Crochet The Lorelei Bandana

Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you a new tutorial, on how to crochet The Lorelei Bandana. This is a super easy and fun project to crochet. I love crochet bandanas and how cool and sweet they look over our head. This has been a project that I have wanted to crochet for a long time, and I am so happy with how it’s turned out.

Crochet The Lorelei Bandana: the inspiration

Crochet this easy project in under an hour

Like I previously stated, this project has been in the works for a long time. Recently, I started watching the series Gilmore Girls from the very beginning, and bandanas can be seen very often in this series. Thus the name of the bandana, Lorelei, in honor of our two favorite heroines. I had previously seen and loved Gilmore Girls when it originally aired in the early 2000s, and I have to say I still love this series today!

In the series, many of the characters are seen wearing bandanas draped over their heads. I love this look so much, and decided to create my own crochet version. It looks very cool, and the fact that it is crocheted with cotton yarn gives it a distinct Boho look. I love it so much, and hope you do too!

Crochet The Lorelei Bandana: the yarn

For this crochet bandana, I used a 100% cotton DK/light 3 yarn for this project. I used Patons 100% cotton yarn for this project, and it is great. You can however substitute this yarn with any mercerized 100% cotton yarn of your preference. I love cotton yarn and projects, they give off such a summery and bohemian vibe.

You can find another one of my favorite Summer projects here. This is an easy and romantic 1950s hair scarf, perfect for a vintage and elegant vibe. I love this crochet scarf so much, it dates back from last year.

Crochet headpieces and hair accessories are so beautiful and feminine. I know I love mine! I have a whole library of crochet hairpieces on this blog, so don’t forget to check them out.
