Crochet Baby Headband Pattern

Crochet Baby HeadbandI 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.

This pattern is using US stitches and terms. To convert stitches go to my Crochet Stitch Conversion Chart.

ch = chain

hk = hook

sc = single crochet

sl st = slip stitch

unused loop = the loop that hasn’t been crocheted into on the bottom of a stitch

Crochet Baby Headband with Flower Video Tutorial

Written Pattern

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.

Little Flower

ch 3, sl st to form a ring.

Round 1: ch 1, 9 sc into ring, sl st in 1st sc.

Round 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.

All the best,

    hi paula,
    i love your baby headband
    i see that you have put up a scale on how long the headbands will be for the different ages but how many chains do you start with. by watching your video i know that a new born is 71 chains but what about the other sizes?

    • Paula says:

      Hi Kayla, find the measurement you need for the size you want to make then keep making chain sts until it measures the right length by placing your foundation chain on a tape measure.

  2. TR says:

    Thank you SO MUCH for the simple headband for a very young mother who is just learning to crochet. Do you have a matching bootie pattern for me to make for her baby? I usually knit, but plan to learn to crochet.

  3. Maureen says:

    Hi Paula! Thanks for the great video for crocheting the baby headband with flower! I made one for my new little granddaughter and it turned out very nicely! Now, I am going to crochet the baby booties! Your instructions are easy to follow. Could you possibly write the instructions at a larger font? When I printed the pattern, the font is very small and difficult to read. I tried to copy paste onto a word document so I could print the pattern out at a larger font, but I wasn’t able to copy paste. Thanks!
