Crochet hearts in a string to make an adorable simple headband.
Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I thought it would be cute to make a new crochet headband pattern.
Instead of making a band then just adding on a heart, I decided to crochet hearts in a row.
Adding a button and a loop on the end makes for an easy way to put the headband on. Should you not want to do this, you could also sew the two end hearts together.
The headband pictured is a newborn size headband. However, I will include what the measurements would be should you want to make another sized headband. Your starting chain should be the measurement suggested.
Crochet Headband Measurements
- Newborn 13 inches
- 3-6 months 14 inches
- 6-12 months 16 inches
- 12 months-tween 17.5 inches
- Adult 18 inches
Crochet Heart Headband Pattern
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- H crochet hook
- Worsted Weight Yarn – I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Burgundy
- Yarn Needle
The starting chain will need to be a multiple of 4 plus 1.
( to ) means all stitches made within the same stitch.
Starting Chain: Chain the appropriate amount of chains to reach the desired measurement. My example for the newborn size, I chained 49.
Row 1: In the 3rd chain from the hook, *(2 Double Crochet Stitches, Chain 1, Slip Stitch, Chain 1, 2 Double Crochet Stitches). Skip 1 chain and Slip Stitch into the next chain. Skip one chain.* Repeat from * to * across the starting chain.
Rotate your work to crochet back along the starting chain to make the points if the hearts.
Row 2: *(Half Double Crochet, 2 Single Crochet Stitches, Double Crochet, 2 Single Crochet Stitches, Half Double Crochet) into the center of the heart. Slip stitch over the slip stitch chain one from row 1.* Repeat from * to *. For the last heart slip stitch into the turning chain.
Add a loop for a button: Chain 8 and slip stitch back to the heart. (You may need to adjust depending on the size of your button).
Weave in your ends and sew on a button.
