If you’ve been searching for a quick knitting or crochet project, I’ve got a wonderful collection for you. I found 30 easy headband patterns that you can knit or crochet in just a few hours. If you live where it gets pretty cold during the winter months, you know that a good knit headband can be your best friend.
Not only do they help to keep your hair out of the way – and quite stylishly I might add – they can also be great for keeping your ears warm during those blistery winter days.
Crochet or knit headbands are great for adding just a bit of style. They’re also perfect for giving as gifts to any little girl or grown woman that you know.
These are all so easy, and many of them take very little yarn, so you can make several and give them to your family and friends. You’ll also want to check out these 100 crochet and knitting patterns that are perfect for beginners.

This bulky cable knit headband is the perfect cold weather accessory. You use a heavyweight yarn and it’s a really easy pattern, and the perfect way to practice your cable knit.
