Simple Crochet Headband

This headband is so easy to make, and the pattern is almost the same as the necklace one.
I love the hippie style, and this is perfect for spring and summer times!
I write here the pattern for this super easy headband:

Materials:
4.00mm hook
Any Colour Cotton yarn (worsted weight)

Headband:
Ch141
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in the next 29chs (30sc), ch80, sc in the 30th ch from the begin of previous ch loop, and in next 29chs, ch1, turn.
Row 2: Sc in first sc and in next 29 sc, ch 80, sc in the 30sc of the previous row.
Cut yarn and weave in all ends...that's all!
Enjoy your stylish headband!
You can even make it with two or three different colors, by changing it at each end of row.
Hope you'll like it!

Thanks so much for this pattern. It's lovely. :) Made one last night in no time.

I think there may be a typo in the pattern though - is it possible that it should read in Row 1: "...sc in the 80th ch from the begin of the previous ch loop"?

I tried it as is with the 30th chain, but it didn't seem right so I re-did with the 80th chain.

Thanks for posting such beautiful things.

creativeyarn said...

Hey,hi!
Well, yes, I wrote the 30th "from the begin", and maybe isn't so clear..I meant the very start of the beginning ch loop, at the end you will have 30 sc each edge and 80 chs in the middle.
Sorry if it wasn't so clear but english it's not my first language (I'm italian:)), and sometimes I just try to translate what I've thought in my language!!
Thanks so much for your comment, it will be an help for others I think!
Ciao!

Ok, I understand that you have three strands of 80 ch in the middle, this is very clear and very Sheek I might add, and soft. And then I understand that you have 30 on each end, so do you tie this in a know or a bow under your hair, or do you stitch the two ends together? I always make crotcheting complicated. My sister-in-law and myslef are so excited to wear some of these...I have to get it right

creativeyarn said...

Hi Anonymous!
I tie in a knot behind my head the two simple crochet ends!
In this way you can adjust the length of the headband on your head..
Ciao!
Enjoy your headbands!!:)

JoannaBanana said...

Hi, I am trying to make the "Headband with Bow" and as you have said I am not doing Row 2. My problem is that I am a bit confused by your pattern. In end this is what I have:

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y213/Ranev/Photo111.jpg

I have a 30 end then 80 in the middle another 30 and then the long tail that has to be at least 100. Thank you in advance.

creativeyarn said...

Hi Joanna!
After the first 30sc, you have to make FROM THERE the other 80 chains and then, WITHOUT leaving the yarn from your hook, make the other 30sc on the opposite end of the first long beginning chain.
At the end you'll have the two edges with 30sc each, and in the middle two strands of 80 chains each.
Can you figure it out?
Hope so!
If it's still confusing, let me know and I'll make a picture of my headband lying flat so you'll see it done,
ciao,
Marta

JoannaBanana said...

Hi Marta! Thank you sooo much for explaining it to me. It makes perfect sense now and I LOVE my new headband.

Please keep up with the amazing work.

I really like this pattern! It is so simple and quick. I had a question though. I was playing around with putting the flower on the band, and I can't quite figure out how you attatched it. The way I did it, is that I more or less sewed the middle of the flower to all 3 chains. It looks alright like that, but the flower doesn't quite lay down the way yours looks like it is. Could you try and explain how you attatched the flower? Thanks!!

creativeyarn said...

Hi anonymous,
thanks for your comment!
You should sew the middle chain loop along the middle of the flower, and then the other two chain loops along the opposite petals so that the chains are a little separate one from the others and the flower is well fastened on the headband.
Hope it's clear and that it helped you!
Thanks again and all the best!

Hi, would you mind taking a picture of this or the bow headband flat on a table or something. I'm having trouble visualizing it and want to see if I've got it right. Thanks!

I love the idea of this pattern. It probably didn't hurt that the one you made and have photographed is purple :) I am a very very new crocheter and want to add a tip to anybody who may also be new and attempting to make this great project. Make sure you crochet quite tightly. I guess my chains are loose or something because once I finished the 141 chain, I noticed that the headband was long enough for 2 headbands. I stiched the 2nd row just to see if maybe I was misunderstanding but nope, it was me and my looseness. I'm going to pull it all apart and start again, crocheting as tightly as possible.

Thanks for such a quick and cute project :)

Thanks so much for sharing the pattern! I already made one, and I love it :D

Melissa said...

I really love this! It looks so easy to make but just a query. Are your chain stitches real tight? It'd be great if you could reply so THANKS!

creativeyarn said...

Hi Melissa,
yes the chain stitches are quite tight..
have fun!

Melissa said...

Hey I've just completed my headband and I love it!! I'm sorry but how do you weave in the ends? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Hi, i'm a beginner at crochet... I don't understand this bit of your pattern... Sc in the 30th ch from the begin of previous ch loop

Could you help me please? Do i sc in the 30th chain from the beginning 141 chains, or in the 80 chains. Is this supposed to make a loop?

Grazie mille

creativeyarn said...

To the anonymous above:
hi!
You have to sc in the 30th chain from the beginning 141 chain loop to make the second sc block (there's one on each ends and the three chain loops of the headband in the middle!)..
See this example of the pattern's diagram here:

Wow - I love this pattern! I came across it just this morning, whipped out my hook and some yarn, and made myself a lovely new headband to wear today! I've already planned to make more with different colors because it's so easy and the headband is SO CUTE!

Thanks so much for sharing your pattern!!

I love this headband! I just learned to crochet last night (using a book and YouTube), but this was my first creation and the directions were really easy follow.

Thanks!

Kimi said...

Hello. Thank you very much for sharing your pattern. I just made one and I LOVE it! Within 3 minutes of wearing it, I was complimented twice. I made one in Harry Potter colors for the 6th movie coming out tonight. lol. I'll be wearing this a lot. Thanks again! -Kimi

Cara (sn Flop81) said...

Hi! I came across this pattern the other day on Ravelry and I've already made 5 of these headbands, with and without the flowers. I've also made a 2 row band with a smaller flower (like the one you have on the necklace, which is my next project). But I just wanted to thank you for posting these! I've gotten so many compliments and will be making more of these for myself and as gifts for others. The pattern was so easy to follow and these can be made in no time at all! You are extremely creative and have gorgeous/great stuff! Thank you again!! :)

något onödig said...

All of your patterns are so beautiful and elegantly minimalist!

You have definitely inspired me to try them and then maybe try to come up with some stuff of my own.

Thank you!!

Karin said...

Thanks for sharing this. I've already made two in the last few days (three if you count the mini one I made for my daughter). Blogged about it here at madebyk.blogspot.com/..., where I also included a photo of it not on a head. Might help some people visualize it better...

Next, I plan to make the flower and/or bow. Thanks again for putting this all out here!!!

Ciao

Instant gratification headband! I love it!! Thanks for the pattern. I look forward to playing around with it and seeing what else I can come up with.

Louise said...

Help. This look so cool, but I can't even draw out what I'm supposed to do. I'm new to crochet and really want to try this for my granddaughters. Can any one help?

Lauren said...

knowing the short hand for the stitches will get you a long way. Sc is single crochet and Ch is chain stitch. I hope this post helps for those people who did not where to begin.

Crochet on

Jessica said...

I really love this. I've already made several and am going to do the flower one later today. I plan on making a bunch of these to give away to friends I see in about 2 weeks. They are so fast and are great for using scraps of yarn.

I just love this unique crochet headband pattern. It is different from the typical. I just made it for my five year old daughter and it looks great! Thanks for sharing!

Hang said...

Hello! I want to thank you for providing the pattern to all of us. I would just like to let you know I modified your pattern to make it 2 strands instead of 2 for a headband with a flower applique different from yours.
I did still give you credit for inspiration of the headband & put your URL in my post.

Avalon said...

I love this! I just made one, and without even realizing it was your site until now, I've previously made a couple of your other free pattern items! I'm pretty sure every time I google some crochet pattern idea, your blog always comes up and whatever the item is, it's beautiful! Thank you for sharing your work. I wish I had four arms (and hands) so I could make everything twice as fast!

I can't get past the part in row one where you have tp sc in the 30th ch from the begin of previous ch loop. Can anyone help with this. I don't know why but I am confused.

Thanks so much for sharing this pattern with the rest of us who are learning! It makes me feel more confident in learning to crochet. I made my own with acrylic yarn. I blogged about it on: http://clair.craftyneko.com/2010/04/02/learning-to-crochet/

agann said...

I'm sorry I'm new at this.What does ch141 mean? Chain stitch 141 times? That doesn't make sense to me.... can you please explain? I understand what sc and sc mean, I'm just not understanding how to start this. Thanks!

agann said...

I'm confused how to start... what does ch141 mean? 141 chains? That doesn't seem to make sense... please help

Lara said...

Agann - All crochet projects start with a "ch ###" in order to begin the project so you make 141 chains, then single crochet in the 2nd chain from your hook (there will be one chain skipped). Although I'm not Marta, I figured I'd answer your question. Hope that helped.

Marta - thanks for the awesome headband! I'm making a bunch for friends and I know they'll love!

I absolutely love this headband. I just made it a few hours ago. Thanks for the pattern!

Wnderlnd said...

Mine turned out very cute too, however, I must have done something wrong because my braids/chains are twisted once with each other. I think it will work though once I attach the flower--Which had 11 petals--not sure what I did there either.

Hello!
This headband looks incredible! I'm just having a little trouble understanding what I have to do.
So, I chained 141.
Then SC 29 and ch 80 which I connected back to the original 141 chain and sc 30.
I don't understand what I'm doing.
I would greatly appreciate some help from anyone.

It feels like this is written in UK terms. I think by sc you mean slip stitch in US. It makes a nice thin strap that way. Deb

Thank you so much for this lovely pattern.. I've made this, but its too large for my head.. Can you please tell me how to decrease the size of this pattern? And with how many chains I should start this pattern with? Please help me, eagerly waiting.

Anonymous said...

I tried to make this last night and I must have done something wrong. I am not undestanding Row 1, when it says to sc in chain 30. Does this make a loop for the middle strand? Or are all the ends supposed to be loose? I am confused. Please help!

Jessi said...

I made this headband this morning in very little time. I love it!! I can't wait to make different embellishments to go on it. I'm going to make one that is grey with a white flower. And maybe navy and grey and white. And instead of a flower I was thinking of using some vintage buttons. Thanks so much for this pattern! You are so talented and you have created some very sweet things. Keep it up!

Oops, the previous comment should have been on "Headband with bow" xD

beth hudson said...

Absolutely frustrated. It just makes no sense to me. Wish someone would rewrite this pattern.

Anonymous said...

Re last post- the pattern is as simple as it gets! Are you and English crocheter? In which case you need to just read sc for dc and Dc for tr and so on.

Anonymous said...

i really want to make this and i made one already. but i'm still confuse with this part:

ch80, sc in the 30th ch from the begin of previous ch loop, and in next 29chs, ch1, turn.

can you explain it?
thanks!
(i don't have an account so i will just check back in later)

Vicki said...

Found this while browsing through patterns on Ravelry and knew it'd be one I'd want to make for myself. I finally had a chance to make one tonight (since I've completed all my "in progress" projects) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I'm already planning on wearing it to work tomorrow and I have plans for making multi-color ones as well.

Thanks for a great, but simple and quick, pattern!

I tried this pattern and for anyone willing to try this. Pass...seriously. I tried for like an hour, and this pattern makes no sense and I couldn't do it. Just pass on it and try something else.

Jody Jones said...

Took me a while to figure out your pattern, you said English isn't your first language, so I thought I'd repost the pattern as I now understand it. Hopefully it clears things up for others :)

*Chain 141
*SC in second chain from hook, SC for 29 more (30 stitches)
*Chain 80
*Keep your yarn on your hook, and go back to the very start. Count 30 stitches in, and do 30 SC from there back to the start
*Chain 1, turn
*SC in first SC, and for 29 more (30 stitches)
*Chain 80
*SC in all the SC stitches at the end.

See? Clear as mud :) It's almost like you're only working the ends, the middle strands are just chains.

Anonymous said...

I really loved this! After reading all the comments, I counted backwards from the end of the row and put a stitch marker in the 30th chain. No problems after that!!! To keep it in place, I'm thinking about experimenting with some hot glue dots on the underside of the chain loops and a good blocking to keep them straight. This might be my family's stocking stuffers for Christmas! Thanks!!!

My Heart in Denver said...

Do you possibly or anyone possibly have the adjustments for a newborn's little head?? Thank you!!

Kelsey Gonzalez said...

Just for inspiration, you could easily make this into a belt if you put a button and a hole on the ends, and depending on your waist extending the patter out a bit. It would be a cute one!

Also, My Heart In Denver - newborn headbands need to be (If I remember right) 12"inches or so. Just chain twelve inches, divive the chain into four parts, and follow the patter like that. Do 12" instead of 141 stiches, and 3" instead of 30", if that makes any sense.
