I just love mixing simple crochet stitches. It would surprise you how beautiful and interesting stitch pattern you can get with using very basic crochet stitches. Sometimes can be a bit messy counting rows and rounds, so it’s great to have a piece of paper and a pen or a digital row/round counter somewhere nearby to make notes as you go.
My this week’s project was to make a simple crochet headband and spice it up with a beautiful stitch pattern that I can bet you would not know if it’s a knit or crochet just by seeing the fabric. Cool right?
Last week’s project was a pattern for a sweet baby bonnet that you can find here. Happy crocheting!
YARN: Aran weight yarn – Yarn and Colors EPIC 100% cotton yarn,
CROCHET HOOK: 4.5 mm crochet hook, or the size needed to obtain the gauge.
YOU WILL ALSO NEED: 2 stitch markers, tapestry needle, scissors.
GAUGE: Work 8 stitches and 4 rows in DC using a 4.5 mm crochet hook and an Aran weight yarn to measure 5 x 5 cm (2 x 2 inches).
When you find a new crochet project that you would like to make, you usually want to start ASP. We all do. But please take some time and check the gauge. It might save your project!
Checking the gauge is a crucial step in the process of making a new crochet/knit garment. It will help you achieve the right size of your finish item. Learn how to check your gauge here.

Please, read the instructions carefully. Don’t skip any parts of the pattern and make sure you are not accidentally losing or adding additional stitches to the pattern. That might affect the final look of your design.
Headband (newborn size)
Take the Aran weight yarn and 4.5 mm.
Create a foundation chain and join it with a slip stitch. Make sure you do not twist the chain before joining.
Work in rounds. Do not turn after each round.
Create a foundation chain made of 48 chains. Join the chain with a slip stitch (ss).
Round 1: Ch 1. Repeat (1 sc into the first st, 1 dc into the next one) 24 times. Join with ss. = 48 sts.
Round 2: Ch 2. Repeat (1 dc into the first st, 1 sc into the next one) 24 times. Join with ss. = 48 sts.
Repeat rounds 1 and 2 three more times.
Round 3: Ch 1. Repeat (1 sc into the first st, 1 dc into the next one) 24 times. Join with ss. = 48 sts.
Cut the yarn and fasten off.
Place the headband on a flat surface with the seam in the center and the seam facing up.
Fold the center part (along the seam) a couple of times.
Take a small amount of yarn and a needle. Thread a needle and sew the folded layers of fabric together.
Once the layers of fabric are nicely secured, start wrapping the yarn around that area. Secure both ends of the yarn with a nice firm knot and hide both ends between the stitches.
Congratulations, your work is done! 🙂
