DIY Crochet Headband/Ear Warmer

I am sure most of you remember my knitted headband, right?

Well, I'm back but with a crochet
 pattern instead, yay!

I think I actually like the crochet better, 
however it does take a little longer.
 But that's mainly because I'm a slow crocheter.

So lets begin!

You will need a Size H Hook...

First chain 64 links.

Then with your chains facing the same direction join to form a circle.

Slip stitch to join the circle.

Chain two and crochet a half double crochet into each chain.

Continue on and slip stitch at
 the end of each round.

Crochet a total of 10 rows.

After 10 rows, chain 1 and slip stitch 
into each chain for a finished look.

Now for the flower..

I love making crochet flowers, eek!

Ok, so start off with a magic ring 
using your H hook.

Crochet 8 half double crochets into the ring.

Then pull your starting string.

Then slip stitch into the first half double crochet.

Chain 1 and crochet a single crochet 
into the next chain.
In the same chain crochet two half double crochets and then one more single crochet.

Skip one chain, and then repeat: one single,
 two half doubles and then a single.

Continue skipping one chain and repeat the pedal pattern. You will want only 5 pedals.

Slip stitch to join the flower into the 1st chain.

Chain 1, and flip over to the back side. Find the post from the first 8
 half double crochets that you did into the magic ring. Crochet a single crochet going behind each post. Chain two and repeat on each of the 8 posts.

Slip Stitch to the first chain 1 to join.

Flip it back over and chain 1, and crochet 1 single into the first opening
 (the chain two in between each post).

In the same opening, crochet three double crochets and another single.

Repeat 7 more times on each opening:
One single, three half doubles and another single.

Slip stitch into the 1st chain to join.

Chain 2 and flip it back over to the back side. 
Crochet a half double crochet
 into the previous 8 posts. 
Like you did in the first time,
 but this time you will
 use the new 8 posts.
Chain 2 and repeat half double, then 2 chains for the next 7 posts.
Slip stitch into the 2nd chain, to join.

Chain 1 flip it back over to the front, 
and crochet a single, 4 half doubles and another single into each 8 of the posts.
 And slip stitch into the 1st chain to join.

Chain 3, flip it back over to the back side and this time you will crochet a double crochet into each 8 of the new posts, and chain 2 in between each post.

Slip stitch into the  3rd chain to join.

Chain 1, and flip it back over.

Now the pattern will be, a single, 5 half double crochets and another single.

Repeat pattern into all 8 openings,  and slip stitch into 1st chain.

Cut a long (about 2 feet) and pull 
your yarn through to knot it.

Now that your flower is done, you can attach it to your headband either by a clip or by sewing it on.

There are two ways to sew it on:
1) By using a yarn needle
2) Or use the crochet hook to weave it in out and out all the way around.

Note: I picked up the 3rd layer when sewing it, every other pedal to minimize movement.

Thanks so much for tuning in!
Until Next Time...


  1. You make this look so easy! Thank you for the tutorial!

  2. I love these! My friends sister made me something super similar at the beginning of winter and I wear it all the time! I wish I understood your crocheting lingo so I could make it lol. I need to refresh my skills!

    1. Awe, Jess, I know crochet lingo isn't so easy to follow. I do best sometimes with videos myself.

  3. This is really gorgeous! I love your hat! Visiting from Submarine Sunday Link Party! Thank you for sharing pattern!
    Hope you have a wonderful day!
    Hugs and love from Portugal,

  4. those are too pretty, how long have you been crocheting?

    1. Thanks Louise. How long have I been crocheting. Oh goodness, lets see let me add up all those years lol. I guess like 25 years, basically since early teenage years. My mom tried over and over to teach me before then but I'm left handed and it wasn't until Home Ec in Middle school that I finally learned.

  5. Adorable headband! I love the headbands with large flowers! Thanks for sharing at Submarine Sunday!

  6. I love it! I will have to try out this pattern. Thanks for linking up at Totally Terrific Tuesday! #tttparty
