A free crochet headband pattern

The Asterid Headband is a free crochet headband pattern perfect for keeping your ears warm in chilly weather! This is made in a color-shifting yarn, so all the colorwork is done for you. It’s small enough to keep tucked in the pocket of your coat or jacket, so you can pull it out whenever needed. I love mine!

Where can I get this crochet headband pattern?

The headband crochet pattern is free right here in this post. I’ve also made an ad-free PDF that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. The paid PDF includes a hat pattern made in the same yarn and stitch pattern as the headband.

If you decide to use the free version, please bookmark this page and come back to it when you work on your project rather than trying to print or screenshot the page. Your time on this page helps me get paid for my work, so thank you!

If you prefer the ad-free PDF with the hat pattern included, purchase the PDF by clicking the button below for your preferred platform.

What materials will I need to crochet this headband?

This headband is made in Plymouth Gina, which is 100% wool, and comes in 109 yd skeins. It will take one skein to make a headband, two skeins to make a hat. If you want to make a slouchy hat in the largest size, you will need three skeins. You can buy that yarn from Amazon by clicking here.

The instructions to crochet the hat can be found only in the paid PDF, which you can purchase by clicking one of the buttons above.

In addition to yarn, you will need a size G (4 mm) crochet hook, or possibly a different size to match my gauge, if needed. My favorite crochet hooks are the Streamline Resin crochet hooks from Furl’s Fiberarts.

Lastly, you’ll need a tapestry needle to weave in your ends.

How to make a gauge swatch

Ch 19

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook (ch 2 does not count as a st), dc in each rem ch, turn — 17 sts.

Row 2: Sl st in first st (sl st counts as a st), *dc in next st, sl st in next st, repeat from * across, turn.

Row 3: Ch 2, dc in each st across, turn.

Rows 4-12: Alternate repeating Rows 2 and 3, ending with a Row 2 repeat.

This is the end of the gauge swatch instructions, but I do not recommend fastening off. You will need nearly the whole skein to complete the headband.

To block your gauge swatch, place a removable stitch marker in your last loop, soak your swatch in a small tub of water, roll in a towel and press to remove excess water, and lay out on a blocking board or similar surface to dry. Once it’s dry, measure to check your gauge.

After you are finished with your gauge swatch, unravel it, and use that yarn for your headband.

Rnd 3: Ch 2, dc in each st around, join to first st with sl st, turn.

Rnds 4-13: Alternate repeating Rnds 2 and 3. Fasten off.

Weave in all ends.

If you would prefer to make this headband into a hat the paid PDF available on Etsy and Ravelry has a coordinating hat pattern.
