To crochet the Bellus Headband I used scrap yarn, unfortunately I couldn’t remember the yarn name or brand. I think it’s a really good thing to use scrap yarn when you crochet & you can find ideas I’ve collected here.

Because of the fact that I didn’t know the yarn brand, I’ve searched for a substitute that works 100 % for this pattern. The final look might be different, but you could also use your own scrap yarn. 

If you’d like a substitute, you should try Rowan Felted Tweed Aran

The  Bellus Headband is designed with winter in mind. It’s the perfect pattern when you want to use some leftover yarn, because you don’t need much.

While the crochet Bellus Headband is a scrap yarn crochet project, it’s also made with Christmas in mind. The crochet headband is definitely a great gift for Christmas. First of all it doesn’t take too long to crochet, but still it has all the details that makes it an interesting gift.

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful patterns. The first one I am going to make is the Crochet Delicatus Headband and I am very excited to try my hand at doing these wonderful headbands. Thank you again. Bless you.

    • Thank you so much for your compliment, it means a lot! I hope you enjoy the Delicatus Headband!
      Feel free to comment & let me know if you have questions while you follow any patterns 🙂

  2. I love the look of the stitch! I am curious about the first row instructions. If I chain 21 and sc in the 3rd chain from the hook, I end up with 19 stitches, not 20. Please advise. Thanks and I look f ou reward to completing the headband.m

    • Hi,
      you will have 20 stitches if you crochet into the 3rd ch from hook, as the 2 chains skipped counts as last stitch on ch row and first stitch on row 1.

      Count for row 1 will then be 1 chain + 19.


  3. Thank you so much for sharing this quick make. I do have 1 question and it is probably a silly one. You mention in the supplies that you will need buttons, it doesn’t specify what size buttons needed. What size do you recommend? I have 3 sizes that I bought in bulk for patterns like this. I love the extra detail that it adds.

  4. I plan on making these and am thinking of finishing them with the twist instead of buttons. I’ll do some with buttons also but I like the idea of twist with these

  5. In the picture of this headband, it shows a tag that says (I think) “Joy of Motion”…which is your logo phrase. Where can I purchase tags like this with a saying I’d like for my headbands and other things I make for gifts?
