Crochet headbands are fun and quick projects to make. With basic crochet stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, or double crochet, you can easily make a headband.

They are quick and easy to make. Depending on the size you can make one in an hour or less. They’re a great way to use up leftover yarn from other projects and they make great gifts.

Why Crochet a Headband?

It’s harder to think of reasons why not to crochet headbands than reasons why you should. Every crocheter, at some point, wants a quick crochet project they can finish in a sitting or over the course of a day. The perfect item is headbands, for a few reasons: 

  • Use your yarn stash. Just about every crocheter is guilty of having a pile of unused yarns. Well, they’re perfect for crocheting headbands.
  • Practice crochet stitches. If you want to practice a certain crochet stitch but don’t want to commit to a big project using a new-to-you stitch, you can try crocheting that stitch into a headband.
  • Fashion and function. Crochet headbands are the perfect accessory for those days when you don't have time or don’t want to fix your hair. Just put on a headband and you're good to go.
  • Great gifts. Since crochet headbands are easy to make, they make a great gift for anyone in any season.

Speaking of practicing stitch patterns, if you’re ready to learn some new stitches and try them out on headbands or other projects, our Ultimate Crochet Stitch Library has 45 stitches for you to play with!

How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Headband for Adults?

Usually, in 20 to 40 minutes you can make a crocheted headband and be ready to wear it.

But how long it will take to make your headband depends on the weight of the yarn you’re using, the crochet stitches utilized, and your skill level and pace as a crocheter.

Tips for Crocheting a Headband that Will fit Perfectly

Check Your Gauge

While gauge is not 100 percent critical on crochet headbands because you can usually just work them to your desired length, it’s a good idea to check your gauge to make sure your project is going to come out as expected. 

If your gauge is different from the pattern suggestion your stitches may look different, your headband will be narrower or wider than expected, or you might need more yarn than expected to complete your project. 

Measure Yourself and Your Work

Measure your head’s circumference and measure the headband you’re crocheting. The pattern will suggest how long your finished headband should be to fit comfortably around your head, but if you’re making it for yourself (or someone whose head you can measure) knowing the exact measurement will make it fit better. 

A lot of pattern designers suggest that the length of the headband should be an inch or two shorter than your head size for a snug fit. As you wear your headband the yarn will stretch so it won’t feel too tight.

Use Tools to Keep Track

Many of the patterns you’ll find for a crochet headband include instructions for different sizes from infant to adult large. If the numbers of stitches for each size are put inside parentheses, you can print out your pattern and use a highlighter or pen to emphasize the numbers you need to follow as you crochet along later.

You can also use a highlighter or a pen to mark the rows you’ve completed if your project has a long pattern repeat. Use hash marks on your pattern or invest in a row counter so you know where you left off when you come back to your project. 

Learn the Chainless Foundation Row

This technique requires no specific number of chains to build your first row. Compared to the usual way of making a foundation chain, the chainless foundation row is stretchier. This is why it’s great to incorporate crocheting headbands.

If this technique is new to you, watch this video tutorial by Forever Bliss Crochet on how to make a single-crochet, half-double-crochet, or double-crochet chainless foundation row.

Materials

Yarn

For crochet headbands, leftover yarns from other projects might be sufficient as they don’t require a large amount of yarn.

Crocheting a headband is also a great way to explore yarns, get familiar with different materials that make up yarn, and experiment with colors. It’s also a great reason to buy more yarn!

Lion Brand Basic Stitch is a great choice in the (4) worsted weight yarn category. It’s soft, inexpensive, easy to use, and machine washable. Your headband will still look neat even after multiple uses and washes.

If you want to use cotton yarn, try Lily Sugar'n Cream. This will be great for summer headbands, but be aware it’s not as stretchy as wool or acrylic.

Another great option is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick for chunky ear warmers to keep you cozy during chilly days.

Crochet Hook

Use a quality crochet hook like the Amour Crochet Hooks for an ultimate crochet experience. The smooth glide of this hook will add to the quick-project factor of your headband.

The size of the crochet hook you need will depend on the weight of your yarn. The pattern will tell you what size you should choose. If you are designing your own headband, choose a hook size suggested on the yarn ball or what you would typically use with that weight of yarn. 

Other Notions

You will also need a measuring tape for measuring your head and the headband as you work.

Stitch markers are helpful for marking the last stitch of the row if you have trouble keeping your sides straight. You can also use them to mark pattern repeats to make counting rows a little easier. 

For weaving in ends and sewing the sides of headbands, a tapestry needle is needed. And of course for cutting yarn, you need a pair of good scissors.

Optional Embellishments

There are limitless ways to decorate a crochet headband. You can add pompoms, buttons, or other crocheted appliqués like hearts, flowers, and other shapes you can think of.

So now that you know some tips and techniques to crochet a headband, grab your yarn and crochet hook and check out the free easy crochet headband patterns for adults below.
