It’s finally FREE! This is one of my very first designs. I’m so excited to release it for free as a part of the Autumn Harvest Blog Hop. This Boho Crochet Headband Pattern is easy to make, and the color combos are endless.
Although, I crocheted this up in a few different color combos, but for some reason these colors spoke to me. Making this inspired me to create a bit of stitch sampler headband. Of course, feel free to use whatever colors you desire!

This Boho Crochet Headband Pattern is fairly easy, but stitch placement can be a little tricky. My video tutorial…WOOOOOFFFFF…I was brand spankin’ new at designing. I basically have no idea what I’m talking about. Laughing hysterically at myself going back through this video. I’m almost embarrassed to put it out there, but you know what? We ALL start somewhere and practice makes progress, that’s for sure!

Boho Crochet Headband Pattern
Suggested Yarn: Scheepjes Merino Soft, 50g = 105m 50% Merino Wool 25% Microfibre 25% Acrylic, 50g (1.8oz), DK, 115 yards per skein.
note: This yarn can be purchased on Love Crafts (the EU version) or Love Crafts (USA) version, but – the EU version is $1.26 or so cheaper. The US version is selling this for $6.99! That’s just crazy. These are tiny skeins. You can purchase it in the EU version of the website for 4.31 in pounds, which is $5.25 in U.S. dollars. Even with shipping you will paying less to order from the EU site.
A little bit about the yarn…
The good: Merino Soft is a wool blend, mixed with micro fiber. It’s very soft, and delicate. I love the feel of this yarn. The color choices are amazing. I LOVE most all of Scheepjes yarn. I’d say it is a favorite for sure.
The Not So Good: It is a tad slippery and splitty. It tends to stretch a little if your tension is too tight. So I recommend working on keeping an even tension for this. Using the 4.00 (USA-G) hook helps, and if you choose to go down a hook size, that may work too.
Yardage: 1 skein each (you will only use minimal amounts to make it).
Yarn Colors: C1 – 609 (Rembrandt, dark brown), C2 – 625 (Kandinsky, mint green), C3 – 641 (Van Gogh, mustard color), C4 – 627 (Cezanne, turquoise)
Hook Size: 4.00mm (USA-G)
Gauge: Worked with 4mm hook using Scheepjes yarn. 19 sts x 10 rows = 4 x 4 inches or 10 x 10 cm
Gauge Directions: US G hook: ch 19 + 2, dc in 3rd ch from hook, and into each st to end, ch 2 – repeat until you reach 10 rows.
Skill Level: Beginner to Easy
Tips & Tricks:
- Spike stitches: Please see this write up about spike stitches by Lila Björn Crochet. She does a great job of explaining them.
- This design is based on the measurement of your head from forehead to base of neck in the back. My head measures 23”, so with this yarn, I chained 88, which measures about 21.5” or 54.5cm. If you use a different yarn, please account for stretch or lack thereof and increase or decrease stitches accordingly. Work in multiples of 2 + 2 for your starting turn chain. In these instructions, I will be referring to my measurements, using 88 chains +2.
- It’s best to work the tails in as you go, it will save time later. I will indicate when to cut and not cut strands below. Unless otherwise indicated, the chains at the end of each row do not count as a stitch.
- This pattern is worked in both loops only, unless otherwise indicated.
- Colors are noted as C1, C2, C3, C4.
- Repeat– This means repeat the instructions between the asterisk.
- Correct way to Change Colors: Here is a great tutorial video on how to change color properly.
|sl st||slip stitch|
|*||* repeat from * across|
sc – single crochet: Insert hook in indicated stitch, yo, draw up a loop, yo, draw through both loops on hook.
dc – double crochet: yo, insert hook in indicated stitch, yo, draw up a loop, yo, draw through two loops, yo, draw through remaining loops on hook.
sp st – spike stitch: insert yarn in indicated stitch, yo, draw up a loop to same level as current row, yo, draw through both loops on hook (this is also known as a long single crochet stitch).

Make 2, we will sew them together.
Chain 88 + 2 (90 total) – or however many chains you need for your measurements + 2.
Row 1 (C1): Dc in 3rd ch from hook, and in remaining chains, change to C2, cut C1 – 88 dc.
Row 2 (C2): Ch 2, turn, (chain does not count as stitch, work tails in as you go), 2 dc in next st, *sk next st, 2 dc in next, repeat from * across (work the last 2 dc into the top of the ch-2 from R1), change to C3 – 88 dc.
Row 3 (C3): Ch 1, turn, sc in first 2 sts, *sc (in the space between the V of the 2dc from Row 3), sc in the next stitch repeat from * to end of row, change to C4 – 88 sc.
Row 4 (C4): Ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across, change to C3 – 88 sc.
Row 5 (C3): Ch 1, turn, sc in first st (video says first 2 sts, either is okay), spike stitch (check out the video tutorial for how to do a spike stitch) in next st of Row 4, *sk st (you are skipping the stitch behind the spike stitch), sc in next st, spike stitch in next, repeat from * across, ending with a sc – 88 sc.
Row 6 (C3): Ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across, change to C4 – 88 sc.
Row 7 (C4): Ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across – 88 sc.
Cut and weave in all remaining tails.
Lay pieces face up, with Row 7 touching each other. Using C3, whip stitch through both loops of each stitch on piece one and piece 2.
