Crochet Velvet Headband Pattern
If you have been looking for a quick headband crochet pattern for velvet yarn, then this pattern is it! This crochet headband is a beginner-friendly pattern that takes little time to crochet.
Since this velvet headband works up fast and uses only minimal yarn you can make quite a bit of these cuties with just one skein of yarn.

I hope you enjoy this easy headband pattern and Happy Crocheting!
The Velvet Yarn for This Headband
For this headband, I used Bernat Velvet Yarn in the color Cream, which is extremely soft and comes in a big skein size of 315 yards! Skeins with large yardages are always a positive when working crochet projects, so you know you’ll always have enough on hand to finish a pattern.
If you have ever worked with velvet yarn then you will know that it has a tendency to worm (or pull away) from the fabric and create loops. I figured out that the fewer loops you make with this yarn the better hence why this whole pattern is worked in single and half double crochets.
Even though it has this flaw I still love it anyway! This yarn is super soft and cozy which makes it a great one to make a winter accessory with. If you don’t mind working with basic stitches then this is the yarn for you!
I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook even though the yarn label said to use a 6.5 mm. Again, the problem with the bigger hook was worming and with trial and error realized that a smaller hook is ALWAYS better.
How to Change the Size of a Crochet Headband
To change sizes in this pattern you will just crochet an even number chain to the size you need. I wrote up an article about how to make a headband/ ear warmer to any size, which will be a great reference for this pattern.
Also, I have included each size written down below in the pattern. See the pattern notes and instructions for help.

Hi, thanks for sharing this lovely pattern. Can you please advise the name of the color used?
You are welcome! I used the color Cream for this headband, Happy Crocheting!
Good morning. I have a lot of different types of yarn and would prefer not to purchase any more at this time. So, what yarn can be substituted for velvet yarn?
Any bulky 5 yarn you have on hand will work great for this headband.
Do you chain 2 for every row? Or do you just go to the next row?
It is worked in a continuous round the whole way through. 🙂 Happy Crocheting!
