This week I made a little something for myself – a cozy headband. Sometimes I need something small to work on in between big projects. How about you? I’ve seen a lot of double layered headbands and hats this season and was excited to make my own. This easy headband turned out so nicely that I ended up making one for my daughter too. It worked out perfectly because I had some of the same yarn in her favorite color, teal! You’ll see that the headband is completely beginner friendly and there’s a step by step tutorial on how to make it below. 🙂
The LB Collection Chainette yarn was something I was given on my trip to New York this year. I’d heard of other bloggers loving it, so I was thrilled to get my hands on some! It’s so soft and luxurious as it’s made with baby alpaca and just a bit of wool (which I wouldn’t guess from how soft it is). The color palette is probably one of my all time fave palettes I’ve seen for a yarn. So yeah, it’s a winner and I say use it if you get a chance. You can see all of the color options and shop for it on the Lion Brand site (here).
The whole, turban, twist, bow look for headbands and hats is still super popular this season. This is a simple version that you can whip out quite quickly!

The stitch pattern used is the simple granite stitch. You can find a tutorial for this stitch at: https://www.mamainastitch.com/how-to-crochet-the-granite-or-moss-stitch/ This tutorial shows you how to work this stitch flat. If you’ve never crocheted in the round, you’ll also want to do a simple online search for a tutorial to show you how to crochet in the round. Enjoy!
