Crochet and Knit Headband Patterns: Millie and Lily Headbands

Knit and Crochet headband patterns by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

Hi friends! Today marks a special occasion! Today I am publishing pattern numbers 100 and 101 together! These are crochet and knit versions of essentially the same headband!

This design was inspired by the request of a friend. A friend asked me to make a headband for her in exchange for sugar cookies she was making and decorating for me. I love a good swap, don’t you?!

So, I am happy to share with you my newest patterns: Millie Headband (the pink, crochet version) and Lily Headband (the blue-ish, knit version).

Both headbands are made in Ancient Arts Yarns Superwash dk. The crochet version, Millie, is made in colorway “Kitten Nose Pink” and the knit version, Lily, is made in “Scottish Mist.” Each headband takes part of just one skein. In fact, if you make them a little smaller around than I did, you might even be able to make two headbands with one skein of this lovely yarn!

The knit headband, Lily, uses Size 6 (4 mm) knitting needles. The crochet headband, Millie, uses an H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook. You’ll also need a tapestry needle, whichever version you make.

The knit headband is about 4 3/4″ [12 cm] wide and 18″ [45.5 cm] around. The crochet headband is just a touch wider at 5″ [12.5 cm] and the same circumference. These 18″ [45.5 cm] headbands stretch to fit a range of head sizes, including mine, at 23″ [58.5 cm]. As you can see in the photos, Each headband fit me, and my daughters ages 8 to 14. You can make your headband 2″ to 6″ [5 to 15 cm] smaller around than the head circumference of the recipient, depending on how tightly you’d like it to fit.

Each headband has a little cable detail on it. The knit headband uses a mock cable, so you won’t need a cable needle for this. The crochet headband uses a small, simple cable, so you’ll want to know how to make post stitches. See my tutorial if you are unfamiliar with this technique.

Each of these patterns costs just $3.00 on Ravelry, Etsy, and LoveCrafts. You can purchase it on your favorite site. Click the site name to go to the pattern page there.

Happy stitching!
