  • Granny Square Headband

    A few weeks ago one of my kids that I nanny for asked me to make them a headband. I asked her what kind of headband and she shrugged her shoulder and said “I don’t know!” So I thought about it and when looking through a crochet book by Leisure Arts called Quick Itty Bitties. I saw this crochet Granny Square Hat. I thought how cute would that be as a headband instead of a hat.

    I found this cotton yarn Crème de le Crème while on vacation last week in Southport, NC called Angelwings Needle Arts. So I used 5 colors 4 different colors for the granny squares each square has three colors. I know that the pattern calls for more than 4 colors. The 5th color is a light gray I used light gray to crochet the squares together and did a single crochet across the top and the bottom. She can wear this headband now or when it gets cold to keep her ears warm. I like knitting or crocheting with cotton because breaths. This project was quick and easy. It only took a couple hours.

  • Summer Headbands

    FullSizeRender (18) Roxanne's Headband

    I created this pattern a couple of years ago right after I learned how to crochet. I can’t stand to have my hair in my eyes especially during the summer. This pattern is quick and easy. It should only take about 30 minutes. I also like to use Lily’s Sugar’n Cream yarn because it is 100% cotton. Cotton breathes a lot better than acrylic yarns, especially during this time of year - you want some ventilation. I used a size H crochet hook.  You can crochet headbands in all sorts of colors to wear with everything!

    First you chain 28.

    Then for your first row go into the 25th chain with 3 double crochets, and single chain in between the 2nd and 3rd double crochet.

    Then for the rest of the headband you will chain 3 at the start of every row and 3 double crochets with a single chain after the 2nd and 3rd double crochet.

    When you reach the length that you want, or use your head to measure the circumference of your headband, then you are ready to decrease.  I chain 3, and then decrease over the next 3 and then chain 25 and bind off. Tuck your ends in. Never just cut the end of your yarn; if it comes loose, your whole project could unravel. Here is a really cute epattern Too-Cute Kerchiefs Crochet  from Leisure Arts and yes it is really too cute. I was thinking about how to make one this afternoon - I'm totally going to try this!
