If you have been looking for a quick crochet pattern for velvet yarn then this pattern is it!
This velvet headband works up fast and uses only minimal yarn so you can make quite a bit of this cutie with just one skein of yarn.
I hope you enjoy this pattern!
The Velvet Yarn That’s Perfect for This Headband
For this headband I used Bernat Velvet Yarn which is extremely soft and comes in a big skein size of 315 yards! Skeins with large yardage are always a positive when working with yarn.
If you have ever worked with velvet yarn then you will know that it has a tendency to worm (or pull away) from the fabric and create loops. I figured out that the fewer loops you make with this yarn the better hence why this whole pattern is worked in single and half double crochets.
Even though it has this flaw I still love it anyway! This yarn is super soft and cozy which makes it a great one to make a winter accessory with. If you don’t mind working with basic stitches then this is the yarn for you!
I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook even though the yarn label said to use a 6.5 mm. Again, the problem with the bigger hook was worming and with trial and error realized that a smaller hook is ALWAYS better.
How to Change the Size of a Crochet Headband
To change sizes in this pattern you will just crochet an even number chain to the size you need. I wrote up an article about how to make a headband/ ear warmer to any size, which will be a great reference for this pattern.
Also, I have included each size written down below in the pattern. See the pattern notes and instructions for help.

Crochet Velvet Headband Pattern
Keep in mind we are making them about 1 inch smaller than needed to give way for stretching that will most likely occur.

- Toddler: 15″ Circumference
