Braided Winter Headband

I remember making this braided headband for my daughter about two years ago. She loved it so much that she insisted that I make several in an array of colors. So as I was looking through old photos I came across a photo of her wearing it and I thought I would share the process I went through in making the headband.

For this braided headband I used a worsted weight yarn and a 5.5mm crochet hook.

I started off by making 76 chains
Single crochet into the second chain from the hook. Continue in single crochet to the end of the row.
Chain 1 and single crochet to the end of the row.
Continue in single crochet for a total of six rows.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
This is your first strip completed. Now make two more!

When you have all three strips completed lay them all side by side. Stitch the ends together on one side. Begin by braiding the length of the strips together and when you get to the end stitch all three ends together. Once that is done you can now stitch the headband together to form a circle. You are now ready to wear your braided headband. Enjoy!! xx


  1. Started making this, there's no way this is going to fit around my mom's head...

    1. So make your chain longer. Or use a smaller hook. Obviously, not everyone has the same size head.

    2. Actually, if it's too small she might want to use a larger hook. I tend to have a tight tension, so I always go up one size (at least) on the hooks in order to get my gauge. :)

  2. When stitching ends together, put them on top of each other and stitch that way?

  3. I would fan them out a little. They won't be on top of each other when you braid them. I made a headband like this many years ago for my daughter, but don't remember exactly how I did it. I think each strip covered half the strip next to it. Good luck! My daughter loved the headband.
