Sweetie Pie Bow Headband Crochet Pattern

Lately I've been devoting my time to learning more and more crochet stitches that closely resemble the appearance of some of my favourite knitting stitches.
My latest endeavour has been mastering the art of the tunisian knit stitch, and I've been loving every single second of it!
So to test out my new skills I decided to create yet another 1920's inspired pattern, a sweetie pie bow headband!
Have you learned any new crochet stitches or techniques of late?


What You'll Need
8.00mm Crochet Hook
6.00mm Crochet Hook
100g DK Yarn {8ply}
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size 
This headband fits all sizes
{Easily adjustable, as explained in pattern}


~ Headband ~

Taking your 8.00mm crochet hook and DK yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 18 Chains.
Row 1~ Skip 1 chain. Crochet Tunisian Knit Stitch into every chain across.
Row 2 - 78~, Crochet Tunisian Knit Stitch into every stitch across. {Note: I have an easy video tutorial below on how to crochet the tunisian knit stitch.}


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


~ Bow ~

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

Taking your 8.00mm crochet hook and DK yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 19 Chains.
Row 1~ Skip 1 chain. Crochet Tunisian Knit Stitch into every chain across.

Place the bow on the headband. Now wrap the knot strip around the center of the bow and around the back of the headband. Taking your tapestry needle, join the ends of the knot strip together.


Hope you all enjoyed this pattern for a darling bow headband!

  1. Thank you so much for this. With tunisian crochet I always have the problem that the edges curl terribly. How did you avoid that?
