Crochet Lilly Cottagecore Bandana Free Pattern: The Inspiration

This new crochet bandana design is inspired by the Spring. Indeed, I called this bandana “The Lilly Bandana” as I was inspired by the fact that today is the 1st of May, which in France is the feast of the lily of the valley flower. I love the “1er Mai”, also called “Fete du Muguet”.

This bandana is so feminine!

This project is also Cottagecore inspired. It features little flower squares that are sewed together to create the triangle shape of this bandana. In the past I have designed different bandanas, and I do love these! They just add such a lovely feminine vibe to any outfit. And bandanas really can looks very soft and dreamy, perfect for the Cottagecore aesthetic.

This lovely and feminine bandana I crocheted last year is also perfect in all seasons. Crocheted with Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn, this Cottage inspired bandana features a delicate shell stitch. This two toned bandana is also a great project for all levels of crochet, and it is very easy to make too.

Crochet Lilly Cottagecore Bandana Free Pattern: Cotton Yarn

I used one of my favorite yarns for this pattern, which is Drops Muskat yarn. This yarn is so soft and it is perfect for so many reasons. In the Spring and Summer cotton projects are so lovely, perfect for the warmer months.

Drops Muskat is 100% mercerized cotton and is of a DK/Light 3 weight yarn. This yarn is very easy to use, and it is available in many different colors. So many different types of projects can be crocheted with this yarn.

This crochet bandana is so pretty!

The Constance Vintage Shawl is crocheted with this yarn, and it is very soft and lovely to look at too. The Brigitte Headband, inspired by the 1960s, is also a great example of cotton yarn used for this Vintage project. Lately, I was really pleased to release this puff flower purse which is also made with cotton yarn.

I hope you enjoy this new crochet bandana pattern. It was so much fun to make! I love flower granny squares, and this is a perfect way to showcase these squares.

Rounds 1 & 2

Sew your 6 granny squares and 2 triangles together to form bandanna:

Place your 6 granny squares and 2 triangles together like so to form a bandanna (as seen in picture).

Place squares like so
Place squares like so

Create ties and shell stitch edging:

Once you have sewed all your elements together, you can start crocheting your border and ties.

You will be creating your ties as we create the border (the process is integrated).

Attach your yarn to the top corner of your project, and chain 40. Once you have chained 40, slip stitch through each chain until you reach the last chain; slip stitch through the space you first began on the project to secure hair tie (see photograph below).

Once you have done this, place a SC into each stitch across the top until you reach the 5 central stitches at the top center part. In these stitches, place a DC instead of a SC (=5 DCs).

Now continue to place a SC into each stitch across until you reach the other side corner.

Once you have reached the other corner at the top of the bandana, chain 40, and slip stitch through every chain across until you reach the stitch where you began. Slip stitch through that stitch to secure second hair tie.

Now place a SC into each and every stitch across the β€œV” part of the bandana, until you reach the first SC on the other top corner of the project. Slip stitch through that stitch to finish off this round.

Round 2 (shell stitch edging):

We will be crocheting across the β€œV” part of the bandana for this second round (from one hair tie to the other hair tie).

We will be working the shell stitch edging into the SCs from previous row.

Ch 3 (=DC), place 2 DCs into this first stitch (=half shell stitch); sk 2 st, SC into the next stitch; * sk 2 stitches, place 5 DC into next stitch, sk 2 st, SC into next st * until last 3 stitches on the other side of the β€œV”.

Now sk 2 st, place 3 DCs into last stitch (=half shell stitch).

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.

Optional:

You can sew the two half shells on each side to the hair ties (see photograph below). This will give a neater finish to the bandana.
