I am delighted to share the Happenin' Headbandana crochet pattern with you today. One thing I have come to hate about crocheted headbands is that they stretch out during the day and fail to keep your hair secure. To combat this, I use a hairtie at the base of the headband and make my project a bit too small for my head.
I have what my husband refers to as a "pinhead" (meaning my head is tiny), and my crocheted headbands still stretched out. Drove me nuts, because in my opinion, the whole purpose of a headband is to keep your hair out of your face, right? How's that supposed to happen if the dang headband keeps sliding off? I came up with what I think is a brilliant solution to this problem, and my design is made smaller than your head and includes the use of an elastic hairtie to allow for the stretching. My Ice Cap Headband doesn't get too loose and stays on all day long!
One of the things I've been reading on social media is that people get frustrated when the velvet yarn stretches, especially when making items like headbands. My headband pattern includes a hair elastic at the base of the neck and is made intentionally small to allow for the stretch. This headband has been a big seller for me, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
The Stars and Stripes Headband is my first pattern using my signature Dolphin Stitch. I love this stitch because of its texture and versatility. This stitch is easy to master, works up quickly, and is already loved by hundreds of crocheters. If you are a visual person when it comes to learning a new stitch, please bookmark this site and check back regularly for a video tutorial!
The Poseable Bunny Ears Headband is fun to make, and even more fun to wear! You will need a few little extra materials to make this project, but the ens result is totally worth it!
