20 Minute Free Crochet Headband Pattern For Beginners

Free Crochet Hairband Pattern 1

I’ve been meaning to post another free pattern for a while to thank all of my subscribers and followers.  My apologies for the long wait, I promise to have a few more for you guys in the coming months!

For all of you mommy’s with young daughters, this pattern is for you!  I was inspired to create a free crochet headband pattern by my daughter Leanna.  Leanna loves having long hair, but with her curls and active lifestyle it can really get out of control.  Like honestly, she looks crazy by the end of the day.   So, to keep her beautiful curls out of her face, I wanted to make a headband that  is stretchy and comfortable.  I used a soft worsted weight yarn so that the hairband can also be pulled over the ears on cooler days!

The Pattern

This pattern is worked in the round.

Join to form a loop using a slip stitch.  Be very careful not to twist the chain as you do the join.

Round 1: CH1 and SC all the way around starting in the first stitch that you joined with the slip stitch.  When you finish the round, count to make sure there are 60 stitches.  Join with a slip stitch in the first stitch of the round.

Round 2: CH 2, *skip first 2 sc, [1DC, CH1, 1DC] in next sc, rep from * to end of round, join to first dc with slip stitch.

Round 3: CH 2, 3 DC in each ch-1 space all the way around, join to first dc with slip stitch.

Round 4: CH 2, *skip first 2 dc, [1DC, CH1, 1DC] in next dc, rep from * to end of round, join to first dc with slip stitch.

  1. Made this for my 6 year old and it came out too big. Super cute pattern though. Any suggestions on how to make it smaller? Her head measured about 21 inches.

    1. Hi Stacey, you could try using a smaller hook. Everyone crochets a bit differently and its possible that your tension was looser. Using a smaller hook would correct that.
