Crocheted Headband

This is my happy little project this weekend. It's very simple and easy,
something I thought of making yesterday evening. I've wanted to make
headbands this summer as I wear them a lot but since I haven't had
much time to sew I decided to try and make a crocheted version instead.

It's just rows of double crochets with an elastic band attached
to both ends (I got the idea for this from Pinterest).

I'm really pleased with it. It's not too tight and stays in place
 and looks nice too--all I want from a hair accessory. So I guess
I can say my first attempt at headband making has been a success.

I'm planning to start making another one tomorrow on the
car journey to Hull. I've enjoyed using this Drops Muskat cotton
yarn and I have a few other colours of this same yarn so expect
some more headbands in various colours soon.

I hope you're enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend.
Take care. See you soon!


  1. It's really cute, Marion. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your trip!

  2. Very cute! Need a pic of it being modeled!!! X

  3. That's fantastic...perhaps something I can try out my new (ahem) skill at crochet!!!

  4. It's great Marion. Will you make any for your daughters?

  5. I agree with Helen, I want to see you wearing it! I love the elastic band idea, I think my daughters would wear these, and I know I would! I have a weird, big head - not convenient for store bought headbands!

  6. I think it's lovely. I saw a pretty child's headband in Asda recently with a daisy attached, and thought that would be fun to crochet.x

  7. This is lovely Marion, I like the colour you have used. Are you planning to make some for your girls too?
