I came up with this easy Crochet Baby Headband Pattern to make within 30 minutes today. I actually used the same technique as you would when starting on a crochet baby bootie. You simply work one row across the foundation chain and then around and across the other side. Simple.
For Visual Learners crochet along with me in the Crochet Baby Headband Video Tutorial.
Small amount of pink and white babyweight yarn (or 4 ply)
Crochet Measurements to fit head
Newborn (0000) – 35 cm
3 mth old (000) – 40 cm
6 mth old (00) – 45 cm
9 mth old (0) – 48 cm
12 mth old (1) – 50 cm
Stitches & Terms
This pattern is using US stitches and terms. To convert stitches go to my Crochet Stitch Conversion Chart.
ch = chain
hk = hook
rnd = round
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
unused loop = the loop that hasn’t been crocheted into on the bottom of a stitch
Make a foundation chain to the length (per the measurements above).
Tip: When working try not to make stitches too tight or the headband will curl up.
Row 1: sc into 2nd ch from hk, sc into each ch across, 2 sc into last ch, work around the other side working an sc into each unused loop, sl st in 1st st.
Finish off; leaving 15cm end tail. Using your yarn needle, sew both ends together of the headband to join to make a circle. Weave in end with yarn needle.
Stretch the headband a little to get the curls out.
ch 3, sl st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 1, 9 sc into ring, sl st in 1st sc.
Rnd 2: ch 4, sl st in 2nd sc, *ch 4, sl st in next sc, rep from * until the end, join in last st with a sl st.
Finish off; leaving 15cm end tail.
Using your yarn needle, sew the flower to the headband over where you joined the headband ends. This gives the headband a cleaner finish and hides that join.
You should now have a completed Crochet Baby Headband.
