---PDF Printable Crochet Pattern with VIDEO TUTORIAL---

This sweet, yet simple headband is quick and easy to crochet! Make it in a lightweight yarn for a feminine summer hair accessory, or make it in a thicker yarn for a chunky winter earwarmer.

This pattern can be worked in any size, at any gauge, with any yarn weight. I recommend using thinner yarn for a spring and summer headband. If you want a thicker, wider, earwarmer headband for the fall and winter, use a thicker yarn. The thicker the yarn you are using, the larger the bow will be. Please choose a hook size that is appropriate for the yarn you are using. The label on your yarn should suggest appropriate hook sizes for the thickness of that yarn. Use a smaller hook for a more dense, structured crocheted fabric, and a larger hook for a looser, floppier fabric.

You will Need:
Yarn of your choice (amount will vary by headband size and thickness of yarn)
Crochet Hook in a size appropriate for the yarn you are using
Measuring Tape
Yarn Needle or Blunt Tapestry Needle
4 Split-ring or Locking Stitch Markers (safety pins will also work)
Piece of Cardboard that is half as long as the head circumference (to tie the headband around if you cannot tie it around the recipient’s head)

This headband is custom fit. If you can, measure the recipient’s head circumference. You will be using this measurement to make the headband the correct length. When instructions tell you to measure the headband, stretch the headband a bit while measuring. This causes the finished headband to be a little smaller than the head, so it stretches a little to comfortably stay on the head. The finished headband can also be adjusted by tying it tighter or looser around the head. If you don’t want the headband to stretch around the head, don’t stretch the headband while measuring. If you cannot measure the recipient’s head, here are the standard head circumference guidelines according to the Craft Yarn Council (

Preemie: 9”-12” (23-30.5 cm)
Baby: 14”-16” (35.5-40.5 cm)
Toddler: 16”-18” (40.5-46 cm)
Child: 18”-20” (45.5-51 cm)
Tween: 20”-22” (51-56 cm)
Woman: 21”-23” (53-58.5 cm)
