I am so excited to share with you this crochet headband. I came up with the pattern myself and I hope you like it’s versatility as much as I do. Additionally, I explain how to make little flowers that fit right over the button in the Crochet Flowers Tutorial.
So let’s get started!
Materials You Will Need:
Yarn, Scissors, Crochet Hook, Button (two holes), Yarn Sewing Needle
To be resourceful I usually pick up yarn at garage sales. I am able to pick up rolls for 25 cents that way, and most of the time it is really nice! I am a huge fan of saving money whenever I can. I picked this yarn because it was a little stiffer and wouldn’t stretch as much, causing the headband to reshape after a few minutes of wearing it. It’s also a thinner yarn, and I prefer a more dainty look. When you are picking the yarn for your project keep in mind that the larger the thickness, the thicker your headband will be and the larger the button holes will be (requiring larger button).
This yarn called for a F size crochet hook, so that’s what I used.
Row 1: I started by making a chain (ch) of 60. I knew to do this many because I measured it against my daughter’s head as I went. You can go a little larger if you like, because the entire length of the headband is made up of button holes. If you are using an F hook 60 ch should make a decent sized headband for a 6 month old baby.
Row 2: Once you have your chain you will skip one ch and and make a double crochet into the back of the ch stitch so that the top and bottom of the headband look the same. Repeat until 1 ch is remaining. Single chain in the last ch. Cut the yarn and tie the ends together.
Weave the ends back into your piece and tie them around the center of the third stitch.
Take one end of the yarn and thread it into your button then back down. Tie the end to the other string, and trim the excess. This is where using a button with only two holes comes in handy. It’s hard enough threading the button with yarn, but doing it more than twice and overlapping makes it much more challenging.
Try it on and admire your newly made crochet headband! I love yarn projects, they have that rustic country look that I adore. I hope you love your crochet headband as much as Winnie does!
