Crochet Romantic Lilac Headband Coachella Inspired
Hello everyone, today I am bringing to you The Crochet Romantic Lilac Headband.
I hope you are well, this week I am bringing to you a brand new tutorial on how to crochet this very easy and romantic lilac headband. It is made with 100% cotton yarn in DK weight (in American terms this is a Light 3 yarn). I hope you enjoy this project, it is such a delight to crochet, so let me know in the comments what you thought and if you have any questions!
As always, you can find my Youtube tutorial here Link to The Lilac Headband Video Tutorial
This headband is perfect for the Summer as it is lightweight and lacy, and the subdued lilac colour really does compliment any outfit. The pattern for it is very easy to follow, and gives off a distinct Boho vibe, and is inspired by the fashion of the 1960’s. During that era, larger and lacy hairband were very much in style. I love how it gives off a really cute and modern festival feeling!
The Crochet Romantic Lilac Headband is very quick and beginner friendly. If you are new to crochet, this is a great accessory. If you are an expert crocheter, this is an amazing project too. I used Stylecraft Classique cotton yarn in shade Lavender, however like I previously stated, you can replace this yarn with the yarn of your choice in DK/light 3 weight.
Headbands are so cute
Oh, I am in love with crochet headbands for the Spring/Summer season at the moment. I have a whole library of patterns and video tutorials for these on my blog (just search for “headband”). Also I love working with cotton or linen yarns during the warmer seasons, as they do add to the bohemian and feminine looks I love in crochet creations. Let me know if you love these types of projects too, as I can make more of these then.
I absolutely love Boho headbands reminiscent of the Hippie/70’s era, as they are so cute and romantic looking. You know I love everything about this time in history. I also like how cotton yarn can give so much charm to these simple accessories.
