Pattern: Crochet Plaid Headband

I had so much fun making Whistle and Ivy’s plaid hat, that I decided to whip up a matching crochet plaid headband for my daughter! This pattern is kid’s size but is easily made larger or smaller by changing the beginning chain length. Just be sure to use multiples of 6. Definitely head over to the Whistle and Ivy blog to see her awesome tutorial on how to achieve this plaid look.



Worsted weight yarn in 3 colors (I used Red, Dark Red and black)

5mm crochet hook

yarn needle



Chain 54 with black

Join to beginning chain with a sl st,  being careful not to twist.

Round 1: CH 2, dc into the same ch. dc into next ch. dc a 3rd time into the next ch but on the last pull through, Join your second color (dark red). Make a dc into the following 3 chains using dark red(finishing the 3rd dc with black). Alternate every three stitches with these two colors. Join with a sl st to the top of the first dc.

Round 2: Join Red. Ch 2. dc into same stitch, dc into the following 2 stitches and on the last pull through pick up dark red. Dc 3 times in the following 3 stitches, and use red on the final pull through. Repeat around. Sl St to top of first Dc.

Rounds 3-5:  Alternate rounds 1 and 2.

Round 6: slip stitch around. Do not tie off.

After slip stitching around Chain 75, and wrap the length of the chain around the headband to create the little knot. Tie off and weave in ends.


To make your headband larger, just add more chains in the beginning (in multiples of 6).







SOOO cute right?!?!
