How wide should a Crochet Headband be?

A typical Crochet Headband should measure around 4 inches wide. You can always make them wider or skinnier if that is your preference.

Today’s pattern will create a Thick and Warm headband because we are using a super bulky yarn. To follow along this Free Crochet Headband Pattern you will need a #6 Super Bulky yarn like Wool Ease Thick and Quick yarn (the color I used here is called Blossom) and a N 10mm crochet hook. You don’t need much yarn at all, in fact yarn scraps will work fine here!

Here are the two crochet headbands side by side- this stitch has a little bit of give and stretches nicely. The yarn is cozy and warm and makes for a great ear warmer/ head band. I personally like using a variegated yarn for this, but my daughter asked for a pink one- and a mom knows better than to argue with a tween 😉
