Have you ever wanted to crochet a headband in any size? I have some tips and tricks so that you can! You will need to make sure of a few different things before you try this... First, you will need to choose a headband
that is made in rows of a single stitch. So a row of DC, HDC, or SC is fine! But you can't do it as easily if you are using the shell stitch which requires a certain type of multiples. Second, you will need to account for other kinds of stitches. For example my Katelyn Ear Warmer uses post stitches which pull the headband together, making it smaller than your starting chain. But you can account for that by adding some length to the chain.
Are you ready to get started?
You will need:
Any yarn in any size
Appropriate crochet hook
First, you need to decide what size you need to do. This pattern can be as big or as small as you want it to be. To be exact, you can measure the head of whomever you are making it for. If you can’t do that use my handy dandy chart!
(Hint: Most yarn is stretchy enough that if you use the measure the head method, go at least an inch or two smaller than the measurement. Keep it in mind for when you use the chart as well!)
You can do the same thing with my Katelyn Ear Warmer. Because the ends over lap in that pattern, and because of the post stitches I added one inch to her actual head size... So because her head measured 17 inches I chained to 18. Then followed the pattern exactly!
Facebook and on Instagram! Or just follow her for some serious photography inspiration. She is legit, folks.
