There’s benefits to having longer hair and I wouldn’t trade mine, but in the warm weather? It’s absolutely no fun to have it hanging in your face. To combat these stray locks, I came up with the Button Up Single Crochet Headband and it free pattern, you’re going to love it!
Now, I bet you’re already guessing that this headband is going to be made using a single crochet stitch, right?
The name kind of gives it away, doesn’t it? But that’s okay, because it’s perfect – especially for beginners.
My patterns are usually (okay, always) great for beginners and this one is no exception. In fact, you only need to make a chain stitch and then add single crochet rows to it.
Once it’s long enough to wrap around your head, you decrease the length to create a nice, tapered end. You can keep adding rows until it’s the width that you want it to be. Easy peasy, right?
To finish off the crochet headband, select a button that’s a fairly nice size and use it decorate the end.
I think a bigger button looks better and adds some splash to the headband, but it’s okay to use whatever you have on hand. If you didn’t want to use a button, you could always add a flower applique to it.
I like using cotton yarn for this because it’s more breathable than acrylic, but I’ve found that it has a lot more stretch and give. So, make your stitches tighter to help the headband hold its shape. You can use a thicker yarn, of course, but I didn’t want my head to get all sweaty from wearing the headband. Kind of defeats the purpose, you know?
