1920's Lace Headband Crochet Pattern

One of my favourite things about fashion, is that it gives us all the ability to declare to the world who we are, without uttering a single word.
From leopard print pants and faux fur to brightly coloured heels and boho headbands, the list of opportunities to express yourself through fashion is endless!
I myself am a great lover of any dainty floral pattern or better yet, a bit of delicate lace... Basically anything 1920's inspired!
So, if you could sum up your fashion style in one word, what would it be? Let me know in the comments below!



What You'll Need
5.00mm Crochet Hook
70g DK Yarn {8ply} - I used Panda Magnum Soft
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size

Special Stitch
Catherine Wheel Stitch - Video Tutorial


Taking your 5.00mm crochet hook and DK yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 101 Chains. {Note: Add or take away sets of 10 foundation chains if you'd like to create a smaller or bigger size.}
Row 1~ Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the second chain from your hook. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 100 chains. You should have 101 stitches now.
Row 2~ Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next stitch. *Skip 3 stitches, then crochet 7 Double Crochets into the next stitch. Skip 3 stitches, then crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Repeat from the * all across, making sure to crochet 1 Single Crochet in the last 2 stitches instead of the last 3 stitches.


Row 3~ Chain 2, then crochet 4 Double Crochets Together in the same stitch and across the next 3 stitches (You can find a helpful video tutorial of the Catherine Wheel Stitch below, which includes a 4 Double Crochets Together stitch tutorial).


*Chain 3. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Chain 3, then crochet 7 Double Crochets Together.  (You can find a helpful video tutorial of the Catherine Wheel Stitch above, which includes a 7 Double Crochets Together stitch tutorial).
Repeat from the * all across, making sure to crochet 4 Double Crochets Together in the last 4 stitches, instead of crocheting 7 Double Crochets Together.
Row 4~ Chain 2. Then crochet 4 Double Crochets into the space/hole in the middle of the 4 Double Crochets Together stitch you created in the previous row. *Skip Chain 3 space made in the previous row, then crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Skip Chain 3 space. Then crochet 7 Double Crochets into the space/hole in the middle of the 7 Double Crochets Together stitch you created in the previous row. Repeat from the * all across, making sure to crochet 4 Double Crochets into the space/hole in the middle of the 4 Double Crochets Together stitch you created in the previous row.
Row 5~ Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next stitch. *Chain 3, then crochet 7 Double Crochets TogetherChain 3. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 3 stitches. Repeat from the * all across, making sure to crochet 1 Single Crochet in the last 2 stitches instead of the last 3 stitches.
Row 6 - 9~ Repeat rows 2 - 5 once.
Row 10 - 11~ Repeat rows 2 - 3 once.
Row 12~ Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the same stitch. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into every stitch/chain across.

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.


Hope you all enjoyed this dainty pattern!

  1. Thanks so much for the lovely free pattern! I had to start it tonight. Got through row 8 and will finish tomorrow. Found one small typo: Row 6-11 should read Row 6-9 if I'm not mistaken. I'm really enjoying making this. :)

  5. THANK YOU for an EASY-to-UNDERSTAND pattern! I have crocheted my whole life, but still have a hard time reading patterns, and prefer to just "wing it." I struggle reading all the codes: SC (single crochet or slip stitch?), DC, TLC, ACDC, haha.... after awhile I am totally OC-ADHD!!! What a difference seeing the word: "Single Crochet" made.... who knew. I am starting a purple one for my fashion-forward, yet totally feminine 20-something daughter!
    Thank you Olivia, you are truly a HONEY for posting this!
    Merry Merry!

    2. Hi there, I have definitely been trying to make this pattern but with no avail. I live in Canada so I had to convert the yarn type you were using as we do not sell this brand or type here. I used a #3 weight light yarn by Red Hart Brand, with the 5.00mm hook, but the work still comes out bulky and not delicate looking at all. :( Was my conversion wrong? Should I be using a lighter weight yarn? a #2 or #1 perhaps? Any suggestions would be great as I'd like to make at least 5 of these for Christmas Gifts for friends this year.

    3. Hello Jane,

      It should be giving the same result, since you're using the right weight! I'm not sure why it's not looking the same, sorry!
      Wish I could have helped more,

    4. I'm new to crochet so I'm hopeless when selecting yarn. I found this website to help me with yarn selection. Maybe it will help. http://yarnsub.com/

  6. Hi, I love this look but I'm having a question about the first row. Chain 101, sc in the second chain should give you 100 sts. So should I be chaining 102? Or should I be ending the row with 100 sts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if I read the pattern correctly, you would chain 101 and then to begin row 1 you would chain one and start your single crochets. Effectively, you will be changing 102 and then begin your single crochets in second chain from the hook.

    2. On row four it says to crochet into the space or hole of the previous rows 7 double crochet together. I am so confused, am I suppose to just crochet into the middle of those previous stitches or is there a specific space/

      Delete
    3. I am confused as well...where exactly am I supposed to place the stitches? I made it past the 4 double crochets in the space/hole in the middle of the 4 double crochets together stitches. I am stuck at the 7 double crochets in the space/hole in the middle of the 7 double crochets together stitches. HELLLP, please!

      Delete
    4. Did you figure it out or get a response? I'm stuck there also.

  9. A friend of mine asked for a headband and scarf. I just finished the headband using this pattern and now I'm using it to create a scarf...really excited to see how it comes out! Thanks for sharing. It really is a beautiful pattern.

  10. Thanks for this pattern, it's lovely, I'm making it in pastel green. Would you have this pattern as a chart ? I'm not sure about my row 3 ( my 7dctog starts from the top of the 7 dc cluster of previous row ) and I think i might see it more clearly as a chart. I'm also confused by "same stitch", when it's the beginning of a row, do you mean first stitch of the row, bottom of the turning chain ?
    Sorry, I hope my questions make sense !!

    1. I got stuck at the same place! Was not sure if the 7 Double Crochet Together is supposed to start at the first stitch of the 7 Double Crochet cluster? A chart pattern or YouTube tutorial would be really helpful . . . It is such a beautiful pattern. Thank you for sharing it Olivia, I just hope I can get it right :-)

  11. Hi Olivia. Chained the 101 with worsted weight and a 5 mm hook, and it is huge. About right at 81. My concern is that I'm not a loose crocheter, and I have a pretty big head. Should I continue or go back and use a smaller hook? Thanks Kris

    1. Hello Kris,

      If the 81 chains is the right for your head, it will work well! Your crochet tension could be looser than mine, and your yarn might be slightly heavier weight too.
      Hope this helps,

      Olivia

    2. I've got a tiny head and i tend to crochet pretty tight, i used 81 chains and the wrap fit perfectly on my tiny head.

  13. It's a very pretty pattern. I am an experienced chrocheter and had difficulty to understand the pattern. You say I must repeat row 2-5 but that is not possible. I repeated row 4-5 until the headband was wide enough. I think there is a mistake in your pattern and it was also difficult to understand what you meant by crocheting 7 dc together. Your video wasn't a great help.

    1. Margaret, the 7dc together is similar to doing a DC decrease however, instead of DC into 2 stitches then joining together, you're doing it through 7 so you will have 8 loops on your hook before you yarn over and draw through all 8 of them. It will look like an inverted shell (which is the point). With a shell you put 7 DC into 1 stitch, here you are making 7 DC culminate in 1 stitch. I had to watch the video to understand what was meant in the directions. Normally I see this referred to as a "cluster".

      Delete
  14. I am currently working row 5 but my pattern is not laying flat and has a bobble effect on the 7 DC worked into the single stitch on Row 4. I believe this is due to the skipping of the chain 3 spaces. Has anyone else had this issue? My work is starting to become crescent shaped. Not sure if this will resolve by the end. Suggestions? I also found the pattern to be too large at 101 chains and decreased by 10 as the pattern advises but now I feel perhaps I should have decreased by 20 given the size of the work so far.

  15. Really wish there was a gauge or at least a finished diameter size so you can adjust if needed.
