What do you need for crochet headbands?
What You’ll Need
- US J/10 (6.0 mm) crochet hook.
- Safety pins for checking band fit.
- Yarn or tapestry needle.
How wide should a crochet headband be?
A headband/ear warmer should be about 4″ wide. This is the perfect size to cover ears and keep you warm. You could change this easily if you’d like it smaller or even wider. In my experience I found that 4″ tends to be the ideal size for most ear warmer patterns.
How long does it take to crochet a headband?
A really simple project that can be completed in 2 hours or less.
How many stitches do you need for a headband?
Usually you will use 13 stitches to create your headband. If you use a different number of stitches then you will have to readjust your headband rows to suit. You can use whichever cast on method your prefer for this project. Good beginner cast on methods include the long tail cast on and backwards loop cast on.
