Crochet Headband Pattern

This crochet headband pattern is worked up in two colors using a #2 yarn. I used Premier Cotton Fair, which is a cotton blend, and has a lovely stretch to it.

Plus, this headband ties at the back for a custom and super comfortable fit! It’s great for summer, winter, long hair, short hair and everything in between!

The pattern is given in one size only to fit a small-to medium adult. However, in the stitch multiple provided you can easily adjust the length, thus enabling you to make this for children and in larger sizes as well.
