This chained crochet headband is the perfect way to stay warm in the chilly winter months and if it was me sipping on some hot cocoa! This project is quick, easy and would be perfect to give as a gift!
Before we get started, I wanted to mention that this crochet headband pattern is part of a larger list of awesome designs that were released this month called Project Crochet!
(You can find the links to all their projects at the bottom of this post)
My chained crochet headband pattern or ear warmer depending on what you prefer to call it is a simple pattern that takes little time to make. When deciding on what yarn to use I choose one of my favorites Lion Brand Woolspun because it’s soft, easy to work with and comes in a variety of beautiful colors! It’s really a win win!
Plus, as a bonus, there is enough yarn in each skein that you can make at least 2 headbands out of it! It’s a Win Win!
This pattern is extremely simple to make because I only used the half double crochet stitch which makes this headband work up pretty fast! The simple stitches also make it a great beginner friendly project!!
I think it would be a perfect pattern to start with for someone who is just learning how to crochet!
