Free Crochet Headband Pattern.
This crochet headband is crocheted in a fine yarn to give it lots of stretch for a comfortable fit. Plus, the fine yarn makes it ideal for the summer as it won’t be too hot to wear in the hot sun. And it ties at the back making it easy to adjust the tightness around the head.
It’s great for both long and short hair, summer or winter. The pattern also provides a stitch multiple, making it easy to adjust to a custom length including for children and toddlers.
Another beauty is that you can basically substitute any yarn you like including a worsted weight. Thus, it’s the perfect pattern if busting through your stash.
