The Perfect Yarn for This Head Band
I used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick from Lion Brand Yarn in the colorway Hudson bay, and this honestly is one of the most beautiful colors I have ever worked with in this line!
Thick & Quick is an 80% acrylic and 20% wool blend yarn that is easy to work with.
If you haven’t tried this one yet, then you most definitely should since it has a variety of yarn colors sure to please anyone!
(Click on the yarn image to explore the different color options!)
You’ll love how chunky this yarn is because yarn that is bulky means a project that crochets up fast. Another bonus is that it is available in quite a few different colors, all of which are beautiful!
Need a substitute yarn? You can use Thick & Quick, which is similar to Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, but doesn’t have any wool.
It is a great crochet headband for beginners who’d like to try a pattern that is a little more than just one stitch!
Just half double crochets and single crochet stitches are used. That’s it for the entire headband pattern. If you can crochet those two basic stitches, then you’ll be set to make this headband!
Single Crochet (sc):
- Insert hook from front to back in the second chain from the hook or designated stitch
- Bring the yarn over (Yo) the hook and pull the yarn back through the chain (or stitch) from back to front (2 loops on hook).
- Yo and pull through both loops on the hook.
Half Double Crochet (hdc):
- Yo (yarn over) insert hook from front to back of the designated stitch, yo the hook and pick up a loop.
- Yo the hook and pull back through all three loops on the hook.
This puffed crochet headband pattern is designed in almost the same stitch sequence as The Charlotte Blanket, except for this headband we will be using half double crochet’s and be working in the round.
If you are a beginner, you can work this pattern fast and have a cozy and warm headband to show off to all your friends. This beginner crochet headband pattern is easy to crochet! Promise.

Puffed Crochet Headband Pattern
Skill Level: Easy
- Crochet hook 9 mm
- Less than a skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Hudson Bay or any super bulky 6 yarns.
- Large yarn needle
- Measuring tape
- Each sc, hdc, hdc cluster is approximately 1.5″
- Gauge must be followed for proper fit
- When following gauge as written, the finished size is approx. 19″ circumference (unstretched / unworn) and 4″ tall which is perfect for a child.
- See below on how to make this headband bigger or smaller
- To make this headband larger or smaller use a starting CH in a multiple of 3 (ex 3,6,9,12,15, 18,21,24,27, 30,33,36,39, 42,45,48, etc.) and then follow the pattern as written decreasing or increasing rows as needed.
- Take a look at our headband and hat sizing chart for extra help on the correct sizing for teens, adults and more.
- I turned my headband inside out (as shown in pictures) because I liked the way the stitch definition looked, but either way would look good. If you’d like it to look exactly like the picture, turn your headband inside out when you are done.
- Written in standard US terms
- The skipped stitches/ch 1 do not count as stitches
