Headbands are nice small accessories saving us from cold and wind in any weather. They are fast to make and can become a wonderful last minute gift. Chocolate Bar Headband crochet pattern was designed exclusively for Happily Hooked magazine. And now, when copyright came back to me, it is released as a stand-alone pattern. Hope you’ll enjoy!

Pattern Notes:

  • Headband is worked in rows in back and forth. Change to new color on the last yarn over in the end of the row, when there are 2 loops on the hook. Colors are changed after every two rows unless otherwise stated in the pattern. Don’t cut yarn but carry it along the edge to next rows.
  • Ch1 in the beg of each row doesn’t count as a st.

Putting both halves together

Flip first half over second one (use a sewing pin to hold them together) and crochet next row on the top of both half beginning on the second one:

Next row: Continue with Yarn A, ch1, sc in each st to end (change to Yarn B in final st), turn – 23 sts.

TIP: To adjust the length of the band make more or less rows on the next part. If you adjust the length, please, make sure the band is finished either with Row 4 or Row 8. This will help to make the seam invisible.

Repeat rows 6-9 once more – 23 sts

Repeat Rows 2-9 five times – 23 sts

Repeat Rows 2-4 once more, fasten off and cut both yarn leaving approx. 40cm tail of Yarn A.

Sew short sides of the headband using yarn tail and needle.

Finishing

Work evenly with Yarn A and sc along both edges of the band. Insert the hook under the floats of yarn on the edge to hide them. To begin, attach Yarn A with ss under the flap, ch1, sc in same st as join and continue to crochet with sc until you come to flap again, fasten off. Repeat for another edge. Weave in all tails.

  1. I'm definitely going to make this headband for next winter. I think there's no need for it this winter, as it is 14 degrees here.. But have to buy the yarn, as the shop closest to me decided to stop selling Merino Soft :(
