Bind off.  Weave in ends.


Finished (blocked) piece will measure approximately 18” x 3”

Pieces B and C (tie ends)

Using knit fabric – cut two pieces each measuring 12” x 2.5”
Knit fabric doesn’t unravel so no need to further prep these pieces.

Place the wrong sides of pieces A and B together with piece A (crocheted fabric) extending about a 1/2” beyond piece B [see Figure 1 below].  Also, center piece B (which is 2.5” wide) on piece A (which is 3” wide).

Hand sew pieces A and B together [see Figure 2 below] approximately 1/8” from edge of piece B.

Fold piece B over so right side of piece B is facing wrong side of piece A [see Figure 3 below].

Tack at corners on the wrong side of fabric [see Figure 4 below].

When you are finished you won’t see any of the sewing stitches on the right side of the headband (if you matched the sewing thread to the crochet thread) [see Figure 5 below].

Repeat on the other side using piece C.

  1. This looks LOVELY! I am being hounded to make some headbands for a friend. Did it take you very long to crochet this? I just started this pattern about 40 minutes ago and with all the distractions I’ve only completed 2 1/2 inches, but I am only using a size 5 needle. (That was the size I just so happened to have in my purse.) I’ve done a lot of looking online for patterns and this is hands down my favorite one so far! Thanks for the post!

    Well, once you get the hang of the pattern it goes pretty quickly. I honestly can’t say how long it took to make it – but, probably not that long.

    I’m glad you like it!

    • Yes, I have gotten the hang of it and it is going pretty fast. It seems so delicate and it makes me want to go slow, but I don’t have the patience to go slow! It is coming along. Once I finish it I will put it up on my blog and definitely link back to you. This pattern is SO going on Pinterest!!!

  3. That’s where you can find the headband I just made. Thank you so much for the free pattern!!!! LOVE IT!
