To crochet this pattern I used 100 % Alpaca yarn. 

The reason behind my choice this time around was honestly the fact that I had some scrap yarn in my yarn stash. Using thin yarn for this project makes them easy & light to wear. 

The thin yarn also makes the broomstick lace stitch look amazing.

The crochet Delicatus Headband is designed with fall & winter in mind. Imagine keeping yourself warm & cozy on those cold days.

While the crochet Delicatus Headband is a great ego make, 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.

The crochet headband is also made with a double brim, & it will keep you warm throughout fall & winter season, while still looking good!

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. 






The Delicatus Headband crochet pattern is a pattern for a double brimmed warm winter headband. This headband pattern has a huge size range from 12 months to adult size.

Put this to use & keep yourself warm throughout fall & winter season. Give it your own look with your choice of colors.

What’s so great about this headband is the fact that it’s double brimmed. The beautiful broomstick lace stitch on the outside, & a tightly crocheted stitch on the inside.

  7. I love this stitch. I normally don’t like working with fingering weight, but I really want to do this one

    • Thank you! I understand what you mean, fingering weight yarn can be really time-consuming. But with this stitch, the rows grow fast.
