These headbands are so cozy and cute that I find myself wanting to make one in every color possible. The stitch used for this pattern gives the headband a nice knitted look and feel. It will be constructed by simply crocheting a long rectangle and then seaming it together with a slip stitch.
This pattern is made using Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand. Of course, you can substitute with any worsted-weight yarn. I especially love Vanna’s Choice because they have a variety of gorgeous hues that are perfect for autumn & winter.
One of my favorite alternatives is Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran because it’s available in over 60 bright & beautiful colors that are perfect for any season!
Each headband will not require much yarn. This pattern is perfect for using up scrap yarn from other projects. Also, these headbands look extra cute with pom-pom ears! Try adding pom-poms in different color combos for extra cuteness! Pom-pom instructions are included at the end of the pattern.
This pattern is for an adult-size headband. You can make smaller sizes by simply starting with a shorter foundation chain and crocheting fewer rows. I will be writing another pattern featuring all sizes, including baby sizes, super soon! Make sure to subscribe to my newsletter to get notified when the new patterns are available.

Crochet Headband Pattern:
Row 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. Hdc in each ch across. (10)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Hdc in each st across. Crochet in the back loops only until you get to the last st. Hdc through both loops on the last st. (10)
Rows 3 – 42: Repeat row 2
Continue to finishing Instructions. Do not cut the yarn.
Fold your headband in half so that the first & last rows are lined up. When folded, the last row should be facing WS out & the first row facing RS out. Create a seam with a row of slip stitches.
Fasten off and weave in yarn ends. Then, turn your headband right side out & you’re all done!
Pom-Pom Instructions (Optional):
Using your pom-pom maker (I use the Clover Pom-Pom Maker, size 2.5″), make two fluffy pom-poms with the same color yarn as your headband, or a different yarn for an extra pop of color. Tie your pom-poms off leaving long tails to attach them to the headband.
Place pom-poms about 4” (10cm) apart on the front of your headband. Using your crochet hook, pull pom-pom tails through the headband. Then, turn the headband inside out and tie pom-pom tails securely.
Next, weave yarn tails back through the top of the headband and incorporate them into the pom-pom. Finally, cut the tails so that they are the same length as the pom-pom strands.
