Crochet Summer Headband
This beautiful crochet summer headband is perfect for windy days at the beach, working out, washing your face and to wear in the summer or anytime of the year. It’s very fashionable and you can make it in any color to match your wardrobe.
The pattern creates a headband that is approx. 16.5″ long and has braids on both ends, which are then tied together at the back of your head. This size fits both kids and adults! But you can easily make it shorter or longer.
Summer Crochet Headband Pattern
This summer crochet headband is a super fast pattern. You can make a headband in under 30 minutes! It’s also a great scrap-busting project as you only need approx. 35 yards of any size 4 cotton yarn.
Because you can make a headband so quickly with very little yarn, these summer crochet headbands are great to give as gifts or to sell at craft shows.
The pattern is very easy and includes step by step, clear instructions as well as a photo tutorial to ensure you have no troubles following along.
The best part of this pattern is that starting and end tails get incorporated into the braid so you don’t need to weave in any ends!
