Hippie Headband – Free Crochet Pattern

Hippie Headband - Free Crochet Pattern

As a woman who has had both very long hair and very short hair, I can appreciate the value of a good headband. With short hair (limited hairstyle options), a headband is a great way to sass things up a bit. With long hair, you need a headband to keep your hair in check while you task around the house or wash your face. And, it looks nice, too.

This particular crochet headband features a tie-back style, which I love, because it pretty much guarantees the headband will fit. The pattern below is for an adult, although you can be sure my daughter will be asking ever-so-nicely for one in her size. Would take a couple small modifications to do the job. I’ll keep you posted. Update: The child size headband pattern is now available. Find it here: Little Hippie Headband – Free Crochet Pattern




The pattern calls for worsted weight cotton yarn, just to keep things cool and breathable on a hot summer day. If you are looking to make a cold-weather version of this headband, go ahead and use an acrylic or wool-blend yarn. Whatever worsted cotton you have on hand should be fine, however I do want to mention that I used Premier Home Cotton, which (although they are both worsted), I find to be just a tiny bit smaller in weight than Lily Sugar and Cream. Personally, I would recommend the Premier for this particular project, since it has a slight blend of acrylic in it, and comes out of the wash softer than when it went in.

Make a scrap project of it, but only if you are a glutton for punishment when it comes to weaving in ends!
