15 Minute Headband
The only thing better than free crochet patterns are quick and easy crochet patterns, like this 15 Minute Headband. These make great homemade gift ideas for birthdays, graduations, or just because.
This is also a great way to use up any leftover yarn you have in your stash. Whip a few of these up on your lunch hour, morning commute, or during a movie. Headbands are great because they're one of the few fashion accessories that are both practical and stylish.

My niece loves to wear headbands or at least she use to. Teenagers are so flippant and she may not use them anymore. This item here is so simple to make and if you are able to crochet a chain stitch you can make this in little to no time. So, even if my niece is no longer into headbands, no biggie.

My grand daughter seen this and asked me to make her one. This 15 minute Headband has been a hit! At first I wasn't sure how to put it all together, my eyes sight isn't the best for reading words in pictures, so my grand daughter read it to me and wow, what a great idea of using a book to wrap the chain around to make a even crocheted headband. I ended up making two for her and she watched and learned how to make some for herself. Love, love when that happens. So a big thank you for sharing this free crochet headband pattern.

You are so right! This is a stylish and practical. This is one of those simple ideas that I think to myself, now why didn't I think of that! I have hair that needs taming and this is a great option and without a price tag. This 15 minute headband can be made with any left over material you may have on hand. Lets get to it.

I really like the look of this headband, but Ive not had much success with keeping similarly shaped creations once theyre on my head. Its just a series of chains so just about anyone can work this up. I do like one of the commenters remarks about working this up as a chunky scarf, too. I do think it would make an interesting cowl.

What an amazingly simple but beautiful pattern! It is sooo practical too! I can see soooo many possibilities for these like making them with a couple of colors for sports teams, a rainbow of these as a gift set, or sparkly ones as gifts for a bridal party! The possibilities are limited only by our choice in yarn and our imaginations! Thanks for the pattern!

This would make a great last minute gift because it can made so quickly. I love these types of headbands because they look great with hair pulled up and they are so quick to make that you could make a whole set in every color. I will definitely be making these for me and my daughter.

Sure is cute. I would agree that it is not really a pattern, per se, but it is crochet- and we are on a crochet website right now. So, anything goes! That is what I like about browsing for pieces to make- you never know what you are going to find. FOr this headband, I think she created something for herself out of sheer necessity. She used her smarts and figured out how to do it and she is sharing it with all of us. I happen to think it looks darling!

This is just perfect. It's easy, fast and cute, not to mention economical. I always have left over yarn and nothing to use it on. I have a grand daughter with long hair that would love to have a bunch of these in different colors. As long as two of them are done in pink and purple. Thank you for sharing this.

This has to be one of the simplest headbands to make! The patterns just calls for crocheting a long chain, wrapping it around a couple of times and tying it with another piece of yarn to make the knot. I am going to make a couple of these in different colors using leftover yarn.

I'm sorry, but this is not a pattern! It looks cute, but there are no detailed instructions. No directions on what to do with ends or how to secure the yarn that is wrapped around the chains to look like a knot.

Susan, I hope you were able to access the pattern eventually, not sure if there was a problem with it in the past. If you go to this link http//bwalker8706.blogspot.com/2012/12/last-minute == -gift-idea-knotted-headband.html the author of the pattern gives instructions on how to construct the headband, tie the yarn around the chains and secure it as well. Hope that helps.
