Pattern: Crochet Bow Headband

Free crochet pattern for an adorable bow headband tutorial.

This is pretty monumental. This is the first pattern that I have ever written, and I am pretty darn proud of it!

I was inspired by a request from a friend to make a headband that she had found on Pinterest.

Of course, I didn't have a pattern, but I had made crochet bows and headbands before and I thought I could probably wing it. Turns out, I was totally capable.

I learned how to crochet off of free patterns, and I always vowed that I would return the favor by offering up any patterns that I came up with for free, as well. So... here she is.

  11. This headband is super cute and was so easy to make!! I absolutely adore the bow!!! I modified the band a bit, instead of whip stitching the ends together I joined the last chain with the first chain with a slip stitch and crocheted around. Thanks for sharing this awesome pattern!!!

  12. Cute pattern! The only suggestion I would make is adding more stitches to the chain on the headband part depending on the size of your head. I had to go up to 75 and I was using a size K hook, too. I also added another row to the bow. But it is an awesome pattern. Thank you!
