Everyday Creative Adventures

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.

Directions:

Round 1: With color A, make a foundation chain that is 1 inch 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. Once you’ve got the correct length chain, check that the chain hasn’t twisted and then join to the first ch with a sl st. 

Round 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a dc), dc in each ch around, join to first dc with a sl st.

Round 3: Change to color B, ch 1, sc in each st around. Join to first sc with a sl st.

Round 4: Change to color C, ch 2, dc in each st around. Join to first dc with a sl st.

Round 5: Change to color B, ch 1, sc in each st around. Join to first sc with a sl st.

Round 6: Change to color A, ch 2, dc in each st around. Join to first dc with a sl st.

Round 7: Change to color B, ch 1, sc in each st around. Join to first sc with a sl st.

Round 8: Change to color C, ch 2, dc in each st around. Join to first dc with a sl st.

Round 9: Change to color B, ch 1, sc in each st around. Join to first sc with a sl st.

Round 10: Change to color A, ch 2, dc in each st around. Join to first dc with a sl st.

Round 11: Continue with color A, ch 1, sc in each st around. Join to first sc with a sl st. 

Fasten off. Weave in ends. 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. Sew the button on top of the pinched area. Weave in and trim any loose ends.
