Hats and Headbands

Velvet Headband Crochet Pattern

Once our deep freeze weather starts to subside in my corner of Canada, I like to set aside the full hat and switch to a headband! This year I’m enjoying my new Velvet Headband Crochet Pattern.

When I picked up the Bernat Velvet yarn from Yarnspirations, I will confess, I was itching to try it! I had heard so many mixed reviews of it, but was drawn to the variety of colours and how soft it is!

This Yarn is so soft!

I love its softness! And not too long after I brought it into the house even my kids were asking for a blanket from it.  So stay tuned! one will probably be coming in the future!

After playing with the yarn for a bit I decided to try it out with a smaller project.  I grabbed a couple of colours and set to work.  Because of how soft it is I knew it would be a pleasure to wear.  And being a particularly cold day that day, I had winter wear on my mind!

The Velvet Headband is now part of a set which includes a complementing pair of mittens.  The mittens will be available hopefully with in the next week and I will be sure to link them back here.

Pattern Details and Construction:

The pattern itself is worked in two parts.  As the headband is double thick you will work the front and back separately, and then crochet them together.

It is a fairly easy pattern and works up quite quickly.  You will need two different colours of yarn (about 75 yards of each) as well as a 6.5 mm crochet hook.

A full video tutorial can be found at the bottom of this post and on my YouTube Channel. While you’re there, please don’t forget to subscribe!
