If you browse through the great patterns for crocheting baby headbands, you will find the right ear protection for every occasion. If you want to crochet a baby headband for the christening, it should look elegant and match the christening robe. A self-crocheted baby headband for boys, on the other hand, which your little explorer of the world wears in the kindergarten, should look rather cheeky and mischievous.
To distinguish it from the baby headband for girls, you can sew a flower on for the little princess. Or you can crochet a baby headband with a bow for the young lady. There are no limits to your imagination. The more unconventional your crocheted baby headband is, the more individual it is. In our crochet manuals for baby headbands you can find wonderful hair bands, which you can either crochet exactly as stated in the tutorial or creatively supplement with your own ideas.
If you are using crocheting tutorials for the first time, the self-crocheted baby headband is not a bad project for beginners. However, you should not immediately choose an elegant headdress for the christening or any other festivity. Because the more exclusive headbands are usually made with more difficult stitch combinations. But among the different crocheting patterns for baby headbands by Crazypatterns you will of course also find simple tutorials for beginners.
It is best to choose an ear protector that is mainly made of single (US: double) crochet stitches. To make it more suitable for children, you can use different colours. If you count yourself among the crochet pros, you will of course have no problems making an elaborate baby headband. Advanced crocheters won't break a sweat with any of the great tutorials for crocheting baby headbands. But they can use a lot of their knowledge in some projects. At Crazypatterns you can find tutorials for every skill level and taste.
Even though headbands decorated with wiggly eyes or colourful buttons might look a bit funnier, you should avoid this accessory, especially for the very youngest. If one of the small parts accidentally comes loose and is swallowed, the consequences can be disastrous. The safest thing to do is to crochet all the individual parts and then either sew or crochet them together. Even with crochet yarn, not every wool is suitable for crocheted baby headbands.
You not only have to make sure that the yarn is easy to wash. The wool must also be skin-friendly so that it doesn't scratch your little darling's still very sensitive skin. If you keep this in mind, you should generally use the materials below to crochet a baby headband.
Has it ever happened to you that while browsing the internet you found a wonderful tutorial for crocheting a baby headband and finally had to realize disappointed that it is not offered in English? Of course this is a bit annoying, because before you can really start with the handicraft, you first have to try to translate the tutorial. But because especially when crocheting, many technical terms can appear, this often proves to be extremely difficult.
If you choose a crochet pattern for the baby's headband with Crazypatterns, you won't have to struggle with such problems. Because all manuals are in English. This way, you don't have to use an encyclopaedia or a translation help from the internet. After the download you can immediately give free rein to your creativity and creative urge and get started.
Before you start crocheting, you choose the patterns that you like and that correspond to the occasion for which the baby headband you want to crochet is intended. Just open our overview page and you will not only see photos of the finished headbands, but you can also find out right away whether it is a free crochet pattern for the baby headband or whether you have to pay a small amount of money for it. If you have to pay for the manual, the download is only available after we have received the money. But then, you can download the selected tutorial as often as you want without having to pay for it again.
However, it is recommended to save the manual on your computer. Then you can open and view it even if you do not have internet access. In addition to the detailed instructions for crocheting baby headbands, you will usually find information about a suitable crochet thread. You will be given recommendations on the size of the crochet hook. And sometimes there is even a colour reference for the wool. Whether you follow these tips, though, is of course up to you. However, if you decide on a different yarn, you may have to adjust the number of stitches.
Even though your little darling should look as chic as possible at the baptism, the head protection should not be neglected. Because a cap seldom looks elegant, but the ears should still be beautifully wrapped up, a headband is recommended. If you want to crochet a baby headband for the christening, you should pay attention to a few small things. First of all you have to make sure that the colour of your yarn matches the colour of the christening robe. Usually it will be white. In addition, the head protection should be a bit more elegant.
A crocheted headband only in single (US: double) crochet stitches looks a bit coarse for this occasion. And this brings us to the next point: The wool you use should not be too thick either. Because the thinner your yarn is, the more filigree you can crochet. In addition, decorate the baby headband for the christening with a white fabric bow that you can sew on with a thin thread.
To crochet a baby headband with a bow, you have different possibilities. Either you crochet the bow separately and sew it on afterwards, or you design the headband so that it looks like a bow itself. The second variation is the easier one. You only have to make a straight band in the width you want. Then you crochet a short, wide ribbon, gather the front of the headband together and sew the short ribbon over it so that it looks like the knot of a bow.
For the first variation you also make a straight headband. You can learn how to make the small bow for sewing on in the respective pattern for the baby headband. Where you sew it on is then of course up to you. You can crochet your bow in the same colour as the headband, or you can set a colour accent and choose another colour.
Of course you can make it easy for yourself and simply crochet the baby headband for girls in pink wool. But it is nicer if you turn the headwear into a headdress and decorate the headband. For girls there are different accessories. You can decorate the crocheted baby headband for girls with little crocheted flowers. You can either attach a crochet bow or sew on a fabric bow. You can attach one or more crocheted hearts or you can decorate the headdress with a butterfly or a bee.
If you want to crochet a baby headband for girls that is as chic as possible, you can possibly use a glitter yarn. And if your "baby" is a toddler who is already older than three years, you can also work small beads into your crochet work. Also consider that the older the child is, the more pronounced his or her personal taste is. There are already fashion trends among little girls in the day-care centre, too. So ask your princess before you start crocheting what colour she wants.
Crocheting a baby headband for boys is not as easy as for girls. But that is not because it would be more complicated to make, but because it must not look too feminine. Therefore, you should limit yourself to single (US: double) crochet stitches. This makes the headgear look rougher and more suitable for the male sex. For a very small boy, choose light blue for the baby's headband. If the child is already a little older, you can choose bright colours.
A crocheted baby headband for boys can have colourful stripes. But it can also have an appliqué. A crocheted car or crocheted stars are perfect for the boyish headdress. To personalize the headband you can also crochet a short first name or at least the first letters of the little man's first and last name. And if your crocheting skills let you down, just crochet the headband and decorate it with pretty little fabric patches.
Depending on for whom or for which occasion your self-crocheted baby headband is intended, you use a different crocheting technique. While simple headbands, which you decorate with an appliqué, are usually worked in single (US: double) crochet stitches, you may also need double (US: treble), half double (US: treble), treble (US: double treble) or double treble (US: triple treble) crochet stitches for a filigree baby headband for a baptism. If you want to decorate the headdress with a crocheted appliqué, the magic ring is often required.
If you have mastered the following techniques, you should be prepared for the project of crocheting a baby headband. If you lack the knowledge required in your patterns you can look it up in our free crochet lexicon.
