Turban Knot Headband Crochet Pattern

Not to brag or anything, but I honestly think I have the cutest little sister in the world!
I mean, just look at those bouncy curls, that beaming smile and those sparkly eyes.
She's Shirley Temple reincarnated!
And it's not just my biased opinion saying that, it's also every adorable little old lady that spots her at the shops. They always go on and on about her curls, but secretly I think they're just extremely jealous that she gets her curls for free and they have to pay for theirs haha.
But enough about my little cutie pie of a model, here is a brand new crochet pattern for you all to enjoy! :)



What You'll Need
5.00mm Crochet Hook
50g of 8ply {DK} Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size:
This headband fits all sizes.



~ Headband ~

Start of by taking your 5.00mm crochet hook and making a Slip Knot, then crochet 75 Chains. You can easily adjust this headband for a child by only chaining 65 chains.
Row 1~ Chain 3, skip 3 chains from your hook, then crochet Double Crochets all across into every chain.
Row 2~ Chain 2, then crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but only through the front loop. {This will create the appearance that the headband is ribbed}
Row 3~ Chain 2, the crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but through both loops.
Row 4~ Chain 2, then crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but only through the front loop.
Row 5~ Chain 2, the crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but through both loops.


Row 6~ Chain 2, then crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but only through the front loop.
Row 7~ Chain 2, the crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but through both loops.
Row 8~ Chain 2, then crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but only through the front loop.
Row 9~ Chain 2, the crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across but through both loops.


When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together, making sure that the ribbed side is on the inside. Once the band is slip stitched together fold the slip stitched part towards the inside and the ribbed side towards the outside.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.


~ Knot ~
Before you start crocheting your knot you'll need to create a ruched section at the front of your headband. Taking your fingers, pinch together rows 3-6 on the inside of your headband and sew them together. Your knot will later on be sewed over this ruched section. Below are photos of how the ruched section should look on the inside, and outside.


Start of by taking your 5.00mm crochet hook and making a Slip Knot, then crochet 6 Chains
Row 1~  Chain 2, skip 2 chains from your hook, then crochet Half Double Crochets all across into every chain.


Row 2,3,4,5,6,7,8~ Chain 2, then crochet Half Double Crochets into every stitch across.
Once the strip is finished you will need to wrap it around the ruched area you created previously.

Now taking your tapestry/wool needle sew the two ends of your strip together at the back. Once the knot is sewed onto your headband fasten off, and weave in any loose ends underneath the knot.



And you're done! I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial,
if you have any questions, comment away! 
If you did crochet this headband, please post a photo of your creation 
onto my Facebook Page, I'd love to see it.
Have a great day crocheting,

    1. If you use 2 strands at the same time.
      Otherwise you'll need to add more base chains, and rows to compensate for using thinner yarn.

  6. Does this pattern only fit children or is it also adult size?

    1. This headband can easily be adjusted to fit a child by only chaining 65 base chains, instead of 75.

  9. Hi :) what if I need to make this for a 6 month old baby? How many chains would I need?

    1. The average 6 month old baby's head is 14" to 15". So just crochet chains till you reach that length.
      Hope this helps!

  11. Hello! I came across this pattern and I really like it. I just have a question: how do you connect/sew the ends of the headband together? I know that in your pattern, you said to slip stitch and make sure that the ribbed side is inside, but could you still clarify or give other tips. So sorry, I'm still lil new at crocheting, but I'm loving how the headband is turning out so far, just need to connect the ends.

    1. Hello,
      I just slip stitched the ends together, I don't really have any tips, other than the be sure to slip stitch them together evenly.
      You could also just sew them together if you'd like. There is no right or wrong way :)

  12. Hello! Cute headband! Quick question: does the chain 3 in row 1 count as a DC and the chain 2 in rows 2-9 count as a HD? Like after finishing the first row of DC, would we HD until we reach the very last DC (the chain 3) and HD in the last HD (the chain 2) of the other rows?

  13. Are there suppose to be 75 stitches for each row of the headband and 6 stitches for each row of the knot?
