Easiest Headwrap EVER!!!

Welcome everyone!

I needed to work up a headwrap super fast and couldn’t find an easy basic pattern so I’ve decided to type up my own! I just recently worked up this flower and thought it would be the PERFECT embellishment for this awesome headwrap! I hope you love it as much as I do :)

If you know the crochet basics then you can do this! This headwrap is fantastic by itself OR embellished with whatever type of flower or bow pattern you like.

Bonus…it’s works up in NO time!

Big THANK YOU to my wonderful friend Amy from Photography by Amy for her amazing eye behind the lens and my gorgeous friend Emily from Elevate Salon for modeling last-minute for me! She said this was HER color…I couldn’t agree more :)

This is, from now on, my GO-TO, no-brainer Easiest Headwrap EVER Pattern! I hope it quickly becomes yours.

Print Friendly

Materials:
any WW yarn
Size H 5.0mm hook
Yarn sewing needle
One button

Abbreviations:
ch – chain
sk – skip
sp(s) – space(s)
slst – slip stitch
st – stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc – double crochet

Gauge: 7hdc x (almost) 6 rows = 2″ square
Finished headwrap measures approx. 22″ long

Note 1: When working the hdc stitches insert hook BETWEEN the stitches NOT in the top 2 loops. I love the way the stitches lay when worked this way and since the piece is worked back & forth it provides a more uniformed look. See picture below.

Note 2: The ch1 NEVER counts as a stitch.

Note 3: I tend to crochet on the loose side so if you find as you’re working this up that it may be too short for you, just add some extra rows right before starting the decrease.

Row 1 - ch5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across to end, ch1, turn. (4)
Row 2 - hdc in 1st st, ch2, sk 2 sts, hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (2 sts & a ch2 sp…button hole)
Row 3 - 2hdc in 1st st, 2hdc in ch2 sp, 2hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 4 - hdc in each st across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 5 - 2hdc, hdc in next 4, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 6 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 7 - 2hdc, hdc in next 6, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 8 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 9 - 2hdc, hdc in next 8, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (12)
Row 10 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (12)

Rows 11-55 – REPEAT Row 10. (12)

Row 56 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 9, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 57 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 58 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 7, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 59 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 60 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 5, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 61 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 62 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 3, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (4)
Row 63 - hdc across, ch1, DO NOT TURN. (4)

*NOW work SC down the side of the piece all the way around by putting 1sc in each hdc row & 2sc in each corner. Slst to the first sc made to join. Finish off and weave in your ends.

Line up your button hole to the other side and sew on your button of choice!

EASY PEASY!!

I think this would make an awesome scrap yarn project with different colored rows!!

Now the FLOWER PATTERN:
Ch5, join with a slst to the first ch to make a loop.

Round 1 - ch1, (sc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, sc) in the loop FOUR times, slst to the first sc made. {Now remove hook from loop, take your hook and insert it from behind and pull the loop from the front to the back and continue on the Round 2} (4 petals total)
