Crochet Headbands For Babies

Can you believe this is the first crochet headband for women that I’ve ever made? I tend to wear a lot of scarves in my hair, so I’m not sure why I never translated this cool boho-meets-vintage vibe into crochet. I have made a few crochet headbands for babies though and you can get those free patterns by clicking on the names right below these photos.

A Summer Crochet Headband You Can Whip Up Fast

So many of us makers spend time on projects that are (sometimes painstakingly!) crafted over the course of weeks or months. Well, this summer crochet headband is not going to be one of those projects! I personally just need something I can start and finish in one day once in a while and this the the perfect quick gratification crochet accessory.

Whether you’re a vintage-loving gal or boho queen, this summer crochet knot headband will let you skip a shampoo and look gorgeous doing it. Made with LB Collection Cotton Jeans yarn.

Vintage Headband or Boho Headband–You Decide

When I set out to make this, I wanted something that could be worn around the crown of your head in a more vintage style, but that could also be pulled toward your forehead for a bohemian style. You can wear this headband either way you choose! (And if you’re a free spirited bohemian, or at least you dress like one, you can find all my free boho crochet patterns here.)

This boho crochet knot headband pattern is perfect for an adorable summer look. Free pattern and tutorial. Lion Brand LB Collection Cotton Jeans yarn is a perfect DK weight yarn for summer crochet projects!

A New Perfectly Delicate Cotton Yarn

I’ve been a big fan of Lion Brand’s Jeans yarn since they released it last year. It’s extremely soft and drapy and it’s what I used in the Stonewash Shrug and Navajo Blanket Shrug. So I was really excited when Lion Brand released a new version of Jeans that is 100% cotton! The colors are just as authentic as the original version, but because this is cotton, it has an almost matte, desaturated look that feels sophisticated and timeless. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more free patterns made with it around here because I love it! You can check out more of the beautiful cotton colors here.

For this free pattern, the LB Collection Cotton Jeans and a fairly small hook combine for a summer crochet headband without a lot of stretch that looks decidedly “un-winter-y.”

Cut yarn leaving a 10” tail and pull through last loop on hook to fasten off.

Tie headband using a square knot taking care not to twist. Use tapestry needle and tails from initial chain and fastening off to tack points down to headband if desired. (Keep in mind that headband will stretch a bit once on your head, so sew points accordingly if desired.)

    Between rows 34 and 35 the stitch count changed from 11 to 12 without any additional increases. Possibly a mistake?
