Crochet Pink Ballerina Headband Pattern
Hi everyone, today I am bringing to you The Crochet Pink Ballerina Headband pattern. This is a great project for beginners, and looks beautiful in the colder months ahead. This easy crochet project is made using Caron’s Baby Cake in shade Dreamy Peach, and is very feminine.

Crochet Pink Ballerina Headband Pattern: the inspiration
We are now in late September, and have just transitioned into Autumn officially. I am really looking forward to chilling out in front of a warm fire with a crochet project and a cup of tea. Indeed, I am really excited for this new season, mostly because of all the exciting crochet projects I will be making. I love Autumn Winter crochet, and I have so many exciting crochet pieces in the works that I will be releasing in the coming months.
The Pink Ballerina winter headband is feminine and features a dainty twist. I love this beautiful crochet headband as it is so simple to make, yet striking. It features the Lemon Peel stitch (also known as the Griddle stitch), which is very pretty and textured. This stitch is very easy to make, and can be crocheted by complete beginners too. I hope you enjoy this simple tutorial! Let me know in the comments if you make it.
Crochet Pink Ballerina Headband Pattern: the stitch
I love Caron Baby Cakes, as this yarn is so soft, and the colors so pretty. I have already used this yarn many times. For example, I crocheted The Vintage Baby Blanket and The Louis Baby Blanket with this very yarn. I am planning on crocheting a matching infinity scarf very soon, so watch this space. Crocheting accessories with this yarn is very good if you are planning on giving these items as gifts. Indeed, this yarn is super soft and does not contain wool. This is great if you are gifting an item and you are unsure whether the person receiving the gift is allergic to wool or not.
I love winter headbands, also known as ear warmers. Indeed, they don’t only look good, they are also super handy for the winter. I tend to tie my hair back when going out because of the strong northern winds where I live (very close to the coast), and a headband is perfect to keep my ear warms and my hair tidy!
The little twist detail of this headband adds extra elegance to it, which I love. Let me know if you ever make this project. I love headbands and think I will be making many more this coming Autumn/Winter. Also, I think I will be making lots of Autumn and Winter accessories, so I am very excited about this!

Row 1: SC into 4th ch from hook, [DC into next st, SC into next st] until eor (finish on a SC).

Rows 3-11: repeat row 2.
Do not fasten off.
Sew your headband together and create twist
Place your project flat, and fold in two lengthwise.
Make sure project is neatly folded, then fold the two sides of your project to create a center fold.
Take one side and twist it so that it creates a twist on one side.
Once this is done, take both sides and place them facing you, and slide each side into the opposite side so to create a “sandwich” effect.
You now have four layers to stitch together.
With tapestry needle and loose end, sew these layers together securely. You can sew this seam in twice if you wish (I did).
Create a knot once you have finished seaming the project, fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.
Turn your project inside out so the right side is facing.
