds. Fasten off, weave in ends.


There are two methods you can use to attach the cover to the barrette finding. The first, and easiest, is to cut about a 6" long piece of your yarn. Put it through the end hole in the barrette finding, run through the barrette cover from bottom to top and then one stitch over from top to bottom, then back through the barrette hole. Tie ends securely, cut and weave them in.

The other method is to use craft wire, using the same method above. If you happen to have craft copper wire lying around, fabulous! You will need to bury your wire ends securely coiling the end back on itself so that it isn't sharp.

A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
