Crochet Cottagecore Inspired Bandana Free Pattern

Hi everyone, today I wanted to bring to you the crochet Cottagecore Inspired Bandana free pattern. This easy and fun crochet project is perfect for beginners. It is a very delicate and Boho bandana, and is inspired by the Cottagecore aesthetic.Β

Crochet Cottagecore Inspired Bandana Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I absolutely love the new trend which is the Cottagecore aesthetic. But what exactly is Cottagecore, you may wonder? The Macmillan dictionary’s definition of Cottagecore is as follows: “an aesthetic based on an idealized version of a rural lifestyle”. This definition makes sense as I find that long floral dresses and delicate lacy hair accessories are part of this aesthetic that I love so much. I have already crocheted a few hair pieces that can be considered Cottagecore, such as this lacy feminine crochet headband. This beautiful accessory is delicate and is a dream to make up.

This is such a feminine bandana

The Cottagecore aesthetic is in my view the epitome of femininity. It focuses on the delicate and whimsy, and is so very romantic. I just love this aesthetic and I find it completely suits my crochet designs too. To be honest, I definitely feel there will be many more Cottagecore inspired projects coming to my website.

The Bella Flower Cardigan and this beautiful granny square bandana are also inspired by the movement. So if you enjoy the Cottagecore aesthetic, I definitely recommend that you check them out. Do you love this aesthetic too? Let me know also if you want me to create more Cottagecore designs, and what you would like to see more of.

Crochet Cottagecore Inspired Bandana Free Pattern: A Shell Stitch Design

This bandana is very easy to crochet. It is a simple enough design. Indeed, it is crocheted using the shell stitch as the main pattern. It is a very therapeutic project to crochet. I highly recommend it if you are a beginner at crochet.

The shell stitch is so perfect for this project

In all honesty, find the shell stitch particularly suited to crocheting a bandana. Indeed, the simple pattern repeat is perfect for the creation of a delicate and feminine head piece. However, this is not the only reason I find it perfect for this bandana. Another reason is that the shell stitch becomes even more delicate looking row after row. The design tends to widen as it is crocheted, rather than getting longer. This creates a very lovely bandana I find.

If you enjoy the shell stitch, you may want to check out The Summer Sunset Shawl or The Loretta Shawl. Both these projects use the lovely shell stitch as it’s main design.

The yarn I used for this project is also perfect. I used Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta yarn for this bandana, and I think it elevates the project even more. This yarn is so soft and feminine, it is a dream to work with. I have used it many times, including for my very popular scrunchie pattern.

I love this bandana so much, it really embodies the Cottagecore vibe. Let me know if you like this bandana as much as I do! It also makes for a perfect present for a loved one, and it is very fast to make too.

You can sl st through any stitch on the bandana to secure the tie; make sure this looks neat. Fasten off, tidy up your loose end.

Once your yarn is attached, ch 35 and sl st through the 2nd ch from the hook. Sl st through each ch until you reach the end of you chain; once you have reached the end of the chain, fasten this tie to the bandana, making sure you do not twist it.

Fasten off, tidy up your loose end.

    Such a pretty patern, thanks for sharing! I was wondering if you could create a partern for a crochet beach bag? They are everywhere on Instagram and as I’m still quite new to crochet I find your tutorials super helpful. Also, I would love a pattern for wrist warmers with frills. Thank you again!

      Hi! Thank you so much for your lovely comment, I truly appreciate it. Thank you also for your suggestions, they are always so helpful. I do have quite a few bags (including beach/festival bags) on this blog and Youtube channel, just search for “bag” on my blog and they should come up.
      Also, I am definitely going to be designing wrist warmers with frills very soon, thank you for the suggestion!
