DIY Crochet Headband

Today I’m sharing how to crochet a very simple headband. I figured its pretty timely too considering the cold temps are upon us in Toronto! I kind of made my own variations and think this one is pretty simple to follow. I’m so excited to share this pattern with you!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Skein of yarn – Usually I use a category 5
  • Crochet hook- size 6.0mm

You’ll need to know how to:

slip knot, chain, single crochet, weave in ends


ch = chain
sc = single crochet

  1. Foundation: Start with a slip knot, and ch 6 (keep the tension loose), ch 2 extra
  2. Row 1: sc in the 2nd chain from the hook. sc 6 acrossPSX_20191123_154456.jpg
  3. Measure the circumference of head size you need. This is how many rows you’ll need to crochet to achieve that length. For me it was 20″. So repeat step 2 until you have your length.
  4. Once you have completed this, finish off your ends. PSX_20191123_154541.jpg
  5. The final step is to crochet your ends together to join the sides and tie it off with a knot!

Crocheting is so much fun! I’m thinking the next step is that I will a fleece liner for this hat to keep me warm during what is predicted to be a pretty bad winter. Have fun making this hat either for yourself or as a gift!
