Make your own crocheted knot creation with this free crochet headband pattern! This headband is a great project because it takes less than one skein of yarn and works up super quickly. Plus it gets some extra style points from a cute sailor knot up front.
- Darice Silky Soft Charcoal Gray Yarn (Or other worsted weight yarn)
- Crochet Hook Size H (5.00 mm)
- Yarn Needle
- Craft Scissors
Step One. Crochet strips.
I used a lemon peel stitch for my strips, which is created by alternating single crochet with double crochet and always working single crochet stitches in double crochet and vice versa. I love the texture this stitch creates.
Sailor Knot Headband Strips Pattern (Make Two)
Row 1: Start with a chain of 96 ch stitches. Work a sc into the second chain from the hook, dc in the next st, *sc, dc, repeat from * until you reach the end of the chain, ending with a sc stitch (95 stitches total, 48 sc & 47 dc).
Row 2: (This row will continue the lemon peel stitch pattern by alternating sc and dc stitches and by working sc into dc and dc into sc.) Ch 2, dc in the same st, sc in the next st, *dc, sc, repeat from * until you reach the end of the chain, ending with a dc stitch (95 stitches total, 48 dc & 47 sc).
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in the same st, dc in the next st, *sc, dc, repeat from * until you reach the end of the chain, ending with a sc stitch (95 stitches total, 48 sc & 47 dc).
Row 4: Repeat Row 2. Finish off, weave in ends.
When your strips are ready, it’s time to form the sailor knot! Follow the images below to help you form your knot. Start by forming a loop in one strip and lay it on top of the second strip. Weave one tail of the second strip over and then under the tails of the looped strip. Then weave that same tail over the front piece of the loop, under that same strip’s other tail, and back over the other side of the loop.
To finish off this crochet headband pattern, you will sew together the ends of the strips to create the headband. Wrap the headband around your head to check fit. If it is a bit too loose or tight, try adjusting your knot a bit.
Making sure the strips aren’t twisted, line up the ends of strips.
