beginner-friendly crochet granny square headband pattern

This is easily one of my favorite crochet projects to make. It whips up super quickly (in under an hour), and the color combo possibilities are endless. I also love that if I'm not really feeling a color combo, I can skip the color switching and just make it all one color!

I came up with this pattern about a year ago when I was looking for a '70s inspired crochet headband pattern, but couldn't seem to find any like I was imagining!

This pattern is:

  • beginner friendly
  • compatible with multiple types and weights of yarn
  • super customizable
  • great for adults and kids
  • FUN to make!!!

About the pattern:

The Granny Square Headband is a fun, 70's inspired headband that can be finished in under an hour! This pattern is beginner friendly, and is written in US terminology.

Weight 4 Yarn (3 colors)
Size H (5mm) Crochet Hook
Tapesty Needle

Stiches/Abbreviations Used:
CH - Chain
SL - Slip Stitch
SC - Single Crochet
DC - Double Crochet

This pattern is best suited for 100% cotton yarn. I used Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Cotton Yarn" in the colors Woods Print, Antique Gold, and Olive.

Lily Sugar'n Cream Yarn could work for this pattern, but it will result in a stiffer, more chunky headband. Acrylic yarn in weight 3 can also be used.

Fits standard adult head. Subtract one granny square for a child's size,or if you have a slightly smaller than average head.

You will need 3 colors of yarn (Colors A, B, and C)

If you want a solid-colored headband, simply use one color and omit the color changes.
