Free Double Crochet Headband Crochet Pattern

Hey y’all!

I decided to post this free simple headband crochet pattern since it’s the base of my animal headbands and some people don’t want to have giraffe ears on their head lol.

This free crochet pattern is insanely easy to make. And I have a sizing chart for adult to newborns down below!

How to Make a Simple Headband


I used weight 4 cotton yarn for this headband because of all the good things about it. (You can read my All About Cotton Yarn article to read more). But you can use other yarn if you would like.

Stitches Used (US Terminology)

Slip Knot: tutorial by SarahMaker

  1. Create a slip knot on your crochet hook.

  2. Yarn over and pull through the slip knot loop, creating a new loop on your hook. This is the first chain stitch.

  3. Repeat these steps to create additional chain stitches: Yarn over, then draw the yarn over through the last loop on your hook to form a new chain stitch.
  1. Insert Hook: Insert your crochet hook into the stitch that you want to create the slip stitch in.

  2. Yarn Over and Pull Through: Yarn over (wrap the yarn around the hook from back to front), and then pull the yarn through the stitch and through the loop on your hook in one motion. This is different from other crochet stitches, as you’re not creating any additional loops on the hook.

Slip stitches are used to join rounds, close gaps, or move your hook to a different location within your work.

  1. Yarn Over (YO): Yarn over by bringing the yarn over the hook from the back to the front. The yarn should be positioned above the hook.

  2. Insert Hook: Insert the crochet hook into the stitch where you want to begin the double crochet.

  3. Yarn Over and Pull Through: Yarn over again and pull the yarn through the stitch. You should now have three loops on your hook.

  4. Yarn Over and Pull Through Two Loops: Yarn over once more and pull through the first two loops on the hook. This leaves you with two loops on the hook.

  5. Yarn Over and Pull Through Remaining Loops: Yarn over one last time and pull through the remaining two loops on the hook. This completes one double crochet stitch.

  6. Repeat: To continue making double crochet stitches, yarn over, insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull through, yarn over and pull through two loops, then yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops.

  7. End of Row: When you reach the end of the row, you’ll typically work a turning chain (usually two chains for a double crochet) before you start the next row. This turning chain helps create the proper height for the next row of stitches.

When finishing an amigurumi piece, you’ll need to fasten off to secure the last stitch.

Cut the working yarn, leaving a tail, and pull the tail through the last loop on the hook, tightening it to secure the stitch.

Here’s a helpful video tutorial.
