Hippie Headband


"Keep your hair out of your face in style this summer with this boho chic, tie-back style headband. These are a fun accessory for music festivals and summer concerts, or even just for keeping your hair in check while you task around the house. Make it in a worsted weight cotton yarn for a breatheable summer headband. If you'd like to use this as a cold-weather headband, go ahead and make it in an acrylic or wool-blend yarn. As written, pattern is adult one size fits all - since it is a tie-back style the sizing is very generous. Happy hooking!"

I dont know if this is truly a hippie headband, but I really like the ties instead of just a stretchy band. I wear headbands on a regular basis, and will make this one up as soon as I can. AND I will also follow Ikets excellent suggestion about the strap, too. Working a Half Double is always more sturdy than a Double. I might try one using Singles on the straps, too.

This was a very easy headband to make. I made one in roughly 30 minutes, using about 80 yards of yarn. I like the way the mesh section looks. The added single crochet rows between the double crochet rows gives it a stronger structure too. I think I would prefer half double crochet rather than double crochet for the straps though. I think it would hold up better.

This looks like a very quick project which I love. Anything that I can finish in a day is great. I love the feeling of actually finishing something and sometimes big projects are so repetitive that I get bored and it ends up sitting in the closet for months until I decide to work on it again. I love headbands anyway. Me and my daughter wear them all the time.
