This simple chevron headband is easy to make in any size. The repetitive crochet motion is relaxing and soothing, and you will love making headbands for all the women and girls and your family! Crochet chevron is much easier to work than you think, you will love making these sweet, easy crochet headbands.
That past few weeks have been tough. My adorable, smiling baby has turned into a sassy, attitude-filled toddler, and my sweet, loving 4-year-old is in a constant power-struggle with said toddler. So Sis found a toy that The Boy hasn’t looked at in 2 years? It’s now THE MOST FUN TOY EVER. He naturally snatches it from her chubby hands; Sis retaliates with an extremely loud and high-pitched shriek, causing painful ear ringing for anyone in the vicinity. I breathe a sigh after both are tucked soundly in their beds, not knowing whether to jump for joy or collapse into bed. Time to crochet has been less frequent, which is not great since it is rather cathartic for me.
Heaven help me.
Last night I was able to catch up on the latest episode of The Walking Dead (which ends on a horrifying cliff hanger), and finished up this adorable (and easy) Simple Chevron Headband I started a few weeks ago. I must say, I LOVE how it turned out. It works up pretty quick even though it’s made with fingering weight yarn. I found easy repetition soothing for my frayed nerves. I might need to make one every night.

Continue this pattern until your band is about 18″, it should have 17 chevrons (4 rows per chevron).
Note: To you make the color changes easier and less noticeable, bring up your color after the second row. For instance, after the 2nd row of the chevron, grab your opposite color and work it into the last st. Then turn, and continue using the same color. This brings up the color so it isn’t as far of a reach when you use in again. Just be sure to bring up your yarn on the same side, so it can be on the inside of the headband when it’s finished.
To finished the headband, cut a length of fold-over elastic about 3″ long and sew it to both ends of your headband, closing it.
You can use your machine or hand sew it. I opted to hand sew it. It doesn’t look pretty from the back, but you can’t see my uneven stitches from the front.
This is the same pattern, but you will work less rows. It should be about 13″ and have 12 chevrons.
Cut your elastic to about 3.5″ – 4″ in length and sew it in place.
How could that innocent, adorable face be so sassy?!
Maybe it just means she will be an outgoing woman with leadership skills.
I’ll take it.
Hi Bethany, this is a lovely band. I am currently trying to do it, but I don’t understand what you mean by Sc2Tog.
What does together (I think) means?
Thank you so much!
Hi Teresa! That is the abbreviation for a sc decrease. You can learn how to do that here:
Thank you Bethany! I got it and it is really easy and beautiful!
Glad you got it!
Thank you Bethany! I got it and it is really easy and beautiful!
It means single crochet two together.That way you shorten the number of stitches.

I’m just curious if your planing on doing a tutorial. I’ve watched most of your videos and they’ve helped me so much. I’m still pretty new to crochet. The color switching has me confused. I have a 5 year old and a 10 month old that I would Love both to have one!!!
I can add it to my list!
This is a beautiful headband! Thanks so much for sharing your crochet pattern with us at Merry Monday.
Sweet! I have a brand new baby granddaughter born March 29! My daughter had preeclampsia, so they had to take Gigi six weeks early! But, believe it or not she was 5 lb 5 oz, 18.5″ long, and didn’t need a respirator or incubator! She is on a feeding tube now because she’d rather eat than sleep. :)
I would love to make a couple of these for her! They should go super quick since her tiny head is under 13″! She has a two year old sister and I have two other granddaughters, six and four. The older ones are here in Arizona near me, the baby and two year old are, alas, in Atlanta. My other daughter Nd I did fly there, since my daughter was very ill. Lucky for us, we actually got to HOLD baby Genevieve!
So now, a question. I have a ton of stretchy yarn (can’t think of the name right now, comes in very small balls) do you think it would work with this pattern instead of using fingering and elastic?
Wow! So glad Little Miss was so healthy despite her prematurity, what a blessing! Yes, these work up very quickly, and with a tiny little head, they will be even faster! What is the brand of yarn is your stretchy yarn? I have never used stretchy before and I would LOVE to try it! I haven’t worked with it, but if it gives a nice stretch, it should work beautifully. Since this pattern is quite quick, I think it would definitely be worth a try. Let me know how it turns out, I am interested to see your finished headband!
I found it! It’s Cascade Fixation. I bought a bunch of different colors several years ago when my six year old granddaughter was a baby. Glad to see its still available.
Awesome! thanks for taking the time to let me know, I’m excited to check it out!
I love this pattern so quick and easy :) and on the sassy toddler note, mine was SO sassy and attitudinal as a child but now she is a strong amazing young woman/soldier. I say as long as she learns respect, let her be a strong personality.
Thank you! I am SO glad you like it! I love that you said that. I want her to be confident and be a leader like yours, so I hope I can show her the right way :)
Very cute have some girls that would love these. Is there a way to print this? I’m rather old-school and like to have my printed patterns.
Thank you! You can highlight, right click and click Print.
Cindy, You can also Highlight, right click, copy. Then go to your word processor click the cursor on, then right click and Paste. You can substitute Ctrl-c for the copy and Ctrl-p for the paste. I do this often. This way you can change the font and the size of the words and change the size of the pictures.
