Acacia Headband Free Crochet Pattern

Today’s I am sharing with you my Acacia Headband Free Crochet Pattern.  Each year it seems like I learn a new stitch and fall in love with it so much that I design multiple crochet patterns using that stitch.  The Acacia Headband uses the stitch that I recently fell in love with.

The Wattle Stitch is the one I learned last year and fell in love with.  I have used it to design a beanie, a cowl, a skirt, a clutch and now a headband.  Of course I have a couple more in the works.  🙂

You can find the Acacia Headband crochet patterns along with 26 other crochet designers and their new and favorite Spring designs at my Spring into Spring 2022 Roundup.

 

 

 

I want to thank my pattern testers for all of their help in making the Acacia Headband crochet pattern the best it can be.  Thank you Kami Jones, Kit Haverland, Ali Haas, Jennifer Smith and Tammy Alexander.

Fasten off leaving a long tail to close the side of the headband closed.  If you would like to create a smaller closer, leave a longer tail of yarn to wrap multiple times around your closure seam.  See image below.

Closing instructions:

With RS facing RS, match together the sc row to the fsc row, sew together the side of the headband using the running stitch or whichever stitch you prefer.

I am SO proud of the testers who really put up with me and all of my errors and putting their time in effort into making this crochet pattern error free.  If there are any mistakes, they are my own.
