Easy And Elegant: Crochet Headband

Do you have some leftover yarn and 15 minutes to spare? Crochet this simple and stunning headband! Done in just two chains of half double crochet stitches, this headband comes together in a breeze. Plus, it doesn’t use much yarn, so it’d be perfect for finishing off a skein of yarn leftover from another project. The genius part of this project is the hair tie finish. This technique can be applied all kinds of hair accessories or headwear, even bracelets or necklaces. Attaching the hair tie at the ends ensures that this headband will stretch to fit most any head size. I can’t believe I’ve never thought of that before! Go ahead and check out the easy to follow video tutorial below, and get the full instructions beneath the video. Happy crocheting, friends!
