It’s another day & another opportunity to share a FREE crochet pattern, the crochet Headband with Cross Pattern.
This crochet headband offers lot’s of texture & is a quick crochet make as it uses super bulky yarn.
The stitch pattern is quite easy, as I’m happy to say it’s mostly half double crochet stitches.

The crochet Headband with Cross Pattern was made with a yarn from Drops called Eskimo.
What’s so great about the Eskimo yarn is the fact that it is yarn weight 6, but doesn’t feel way to thick. It’s still great to work with.
It’s also really soft & warm, which makes it a pleasure to use & wear. That also means it’s great to keep you warm, such as for a ear warmer like the crochet Headband with Cross Pattern.
You can find the yarn here.
THE PERFECT HEADBAND TO LEARN A NEW STITCH
Did you see the texture of the headband?
It’s such a lovely texture & nothing is better than to make a headband when you’re exploring a new crochet stitch.
It doesn’t require any fancy increases or decreases & you can finish in just an hour or two.

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.

- Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
- Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).

- Make the headband circumference wider or narrower by adding/reducing extra stitches before you start row 1, added/reduced by 3 stitches at a time. When you decide on circumference, remember that you’ll add a few rows as “botton” rows.
