Headband: G hook / worsted weight

Single crochet around band. This is really up to you. Whatever you find aesthetically pleasing. You can make it so the elastic shows through or put enough stitches around to make sure all the elastic is covered when it is on your head. The only danger with this is that if you put too many you could stretch out the headband and it will fall off your head so be mindful of this.

If you find any errors in my pattern, please let me know so that I can fix it.

This is an original pattern by me. I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to give away, sell or alter this pattern. It is free to you. Credit for the creation of this pattern is appreciated, but if you can't do that when asked just be honest and say you stole it from some chick on the internets. :D


  1. Cool pattern!

    I love how you took pictures of yarn and created your background! Awesome!

  2. I am not that tech savvy
    why can not a pattern be print instead going to PDF file and no way of getting it print to use. Can not do thing a like.
