HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
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.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED:
FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (FSC):
Step 1: Ch 2 st.
Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Step 3: Insert hook into previous “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.
TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED:
CHANGING COLOR WITH DIFFERENT COLOR ON DIFFERENT ROWS:
When working with different colors on different rows, you’ll never finish the last stitch on the last row with one color, with the color you where working with.
Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.
Repeat this for every row you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.
CROCHETING IN THE BACK LOOP:
This means that you will not crochet through the whole stitch as usual. A typical stitch contains two loops. One in the front, nearest you, and another stitch in the back, furthest away from you. One is called the front loop (the one nearest you), the other one the back loop, the one furthest away from you.
For this pattern you will crochet single crochet stitches and treble crochet stitches through the back loop.
The first 14 rows is made as the inside of the headband (double brim), then the final rows will end up as the outside. Please note that color A is the color that’s on the inside, while color B is the main color on the outside.
BRIM ON THE INSIDE:
Make 63 (70) 77 (84) st with CA using the FSC technique, sl st in 1st st. Be careful not to twist the stitches.
Row 1 with CA: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), sc 1 in each FSC made, sl st in 1st ch from beg of round (= 63 (70) 77 (84) st).
Row 2 with CA: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), sc 1 in each st from prev round, sl st in 1st ch from beg of round (= 63 (70) 77 (84) st).
Row 3 – 14 with CA: Rep row 2 (= 63 (70) 77 (84) st).
Row 15 with CB: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), BLsc 1 in each st from prev round, sl st in 1st ch from beg of round (= 63 (70) 77 (84) st).
Row 16 with CB: Ch 3 (counts as 1st st), BLtr 1 in each st from prev round, sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (= 63 (70) 77 (84) st).
Row 17 with CB: Rep row 2.
Row 18 with CB: Ch 3 (counts as 1st st), tr 1 in each st from prev round, sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (= 63 (70) 77 (84) st).
Row 19-20: Rep row 17-18 every other row.
You will now have to fold the headband double, in a way that the right side faces outwards.
Row 21 with CB: Rep row 2, but go through both the stitches from row 20 & the other side of the FSC you made in the beginning.
Fasten off & cut yarn.
Fasten threads & weave in ends.
