Supplies Needed:

  • Headband (try to pick something that is smooth and easy to crochet around.
  • Yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in the "Grenadine" colorway)
  • Crochet Hook (I used an 5.5 mm "I" crochet hook)
  • Scissors 
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Optional: embellishments to decorate your headband 

How to Crochet Around a Headband:

Tie a small knot onto one end of the headband with the yarn.

Work a series of single crochets around the headband, pushing them over so they are nice and dense, don't allow any of the headband underneath to show.

Once headband is covered, fasten off and weave in ends.  

To keep yarn from sliding off the edge, try adding a tiny drop of hot glue to either side to keep everything in place.

You can wear it as is or embellish if you like too!
