50+ Cozy Winter Crochet Headband Patterns

Crochet headbands are an amazing first project for someone new to crochet. They are quick projects and you can use any easy stitch pattern you like. A headband is just a long, skinny rectangle you can stitch together at the ends, so you don’t need to know any special techniques to make one. 

When you make a winter headband, it might be a little wider or worked with a bulkier yarn to make it warmer so it can double as an ear warmer when it’s cold outside, too. 

These headbands are a great way to start your crochet journey because they’re such quick projects. But the most important reason is that it is a super fun and easy way to practice various crochet techniques.

These free crochet headband patterns make great gifts for your friends and family, too!

Check out this collection of cozy winter crochet headband patterns for all styles, skill levels, and occasions. The hardest decision you’ll have is deciding which one you will start crocheting first.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get started in making your crochet headbands!

Sizing a Crochet Headband

Much like with other crochet wearables, it’s important to make sure you get the sizing right on your crocheted headbands. If your band is too short it will be tight and uncomfortable to wear. If it’s too big, it will slide around on your head or even fall off, which won’t keep you warm at all.

How Wide Should the Headband Be?

Crochet headbands are typically worked flat from one short side to the other, so the width is determined by how many chains you work. 

The width of the headband will be how much it covers your head. If you just need to keep your hair away from your face, 1 inch to 2 inches wide is sufficient, but if you are planning to use your headbands as ear cozies as well 3-4 inches is the suggested width.

How Long Should the Headband Be?

The length of the headband will be reliant on the size of the head of the recipient, and to find this out you will either need to measure the head of the recipient or rely on a sizing chart.

How to Properly Measure Head Circumference?

Use a tape measure and measure your recipient’s head where the project is intended to be placed. Usually, for headbands there are a couple of options for how they will be worn. The first goes around the head like a hat, covering the forehead.

Measuring Head Covers the forehead

If the headband covers the forehead, you will simply measure the circumference of the head all the way around, as you would for a hat.

The other way to wear a headband is to cross the crown of the head and goes down behind or over the ears and around the back of the head (behind your hair if it’s that long).

Measuring Head Keeps Away From Face

If the headband will keep the hair away from the face you measure the circumference of the head roughly around the hairline.

While there are general standards for the size of heads, everyone is different so it’s a great idea to measure the intended recipient if you can.

Crochet Headband Size Chart

If you don’t know the head size of the recipient or want to sell your crochet headbands and want to cater to a specific age range here is a helpful sizing chart guide for you!

Crochet Headband Size Chart

Using the average head size usually is close enough, since crochet is a little stretchy if the recipient’s head is a little larger than average it should be fine.

Supplies Needed to Crochet a Headband

Choosing the Perfect Yarn to Crochet a Headband

It’s important to take the time to pick a nice yarn for your crochet headbands because you want them to be warm and comfortable to wear. The skin of the face and around the ears can be sensitive to itchiness, so it’s worth taking the time to find a great yarn to use for your projects.

So here are our helpful tips for choosing the best yarn for the job.

  • Think about how you will use the headband. If you want it to be an ear warmer, a thicker, warmer yarn will be a great choice, while a narrow headband can be worked in lighter weight yarn.
  • What fiber is best for you? Acrylic and wool blends are the best options for crochet headbands. Cotton is not as stretchy and won’t be as comfortable. If being able to machine wash your projects is important to you, choose acrylic or superwash wool.
  • Think about the pattern. If the design includes cables lots of texture or other design elements, a solid colored yarn is a better choice than a busy multicolored one so your work will be visible.
  • Find a yarn that feels good! If it doesn’t feel nice in your hands (and on your cheek in the skein) it won’t feel good as a headband, either.

If you’re looking for a good, basic, medium weight yarn that you can use for your headbands, we recommend giving Ewe Ewe Heather's Worsted Weight Merino Yarn a try.

How Many Skeins of Yarn Do You Need to Crochet a Headband? 

Because most are about 1-4 inches in width and the length around a head, the vast majority of the time you’ll only need a skein of yarn or less. But if your project is more than 4 inches in width and your skeins of yarn are small, you might want to have an extra skein of yarn ready.

Crochet headband patterns always recommend a particular yarn that the designer used in their sample. You can use the same yarn if it’s available to you or substitute yarn of the same weight as the designer used. If you don’t care if your headband is the exact same size as the sample in the pattern, you can even make headbands without making a gauge swatch.

Crochet Hook for Crocheting a Headband

If you’re working from a pattern, it will tell you what size hook the designer used to make their headband. Generally, you should be able to use the same size as long as you use the same weight of yarn, and as long as you like the fabric that’s created with that combination of yarn, hook and stitch.

Again, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about gauge, as long as you’re happy with the look you’re getting.

If you’re designing your own crochet headband, the size of hook suggested on the ball band of the yarn you want to use is a good place to start, but in general:

  • DK/Light Worsted Weight (3) calls for a 4.5mm-5.5mm hook
  • Worsted/Aran/Medium Weight (4) the suggested hook size is 5mm-6.5mm
  • Bulky/Chunky Weight (5) is best with a hook from 6.5mm-9mm

Since you might like to work with different sizes of hooks for different projects, we suggest having a crochet hook set like Tulip Etimo Crochet Hook Set, so that you already have all the hooks you will typically need. Learn all about choosing the best crochet hooks for you here.

Notions and Tools Needed to Crochet a Headband

While the yarn and crochet hook are the most vital tools for crocheting headbands or any other project, there are a few other tools that can be helpful to make your projects a success.

Scissors

As with any yarn craft, it’s important to have a good pair of scissors for cutting your yarn at the end of a project or when you need to change colors. Always leave a tail of a few inches to weave in whenever you cut your yarn – and a longer tail at the end of a headband so you can use it to sew the ends together!

Stitch Markers and Row Counters

Sometimes it helps to mark the first and last stitch of a row to make sure that you are working the correct number of stitches in the right places in your project. If you find that your projects tend to vary in width as you stitch, marking your stitches can help you know where to work and keep those edges more even.

We recommend Clover stitch markers. If you also want to count your rows, grab a Knitter's Pride Row Counter.

Yarn Needle

While you can use your hook to work in your yarn ends, a yarn needle is still essential for projects like crochet headbands where you will need to sew a seam. Our favorite is from Clover.

Best Crochet Stitches for Headbands

Although headbands are a great practice project that you can use almost any crochet stitch on, some of the best ones are the ones listed below.

Single Crochet Stitch

One of the basic crochet stitches every crocheter should know, the single crochet stitch is a great way to make headbands that are clean, simple, and sleek. They’re also quite warm because the stitch pattern is dense. Learn more about single crochet.

Single Crochet Stitch

Double Crochet Stitch

Another basic crochet stitch that is a staple for every crocheter, the double crochet stitch also creates simple and quick headbands that you can finish within the day. It’s a really fast stitch and because it is taller, allows a little more air flow in your headband and has a more decorative look. Here’s everything you need to know about double crochet.

Double Crochet Stitch

Half Double Crochet Stitch

If you want to quickly create a headband but still want a sleek look to your project, the half-double crochet stitch is the way to go. And since it is also a basic crochet stitch that every crocheter learns, chances are you already know how to do it. And if you don’t, check out the half double crochet tutorial here.

Half Double Crochet

Crochet Moss Stitch

The crochet moss stitch is a secret favorite amongst crocheters as it is quick to build but is beautiful to look at. It is worked by alternating between the single crochet stitch and a chain stitch, thus creating a unique pattern in the finished product. It also creates a breathable crochet fabric if you need your headband to have that feature.

Crochet Moss Stitch

Rib Stitch

If you are looking for a crochet stitch that resembles a knitted look, this is the one for you! The crochet rib stitch is worked by alternating front post and back post stitches. When worked across the length of a headband it will produce ridges that will be horizontal when you wear it.

Crochet Rib Stitch

Cable Stitch

Another knitted look favorite, but with the ease of crochet, the crochet cable stitch is worked by skipping and going back to stitches from the previous row. Again, because you are working from the short side, your cables will run horizontally in your project when you wear it.

Crochet Cable Stitch

Alpine Stitch

One of the most beautiful stitches, the crochet alpine stitch is worked by alternating between front post stitches and regular stitches, to create that unique slanted look in the finished project. This is a pretty warm stitch that’s great when you want a crochet earwarmer.

Crochet Alpine Stitch

Waffle Stitch

As the name suggests the crochet waffle stitch creates ridges that look like a waffle on the surface of the project. It is worked by utilizing front post stitches and regular stitches together. It is thick and warm and has a distinctive look.

Crochet Waffle Stitch

Puff Stitch

One of the softest and warmest stitches you can find, the puff stitch creates little puffy, bobble-like stitches in your work.

Crochet Puff Stitch

Common Questions About How to Crochet a Headband

How Long Does It Take to Crochet a Headband?

How long a headband takes to crochet will depend on the size of the headband, the weight of the yarn used, complexity of the pattern and your crochet skill level. 

That said, most crochet headband patterns are small and relatively simple to crochet, so you should be able to complete one in a few hours of stitching. 

Is it Easy to Crochet a Headband?

Yes, it is easy to crochet headbands! Some headbands are super easy that even someone who only has a grasp of the most basic crochet stitches can easily make them. Of course, for more intricate details there are also crochet headband patterns that cater to leveling up your skills.

How Many Chains Do You Need to Crochet a Headband?

It depends on the pattern and the size of the head of the recipient. Since you are typically starting from one of the narrow ends, you will only need to chain as many chains as you need to make the headband your desired width. 

One thing to note, however, is that many crochet stitches require a particular stitch multiple (say, a multiple of 2 or 3, for example) in order for the design to work out, so keep that in mind when you decide how many chains to make. 

Of course, if you are working from a pattern, it will tell you how many chains you need. 

How Do You Join Crochet Headbands?

There are several different ways that crochet headbands can be worked and styled. Some headbands are worked as a long, narrow strip that’s longer than the head circumference so the ends can be tied, in which no more finishing is required than weaving in ends. 

Other patterns call for stitching the short ends together to make a loop, while others are worked in the round, where you chain enough stitches to fit around the head and work the width of the headband. This sort of headband also needs no finishing. 

The easiest way to sew the ends of a headband together is to work with the tail of the yarn. From the back of the work, use your yarn needle to stitch from the loop at the top of the last row of stitches to the loop of the chain, making sure to take a stitch at a time evenly across the piece. 

How Do You Crochet a Twisted Headband?

The crochet twisted headband is an easy technique and another way to finish a headband that needs to be sewn together to finish it. The twist is created by folding the ends of your project and sandwiching them before sewing the ends together.

To begin, fold each of the short ends in half and mark the center point with a stitch marker.

step-1 How to make the twist in the crochet twisted headband

Sandwich the folded ends together, such that the folded pieces locked together make a sort of s shape.

step-2 How to make the twist in the crochet twisted headband

Sew the outside edges together.

step-3 How to make the twist in the crochet twisted headband

Flip your project right side out.

step-4 How to make the twist in the crochet twisted headband
