Crochet Feminine Headband with Buttons
Hello my lovelies! This week has gone quite chilly here in the UK, so I thought I would bring you a cute an feminine crochet project. This is for a crochet feminine headband with buttons.
Autumn is upon us now, and I think this is a lovely crochet accessory. It is very versatile, and I love to keep my ears covered when the weather gets cold.
As always, you can watch my Youtube video for this tutorial here: Crochet Heabdand with Buttons Video Tutorial
Crochet Feminine Headband with Buttons: the inspiration
As always, I would like to talk about the inspiration behind this crochet project. I love feminine and cute crochet accessories, and wanted an ear warmer with a dainty touch. After much thought, I decided to add some floral buttons to this project as it really adds a feminine touch. These are so cute and delicate, and really elevate the look of this simple crochet headband.
These buttons measure 18 mm and I bought them of Amazon. They are so cute and very versatile. I have already used some of these to crochet my face mask ear savers: Crochet Face Mask Extenders/Ear Savers.
I definitely love adding some details such as buttons or frills to my crochet patterns, as it always adds a little je ne sais quoi that I love. Let me know if you do too!
Crochet Feminine Headband with Buttons: the yarn
I absolutely adore Lion Brand yarns, and I chose to use the Ferris Wheel yarn, in shade Candy Cane. It’s a lovely medium weight 4 yarn, that is a 100% acrylic. This ombré variegated yarn is a delight to work with, and the colours are just divine. Adding some floral buttons elevated this project so much, and didn’t clash with the yarn at all.
It is also a very easy and versatile yarn to use, and because of the fact it’s an Aran weight yarn, it gives extra warmth and cosiness to the project.
Let me know if you have ever used this yarn. I only used a small amount of this yarn cake, so I think I will definitely be making a cowl or scarf to go with this headband.
Crochet Feminine Headband with Buttons: a very beginner friendly project
If you are a beginner at crochet, this is the perfect project for you. Easy and versatile, you can crochet it in a matter of one or two hours. The pattern works up with an alternation of single and double crochets, so it is very beginner friendly. It builds up quickly, and then a minimal amount of sewing is necessary to finish off this headband.
If you are a beginner crocheter, this is a great project to get you started making garments and accessories. The yarn is also very beginner friendly, as it is glides easily through your fingers.
