Crochet turban headband - FREE PATTERN

I like to wear my hair up but in this time of year it can get quite cold for the ears :) That's why I decided to make myself a warm turban headband.





Skill level: Easy
Abbreviations:  ch – chain
                                hdc – half double crochet

Pattern note: Chain 2 at beginning of the row counts as first half double crochet.

Row 1: Ch until it matches your head size.
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in each of the remaining ch, turn.
Row 3 - ?:  Repeat Row 2. Make as many rows as you wish but don't forget that this is going to be only half of the width of your headband.

At the end of the last row fasten off, leaving long end.


Finishing:

Here is a little video which will show you how to tie a headband.

Slowly take the headband off your head and sew both ends together and upper and lower part of the headband.




And voilà, here is your turban headband :)



Have a nice week!

    1. I think twice. I got confused too then I realized if I only did it once its not going to work.

  6. I am wondering what weight of yarn you used for this project. I am excited to try this pattern as looks exactly like what I have been searching for . I am new to the knitting and crocheting world so still need fairly straight forward projects.
    Thank you for your assistance with my questions,

  10. The initial chain needs to wrap around your head TWICE, it should be simple from there!
