Holiday Headband – Free Crochet Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

I hope you all had a lovely Holiday/Merry Christmas!

Here is a simple and very quick headband to make – I’ve included instructions for all sizes – and you can use any embellishment you wish – I have used my Holiday Bow Pattern to embellish Darla’s as we still have a few Holiday parties to attend this year –

You could make this headband in different colours for any season – or for regular wear!

With Darla growing her hair out and the hard headbands pinching her head behind her ears – these are the current headband of choice in our house.
