Difficulty:                           Easy

Finished Size:                  

Adult Small but it can be easily adjusted to any size and width

Materials needed:

  • 5 mm (H) size hook (I used Cream Streamline by Furls)
  • 40 grams, 80 yards/74 meters of Aran/Worsted weight yarn (I used Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran in Raspberry Pink shade)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (optional)

Stitches Used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

ST = stitch

SC = single crochet

DC = double crochet

[ ] = used to repeat a longer set of instructions between these brackets, the number of times given

Gauge: 4 SC = 1”

Additional notes:

  • If a row starts with a CH 1, that is not counted as a stitch.
  • US terms used throughout
  • At the end of every row, there’s going to be a note with the stitch count, so you can keep track of your work easily and avoid any mistakes. It’s written in a different color in bold
  • Notes are written in a different color in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • You can start each row as I did in the pattern or you can use a standing stitch or chains, it’s totally up to you!
  • You can easily adjust the width of your headband: the starting chain should be multiples of 2+1 chains


To start: CH 71

Row 1: 1 SC into the 2nd CH from the hook (Pic 1), 1 DC in next CH (Pic 2), [1 SC in next CH, 1 DC in next CH] 34 times


(35 SC, 35 DC)



Row 2: CH 1, 1 SC in same ST, 1 DC in next ST (Pic 1), [1 SC in next ST, 1 DC in next ST] 34 times (Pic 2-3)


(35 SC, 35 DC)




Row 3-12: repeat Row 2

(35 SC, 35 DC)

After Row 12:

Fasten off, leave a long tail to sew the ends together.

Sewing the ends together:

  1. Put a stitch marker in the middle of the short side, lay it flat vertically with the marked end on top. (Pic 1)
  2. Fold it in half by matching the short ends: the left corner of the other side should be on top where the stitch maker is.  (Pic 2)
  3. Fold left side upwards on top of the top layer. (Pic 3) (Note: keep the long tail free on top to avoid it getting wrapped in while folding)
  4. Fold right side downwards under the bottom layer. (The right corner will be under the stitch marker)(Pic 4)
  5. Sew the four layers together with a whip stitch, fasten off. (Pic 5)
  6. Flip it inside out. (Pic 6)
