I've been meaning to post this tutorial for a while, but just haven't gotten around to it for various reasons. But since it's still winter and cold in many places, it's definitely not too late to make one.
This is a simple and cute headband that is easy and lined with fleece to make it warm and not itchy. Perfect for the beginner or pro crocheter.
The Snake Winter Headband - Crochet Pattern
My husband said that the squiggly touch of yarn on top reminds him of a snake, so I have name this The Snake Winter Headband. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Remember, it's easy!
- Yarn: For this particular headband I used a cotton wool blend yarn (sorry I don't know the name of the yarn). But any yarn would work
- Hook: I used a J hook, but an I, J, or K would work fine.
- Yarn needle
- optional: fleece for a lining
button and elastic hair band to secure the headband
Part 1: Chain 9 (if you want it wider or thinner, either add or subtract - this might make a difference depending on your yarn choice)
Row 1: half double crochet stitch in second stitch and across rest of row. chain 1 and repeat in the rest of rows until the headband fits around your head perfectly.
Part 2 - Option A with Button:
Part 2 - Option B without button
Stitch together both ends using a yarn needle
Part 3 - Adding Fleece:
Part 4 - adding the 'Snake':
This will depend on however long you want the 'snake' to be on the headband
A. Start chaining and periodically check the length on the head band by situating it up and down on headband, so it looks like a snake. Once you've determine the length you want...
B. hdc in second stitch, 2 hdc, 1 hdc, repeat until head of chain.
C. using a yarn needle and coordinating yarn, sew your snake on where the original chain was. If you like to, you can pin it in place first to determine where you want it to be.
and your done!
