1.Woodland Animal Ears

DIY crochet headbands are such fun and easy easy projects. This super basic pattern has 3 variations – bear, fox, and deer headbands. Why not make all 3 and add them to your child’s dress up collection. What a fun way to encourage imaginative play!
2. Blueberry Dance Headband
Designer: Croby Patterns
Sometimes, basic is best. Would you believe me if I told you that this headband is made with only single crochet and double crochet stitches? It’s true! The Blueberry Dance Headband is one of those magical crochet patterns that looks intricate but is actually perfect for beginners.
3. Knot Me Up Headband
Designer: Crochet Dreamz
We can do it! Tied headbands – like the one that Rosie the Riveter wore – are making a big comeback on the fashion scene right now. You can make this retro knotted headband super easily and quickly using extended single crochet stitches.
4. Velvet Twist Headbands
Designer: Daisy Farm Crafts
If you’ve ever worn a scratchy headband before you know the struggle is real. Kids especially tend to be more sensitive to the dreaded scratchiness that harsh yarns can have. If your kiddo is picky and you want to make sure they’ll actually wear the headband you make, then you can’t go wrong with this lovely velvet twist headband!
5. Old Rose Headband
Designer: Mon Petit Violon
A delicate vintage rose headband is the ultimate baby accessory. No, really! It’s casual enough that she can wear it every day, but also nice enough to wear for a photo shoot or special occasion. Plus, the pattern is quite simple and quick. It’s a win-win-win.
6. Rosey’s Headband
Designer: Winding Road Crochet
A simple multi-strand headband is a classically cute choice for any stylish baby. You can even dress it up with a simple flower or a bow. Heck, you could probably even figure out an easy way to make them removable so you can swap the embellishment out to match baby’s outfit.
7. Aspen Socialite Headband
Designer: Make and Do Crew
Who knew that a beginner crochet pattern could look this good? When you work single crochet stitches into the back loops only you get a whole new look. It’s ridged, it’s simple, and yet it’s also super sophisticated. Don’t forget the fancy wooden button and you’ve got yourself one posh headband.
8. Crochet Chevron Headband
Designer: Whistle and Ivy
Have you ever wondered how to crochet a chevron pattern? This adorable chevron headband is a great small project to learn from. I love when I learn new crochet techniques! Then you can make larger chevron projects like blankets and sweaters.
9. Flower Headband
Designer: Crochet Beja
Challenge yourself to make this intricate flower headband out of thread. I always learn so much when I push myself to try something more difficult (even if I am just learning from my mistakes). The pattern for this exquisite accessory is in video format – perfect for visual learners.
10. Forget Me Not Headband
Designer: The Little Treasures
You can crochet a flower crown that will last forever with this easy and adorable Forget Me Not Headband. The little flowers are crocheted individually and then strung together – just like a real flower chain. I think this headband would also look lovely with all different colored flowers!
11. Scalloped Lace Toddler Headbands
Designer: Cute and Cozy Crochet
Not a fan of seafood? Don’t worry, we aren’t talking about that kind of scallops. Scallops in crochet are a type of edging that looks like a row of semicircles. I love the feminine feeling it adds to a project and it’s absolutely perfect for these cute scalloped lace headbands.
12. Casual Cotton Headband
Designer: Winding Road Crochet
Monkey see, monkey do, right? You might be able to teach baby to like wearing a headband if you wear a matching one. These would also be perfect for gifting in a mommy and me set. You’re going to love how easy it is to make these casual cotton headbands.
13. Bunny Ears Headband
Designer: Megmade with Love
Oh my cuteness! This bunny ears headband is just the thing to welcome spring. The double-thick ears stand up on their own and they look really polished too. Honestly, I’m just in love with this whole concept and I really wish I knew someone to make it for!
14. Antonia Headband
Designer: CJ Design by Danii’s Ways
There’s just something about an oversized bow on a teeny tiny baby that makes my heart skip a beat. This beginner crochet headband uses basic single crochet and half double crochet stitches – but the effect is anything but basic!
15. Lucille Bow Headband
Designer: The Yarn That Binds Us
Bobbles and babies go together like peanut butter and jelly. They’re both just so playful and fun! You will love making this bobble stitch headband almost as much as baby will enjoy wearing it. Oh, and don’t forget the bow!
