This crochet hair band tutorial is an original creation of this blog. If you want to share this elsewhere please contact me first. Being a crocheter since childhood, I always wanted to teach someone else what I know. Turns out blogging is the best option as I am a bit shy of facing the camera to make tutorial videos. So that, I made this blog naming Nethu Crafts.
I am not Nethu. Nethu is my lucky daughter. Ever since she came into our world, our little family had so much good things than before. Hence I decided to name this blog after my cutie.
As my first post, I thought to share a simple project which is easier for beginners and take littlest time as possible. With this small tutorial you will learn single crochet, double crochet as well as how to change colours in a simple way.
For this hairband you need 2 colours of yarn. I used worsted weight acrylic yarn which is the only available yarn type in our country. If you use mosaic yarn you can get a hairy look in your hair band.
For what purpose I need this hair band? Well, look for yourself.
I’ve got along hair which requires me to braid every time and tie it with a hair band. I’d like a fresh look but all traditional hair bands looks same with only one color. So, why not try making a unique hair band with what you have?
Enough Rubbish. Right? Now for the tutorial.
Take 2 colours of yarn for this project. I took yellow and dark pink. With one color yarn make a slip knot and chain 11 times.
Now from 3rd chain from hook make a double crochet. Use this simple guide if you don’t know how to double crochet. Keep crocheting dc until the first chain hole. You should now have 9 double crochets in a row.
Now 1 chain and turn back side of your project. Crochet single crochet on each dc. (9sc) 3 Chains and turn back.
Again 9 Double crochets, 1 chain and turn back. And then 9 Single crochets. Change the color. See how I changed the color below. This way you can easily change color without any hassles and keep the pattern perfectly.
With new color make 9 DCs in a row. Repeat the pattern of first color.
With first color you made 4 rows. Same as first color, you need to make 4 rows with second color. 1 DC row, 1 SC row , again 1 DC row and 1 SC row. Keep changing color and crochet until you feel it’s long enough for your hair band. Fasten off. In my project I made 4 yellow color stripes and 4 dark rose color stripes.
Now you have to join 2 long side together to make a tube.
Use an elastic of your choice. Put it inside the tube and join both ends with slip stitch
I am sure that this hair band will be a nice addition for you hair styling collection. If you like this crochet hair band tutorial please share it on Pinterest .
