Custom Fit Reversible Headband & Scarf Featuring My New Windowpane Stitch!!

This is a quick and fun project to crochet, and the finished items are WARM! We experience real cold here in the "frozen North" of Omaha, and being warm is a real priority!

This season I've been seeing turquoise with red everywhere I go! I love the look so that's what I chose for this set. I chose to use Riot Eyelash Sparkle in the colorway "Magicstone Spark." I combined it with Enchantment sequin yarn in red. Both yarns are available at

Choose any two contrasting yarns you wish to make your own magical creation!

I created the "Windowpane Stitch" to make an easier version of the double crochet X stitch. It uses only Single Crochet and chain stitches, making this project easy enough for a confident beginner.

Complete directions are below along with learn to crochet tutorials on YouTube.

I've given made-to-custom-fit directions. You make the scarf simply by increasing the amount of the foundation chain to the length you wish.

The pattern worked in the yarns indicated creates a headband or scarf four inches wide. Plenty of room to keep your ears warm!

Happy crocheting!

1 skein Enchantment sequin yarn

Crochet hook size H or your preferred

A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

I've used every manner of yarn tote out there, and this is by far the best I've tried! I own this one in a Raspberry color. It weighs virtually nothing. It has two convenient yarn pull-throughs on top, and there's a separate detachable zipper tote you can stash your hooks, cash, ID, etc. in. Perfect for a day of crocheting on the go! Right now mine is filled with 10 large balls of crochet thread! It holds 6-8 skeins of yarn easily as well. I just can't say enough about it! I know one thing, I'm planning to buy it in all the other colors!

Please do not distribute this pattern in any manner internet, email, etc. You may provide a link to this page instead. You may sell items created from this pattern.


With Riot Sparkle - Make a chain the measurement of your head less two chains (You want it to stretch a bit to be snug). Best way is to measure a headband that fits you. Join to first chain, making sure you do not twist the chain.

Round 1

SC in each chain around. Join with sl st to first SC. Ch 1, turn.

Rounds 2 & 3

SC in each SC around. Join with sl st to first SC. At end of round 3, fasten off and weave in end.

Rounds 4, 5 & 6

(Attach Enchantment yarn anywhere on headband edge.) Ch 1, then work a SC in each SC around. Ch 1, turn. At end of round 6, fasten off and weave in end.

Round 7

(Attach Riot Sparkle in any stitch on headband edge). Ch 1, SC in next stitch. Ch 5, go down and to left as shown in photo and SC through one of the Riot Sparkle stitches. Ch 3, skip several SC's as shown in photo, SC in next stitch on top edge. Continue in this manner all the way around. End with ch 3, sl st in first SC. Ch 1, do not turn.

Rounds 8, 9 & 10

SC in each SC around. Join with sl st to first SC. Ch 1, turn. At end of round 10, fasten off and weave in end.

Voila! You have a reversible headband!


You can use this pattern to make a long straight scarf by increasing the amount of chains to the length of scarf desired. Your rounds will become "rows" instead.

To make a Mobius/Infinity Scarf, measure from the back of your neck to where you want the scarf to end on your body. Double this measurement. When you make your starting chain, twist the chain once then join with sl st to first chain.

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!

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

      Looks like a good pattern for even someone, like me, whose crochet skills are very rudimentary. Nice job!
