Easy winter crocheted headband with decorative border and a crocheted flower accent

Easy written pattern instructions for a crochet winter headband
Easy pattern for crocheted winter headband


First make a plain headband by using worsted weight yarn and an I crochet hook.  Directions below

Chain 66

Row 1) Half double crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook  and in each of the remaining chains.  ( 65 hdc made)

Row 2)  Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the back loop only of each stitch across

Row 3) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the front loop only of each stitch across

Rows 4, 6 & 8) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the back loop only of each stitch across

Rows 5, 7 & 9) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the front loop only of each stitch across

Using your crochet hook, slip stitch the row ends together to form a tube.  Cut yarn and weave in ends.

With a contrasting color, attach the yarn some where near your seam.  Ch1 and single crochet in the same stitch as your join.  You will now begin the Reverse Single Crochet (or Crab stitch or Crawl stitch) Single crochet in the next stitch to the right.  Continue around the headband in this direction.  Fasten yarn.

Repeat the same process for the top of the headband.


Make the Flower

You can use any flower pattern you like.  This is how I made mine.

Chain 2

Round 1–In the first chain made, make 5 half double crochet.  Join in the first stitch made.

Round 2 — * Chain 3, in the next stitch, double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet, chain 3 and slip stitch *  Repeat from * around until you have made 5 petals.

Round 3- – You will now add loops behind the petals for the back layer you will make in the next round. * Chain 3, in the back of your work slip stitch around the post of the first triple crochet to your left.*  Repeat from * around  (6 chain spaces made)

Round 4 — * chain 4, in the chain space made in the previous round, make 3 triple crochet, chain 4 and slip stitch *  Repeat from * in the remaining 5 chain spaces you made in the previous round. (6 petals made)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail and fasten off.

Place the flower over the seam and sew to your headband.

Weave in all your ends and enjoy :)




Crochet Tie-back headband – baby photo prop pattern

Free pattern to make a crochet tie back headband.

These work great for photographers to use in shoots with babies and newborns because tie backs are so versatile.  For the sleepy eyed newborns the headband doesn’t even have to be tied, it can just be tucked away and hidden.

These are fun to make and a great way to use up those scraps of left over yarn that you ‘knew’ you would find a use for ;)

You can use any size hook and yarn of your choice.
I used:

  • Size J crochet hook (6.5 mm)
  • Worsted Weight- (MC)Turquoise – Not sure on what brand I used but it feels like Red Heart Super Saver.  The (CC)  white is heavy so it is probably Caron Natura or Red Heart with Love
  • A yarn needle, scissors, yard stick.
  1. With MC make a chain approximately 25 inches long.  If it helps mine is about 70 chains.  Fasten off, tie each end.

You can use any flower pattern you want.    For the turquoise one I:

  1. With MC Ch2, join in 1st chain made to form a circle.
  2. *Ch 3, DC into circle, ch3, slip stitch into circle *  Rpt from * 5 more times for a total of 6 petals.
  3. Fasten off.  With yarn needle sew flower to center of the chain.
For the middle part of the flower
  1. With CC, ch 2 and ss into 1st ch made to form a circle.
  2. Make 4 sc’s into circle.
  3. Fasten off, pull tight and sew into center of flower.

Wala, you’re done!  It probably took you longer to read the directions than it did to do the actual crocheting.   Have fun with this, try a version with ch4’s and triple crochets or even with 2 stitches between each of your chains.

60 Minute Headband

Knitted Headband or ‘Ear Warmer’ in One Hour

Remember that Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick that I had bought to make Jen’s Crochet Loop Stitch Pillow with last month? Well I found a way to use it.

When I got back in the house I grabbed my yarn and my size 13 needles.  As I started knitting I thought it just needed something else so I frogged it and grabbed a small amount of that Patons Stretch Sock yarn in Plum that I used for Ally’s Yoga socks.

  • Knitting with both strands I cast on 6, knitted until it was 2″ then k1, *k1, m1* til the last stitch, k1 which gave me a total of 10 stitches.
  • When the headband was 16″ I K1, *K2tog* to the last stitch, k1 for 2 inches and cast off.
  • Seamed up the ends and wallah had a very warm, very thick and soft headband.


Crochet Headband/Ear Cover…how easy is this?!

Even a beginner can make this in less than a couple hours.

I wanted to practice my half double crochet and I had a softball sized amount of pink Red Heart yarn that someone had given me. Without even realizing that I would create something useful I chained up 65 stiches, crocheted flat in the front loop for about nine rows and realized that if stitched up the ends this would make a warm headband.
Later that week the temps dropped and the winds off the fields froze my ears so this really came in handy!

If you want to make this on your own here is a rough pattern.
Feel free to make your changes to it as you see fit.

US size I crochet hook
scrap yarn (I used worsted weight)
Yarn needle

Chain 65, turn
Row 1– skip the first two stitches, and HDC (half double crochet) in the front loop across (63 stitches). Chain 2 and turn
Rows 2 – 9– repeat row 1

Leave enough yarn to sew up the ends with either a yarn needle or crocheted together.
Put on and save your ears from those sub-zero February days  😉
