My love for instant gratification projects is fully on display with this pattern! These headbands are the perfect item for markets and gifts because they work up so quickly. I plan to make a ton of these for my upcoming spring markets and pair them with matching crocheted scrunchies (Pattern here). I hope you have fun whipping these cuties up!
Let's get into it!
mohair yarn (held double; I purchased one skein that I split into two. You can make numerous headbands with one skein.) (I used Touch Me Mohair by We Are Knitters. Use Code: MGMVXG181 for $12 off of your order.)
6 mm crochet hook
headband (I used the Scrunchi Elevated Basics Headbands from Target (link)
glue gun or adhesive of choice
* Pattern is written in standard US terms*
- I used the Tunisian crochet knit stitch. Check out this video if you are unfamiliar with this technique.
- Each row includes the "return pass" (This is not stated in the written instructions below).
- This pattern is easy to customize. You can crochet your fabric using any stitch that you like. The main focus is to crochet the length of fabric that matches up with the length of the headband that you have.
Step 1: Crochet a 21 inch strip of fabric. ( I used the Tunisian Crochet knit stitch but feel free to use any stitch you prefer.)
The headband I purchased is slightly tapered on the ends so I crocheted the strip as follows:
Chain 4. Draw up a loop in the back bump of the second chain from the hook and in the remaining chains until you reach the end. (4 loops on hook). Work a return pass. Continue working until it measures 2 inches.
On the next forward pass, you will increase by one stitch so that there are now 5 loops on your hook. I made the increase in between the second and third stitch. Continue crocheting until your fabric measures 4 inches from the starting edge.
On the next forward pass, you will increase by one stitch again so that there are now 6 loops on your hook. I made the increase in between the third and fourth stitch. Continue crocheting until your fabric measures 17 inches from the starting edge.
Now we will begin our decreases.
On the next forward pass, you will decrease by one stitch so that you have 5 loops on your hook. I made the decrease on stitches three and four. Continue crocheting until your fabric measures 19 inches from the starting edge.
On the next forward pass, you will decrease by one stitch so that you have 4 loops on your hook. I made the decrease on stitches three and four. Continue crocheting until your fabric measures 21 inches from the starting edge. Cut yarn and finish off.
Step 2: Tie a loose knot at the center of the headband.
Step 3: Glue the fabric to the top and sides of the headband.
