Sizes include newborn, baby, toddler, child, teen and adult. | MakeAndDoCrew.comWhen I was beginning to plan this pattern, I knew I wanted to make something that would be casual enough for everyday wear but fancy enough to serve as a flower girl or bridesmaid accessory.

Sizes include newborn, baby, toddler, child, teen and adult. | MakeAndDoCrew.comI happened across Bethany’s Simple Chevron Headband and I knew that the way she used the chevron pattern would make a perfect foundation for all the flowers I was crocheting.

Sizes include newborn, baby, toddler, child, teen and adult. | MakeAndDoCrew.comFor this headband, I added a bit of variation to Bethany’s basic chevron stitch by crocheting only the back loops in every fourth row. This created a little extra visual interest and a nice monochromatic repeating pattern.

Sizes include newborn, baby, toddler, child, teen and adult. | MakeAndDoCrew.comSince gauge isn’t very important with this headband pattern, you can really use any yarn you like. I opted for a variety of fingering and sport weight cotton yarns because I wanted a more delicate look. You could use worsted weight yarn and a larger hook though if you’d like an overall bulkier headband (or ear warmer for the Winter).

Sizes include newborn, baby, toddler, child, teen and adult. | MakeAndDoCrew.comIf you’re crocheting this pattern for a baby or toddler, you’ll definitely want to use small bit of elastic in the back so the headband can grow with the recipient. (For reference, this headband fits both my 10-month-old and my 3-year-old. Add elastic to make your hard work pay off for longer!)

If you’re making this headband for an adult, you could opt to make the band the exact size of their head and skip the elastic all together.

    This is so pretty and is on my “to make” list. I still haven’t had time to make the Easter bunny hat but I will let you know as soon as I do. Hope you are having a great spring and some good weather where you are!

    Thanks for the free headband pattern! It is perfect for a Colorado “spring” when we are still getting snow in May, but have a forecast of 75 degrees next week. The yarn says “cozy” but the bright flowers yell “springtime!”

        Hi Jess, I live that little bunny hat and I filled out the info and even got an email but no matter what I do it brings me right back to here telling me to fill out the box to get the instructions. Something is a muk because I’ve noticed I’m not the only one. Please could you put a link somewhere else so we could get the directions. Thank you.
        Yes I 🙎 the password and did EVERYTHING IT SAID TO DO! But it won’t work

    Hello Jess,
    Beautiful headband! I have a question, about the band.
    You described that you have to repeat row 1-4, but i can’t get it right.
    Do you mean: sc in every stitch? So i get 9 at the end.
    I hope you will understand what i mean, because i’m dutch 😉

      Hey Anouk!

      Hello from the US 🙂 I’m not sure I understand your question, so please feel free to ask for more clarification! I went back to review the pattern and I edited it a bit to hopefully make it more clear. I misstated that you should be repeating the first row. The first row just sets things up and then you should repeat rows 2-5 (which is what I just added to the pattern to clarify things–hopefully!) Please let me know if this makes sense to you. I appreciate you being my pattern reading helper!

      Happy crocheting!

      Hey Carol,

      Thanks for asking. The way that I make money to cover the costs of the site is by running ads and people visiting the site to see those ads. No visitors = no money to cover the costs. But I totally understand why you want to print patterns instead of sit by your computer to crochet, so I’m in the process of creating printable pdfs for my patterns that you’ll be able to download for a very small fee. In the mean time, please feel free to copy and paste the pattern portion of this post into an Microsoft Word file (or any text editor or email would work) and print it from there. I really appreciate your considerate question.

      Happy crocheting!

      Thanks, Afeefa! I just folded the edge of the elastic over so that it wouldn’t fray and then used a regular sewing needle and thread to whip stitch the elastic onto the crochet headband piece.

      Hope that makes sense! Happy crocheting!

        Quick question, do you include the 2 inches of elastic into your final headband length? So if you suggest making the band 11-12 inches, are you including the elastic in that length?

          Hey Julie,

          That should be the final size. So you could crochet a piece about 9-10″ long and add a bit of elastic.

          Happy crocheting!
