Striped Pinched Crochet Headband

I admit it, I’m a big wimp when it comes to cold weather. I actually moved to Vancouver Island, an area that many consider the mildest climate in Canada, just to escape the frigid cold. While the majority of the winter we manage to elude the cold weather, we do get the occasional day below zero degrees (Celsius).

Today I thought I’d show you all my Striped Pinched Crochet Headband I made for my daughter.  She’s not a big fan of hats so this crochet ear warmer is a good alternative for her and I know it will keep her precious little ears toasty warm.  

These headbands are the perfect crochet accessory to add a pop of fun and color to your child’s outfit. They also make great gifts or stocking stuffers. This headband crochet pattern only uses a small amount of yarn so you can make more to give to friends and family.

This is a really easy crochet pattern, something you can make in an hour or two.

Striped Pinched Crochet Headband Pattern

Materials:

  • Medium/Worsted weight yarn in 3 colors  (colors A, B and C) – I used Red Heart Soft yarn in approx. 60 yards total.
  • Crochet Hook – US J10/6.00mm (if you want a tighter look to the stitches use a slightly smaller crochet hook)
  • Button of your choice
  • Embroidery needle
  • Scissors

Directions:

Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet (U.S.)

  1. Measure the head size of the person you’re making the headband for.
  2. With color A, make a chain (by using the chain stitch) that is 1″ shorter than the person’s head size (do not stretch the chain to measure it).  Make sure you keep a loose tension while making the chain.
  3. Once you’ve got the correct length chain, check that the chain hasn’t twisted and then join to the first stitch with a sl st so that it now forms a ring.
  4. Round 2: dc in every chain until you’re completed the round and join to the first dc with a sl st.
  5. Round 3: change to color B, ch 1 and then sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  6. Round 4: change to color C, ch 2 and then dc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  7. Round 5: change to color B, ch 1 and then sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  8. Round 6: change to color A, ch 2 and then dc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  9. Round 7: change to color B, ch 1 and then sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  10. Round 8: change to color C, ch 2 and then dc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  11. Round 9: change to color B, ch 1 and then sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  12. Round 10: change to color A, ch 2 and then dc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  13. Round 11: continue with color A, ch 1 and then sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a sl st.
  14. Bind off and weave in the ends.
  15. Determine where you want your button. Turn the headband inside out, pinch the middle rows together (approximately rounds 3-9) and then sew them together with your color B yarn.
  16. Sew the button on top of the pinched area. Weave in and trim any loose ends.

Easy 3 Strand Crochet Hair Band Pattern

Easy 3 Strand Crochet Headband Pattern

Easy 3 Strand Crochet Headband – Over the Christmas holidays my daughter Noelle was generously showered with lovely gifts, including some great new outfits.

What does a girl with new outfits need… chic accessories of course? I created this three-strand headband pattern and I’m quite pleased with how easy it was and how well it turned out. It can be made by anyone with a minimal understanding of basic crochet stitches.

This fun crochet headband can be made in under 15 minutes and uses very little yarn making it a great scrap buster crochet pattern.

3 Strand Crochet Headband Pattern

Materials:

  • 3 colors of yarn (or you could do all the same color if you’d like) – I used a mix of yarns: Redheart Soft in white, Caron Simply Soft in light and dark purple.
  • Crochet Hook – US I9/5.5 mm.
  • Scissors

Directions:

Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch (U.S.)

  1. Measure the head of the person you are making the headband for.
  2. Leaving at least a 6″ tail of yarn, using the chain stitch, make a chain 3″ less than your desired length. Keep your tension consistent along the entire chain – medium to firm tension.
  3. Now add in your new color, making sure to leave at least a 6″ tail of yarn (if you aren’t sure how to add in a new yarn color into your stitches please watch this great video tutorial here – the video shows how to change colors using a single crochet stitch but the concept is the exactly the same for the chain stitch). Once you change to your new color, cut off you end of yarn from the first chain you made so that there is at least a 6″ tail.
  4. Chain the new colour until it’s the same length as the first ( to check, grab the end where the 2 colors were joined, hold the cut ends and fold the second color over so that the 2 chains are now side by side).
  5. When the 2 chains are the same length, connect them by making a slip stitch into the last stitch of the first chain.
  6. Add in the third chain color by following steps 3 – 5.
  7. Trim the final color yarn end so that there is at least a 6″ tail.
  8. Take the 3 loose cut ends and braid them together and then tie off with a knot on the end. Repeat again on the other end.
