The winter is almost here and I’m sure you will agree with me that it’s now the time to create a cute crochet headband ear warmer! When you wear a crochet headband, your ears will remain warm, and you’ll be able to do carry out your activities throughout the day without feeling as you were an “Esquimau” (excuse my french)!
I really enjoy doing these simple crochet headbands and ear warmers, because they make great accessories for everyone, from babies and kids to adults. Everyone loves them! I choose to make them for baby girls and women because it’s my thing.
When you add a beautiful crocheted bow or flower to your already cute headband, it looks so pretty.
When you wear a crochet headband like this one, your ears remain warm all day long, and you’ll be able to do carry out your activities throughout the day without feeling as you were an “Esquimau” (excuse my french)!
Plus this crochet headband is super easy to make, and that’s perfect for beginners. You only need to know simple stitches, single crochet, chain stitch, half double crochet, and double crochet, front and back post.
Below, I’ve added a headband sizing measurement table for your convenience, and you’ll be able to make it in any size (from newborn to adult). You can make this headband for yourself or for your little ones. And you’ll also learn how to make a nice bow!
This project works up pretty quickly, it’s the kind of patterns that you can make in one afternoon, and you only need a small amount of your preferred yarn. As a beginner, it’s always a good idea to start with a simple project.
Ah, and I’d love to see your awesome finished headband, so when you are done, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram #soukainacollections or Pinterest.
This nice headband ear warmer will make a perfect handmade gift for your loved ones. Here’s a great idea for your next gift, you can make two or three matching headbands, one for mum, and the others for her baby girls.
It’s a win win-win, everyone is happy, mum, you and the baby girls!
Enough said, and without further ado, let’s crochet a cute headband for yourself or your baby girl…
Skill level: Easy – Beginner
Can I make it in any size?
Yes, you can make or customize it for any size. You should have a tape measure and measure your head circumference. You can make chains (multiple of 2) and measure your head circumference with chains. For example, I made 90 chains for head circumference = 55cm / 21.7 inches (adults), but when you measure it with a tape measure without a stretch the result is 53 cm / 20 inches.
Headband sizing measurements:

The “Brown” Crochet Headband Pattern:
Start with chains (multiple of 2) = head circumference, I made 90 chains. Sl st in the last stitch from the hook.
Round 1: ch 3, dc in the same st, dc around, sl st in the first st to join. (90 sts).
Round 2: ch 3, fpdc in next, bpdc in next, now rep (fpdc in next, bpdc in next) around, sl st n the 3rd chain to join. (90 sts).
Rounds 3-7: ch 3, fpdc in next, bpdc in next, now rep (fpdc in next, bpdc in next) around, sl st n the 3rd chain to join. (90 sts). Fasten off.
Then take a length of yarn and wrap 2 time in the middle of the headband, then tie a small knot in the back of the bow and cut the ends.
Chains will be the width of the headband/bow. And rows will be the length of the bow.
Row 1: ch 15, hdc in the 2nd ch, hdc in next each st. (14 sts).
Row 2-15: turn your work and ch 2, hdc in next 14 sts. (14 sts).
Sc around the perimeter of the rectangle and fasten off, weave ends.
Take a length of yarn and wrap it around the middle of the crochet bow, starting in the middle of the yarn. After wrapping 10 – 15 times, take the headband and put the bow on it, then wrap around the crochet bow and the headband, then tie a small knot in the back of the bow and cut the ends.
As you can see, I made this brown crochet headband in adult size, but feel free to do it in any of your preferred colors. You can also make the bow in a different color if you wish.
I enjoyed crocheting this crochet bow headband. You can do several of these in an afternoon. Why not? Distribute them to your friends and family member and see the love you’ll get in return. It’s an excellent idea for a quick gift. Just spread the love.
