Crochet A Knit Like Headband
Hello everyone, I hope you are well! Today I am bringing to you a brand new project on how to crochet a knit like headband. This is a super easy and gorgeous crochet accessory, perfect for these cold winter months.
I just love crochet and how versatile it can be, and I do love experimenting with different stitches. I love the look of this knit like stitch, as it adds a lot of dimension to a simple crochet project.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here: Crochet A Knit Like Headband Video Tutorial
Crochet A Knit Like Headband: the inspiration
I was inspired to crochet this headband because I really love headbands and ear warmers. The reason for this is that they are not only really pretty, but also really convenient! Indeed, I have long hair, and on windy days I like to tie my hair up. When I do this, a warm Winter headband is so convenient! You can just pop it on your head and your hairstyle will stay put!
Do you love headbands for Winter as much as I do? I also like to have a few different headbands to wear as I like to have choice.
I recently released another headband tutorial that you can find here: Crochet A Velvet Headband With A Twist
This project from a few weeks ago is a tutorial on how to crochet a velvet headband with a twist, and is also a super quick and beautiful project.
Crochet A Knit Like Headband: the knit like stitch
I am absolutely fascinated with the crochet knit stitch. It looks so pretty and does add a little mystery to any project! Is is knit or is it crochet? A knit like stitch can make a simple half double crochet repeat look so much more interesting too. It adds depth and dimension to a project, and in Winter, it is nice to have a warm garment with a tighter woven stitch to wear.
The beauty of crochet lies in it’s versatile and beautiful set of different stitches. I love this stitch especially, as it just looks so wintery and lovely.
I used a chunky 100% acrylic yarn for this project, as I like to have warm headbands. In this instance, I used Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn in shade Pale Rose, which is such a lovely colour. Pale Rose also goes with most colours, which is great for your Winter wardrobe. This yarn is super soft and pretty, and can be substituted very easily with any other chunky yarn of your preference.
