Free Crochet Pattern - Lacy Headband

Free Crochet Pattern - Crochet Lacy Headband  

Hello, I’m popping on today with another easy and FREE crochet project – my Lacy Headband pattern. This beautifully simple crochet headband uses a very simple pattern repeat and is joined on to elastic hair ties so will most head sizes…

I designed this crochet headband earlier in the year for the @Crochetzine over on Instagram. I was inspired by the beautiful cow parsley that was surrounding the lanes and road edges here and really wanted to create a delicate pattern that would still be able to withhold being stretched over my head! The answer was to crochet onto an elastic hair tie (you know the type you use to put your hair into a ponytail) using this method I’ve been able to create a stretchy headband that keeps its shape whilst doing a good job of keeping those pesky flyaways out of your face.

The pattern is really simple and is suitable for beginners but to make it even easier to follow along I’ve also created a video tutorial here. There is also a chart of the stitch pattern at the beginning of the pattern if you find it easier to work from charts.
