Have your first mommy-baby twinning moment with these headbands! The beauty (aside from the cute rose at top) of it, is it's perfect for anyone. The size is easily adjustable, and would look adorable on long hairs, short ones, curly, straight, all of them! The free pattern's below for you to use, or get the ad-free printable PDF patterns here.
I recently started wearing crochet headbands when I would try to pull off the “Elsa Braid”. Without one, my hair on one side would slowly fall down. It didn't take long before my daughter started begging me to make her headbands also.
Crochet headband sizes can be a little tricky so if you do not know what the measurements are for the person you will be making the headband, check out >>>this<<< chart. It's by far my favorite! You can also try this crochet headband pattern out with different yarns and hook sizes too to get just the right feel and fit.

With larger hook, Ch 19.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (18 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, 2 sc in each st across. (36 sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sl st in first st, (2 dc, tr, dtr, tr, 2 dc) in next st, sl st in next st (petal made), [sl st in next st, (2dc, tr, dtr, tr, 2 dc) in next st, sl st in next st] across. (12 petals)
Fasten off, leaving a long tail.
Roll the rose up so that the petals spiral around each other. When you look at the bottom of the flower, you will see the first row of sc going in a perfect spiral.
Using the long tail and your yarn needle, sew the layers together securely at the bottom so that it can’t unroll. Do not weave in end.
Join yarn to hair tie by working a slip stitch into it (the same way you would work a slip stitch into a circle of chains).
Row 1: Ch 1, 6 sc into hair tie circle, do not join. (6 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, hdc each st across. (6 hdc)
Repeat row 2 until desired length. Make sure you consider the stretch of the yarn, and the headband. Allow for about 5-7 inches of stretch, depending on your yarn.
Joining Row: Ch 1, turn, put the other side of the hair tie along the row of stitches, working over the hair tie, sc in each st around.
Using remaining long tail, sew rose onto front of headband.
Weave in all ends.
For my daughter, her head measures 20 inches. I made the headband 13 inches long. (6.5 inches folded) For myself, I made mine 16 inches long. If you are using a different yarn weight, hook, or headband.. you will want to test your stretch. If you do not know the measurements of the head you are crocheting for, >>>THIS<<< is my favorite head measurement chart.
