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.

This post contains affiliate links.  If you make a purchase using these links I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you.)

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Thank you for stopping by Jo’s Crafty Hook! I would LOVE to see your version of the Acacia Headband!  Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @joscraftyhook #acaciaheadband  You can also find my other social media sites listed below the Acacia Headband Free Crochet Pattern.

If you would like to purchase the Ad-Free Premium crochet pattern with multiple sizes, 0-3 mths to Adult Large, you can get it at my Ravelry Store.

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.

Ribbon Ear Warmers Free Crochet Pattern

In today’s post I’d like to share with you the Ribbon Ear Warmers Free Crochet Pattern.  It is called Ribbon because the ear warmers design used a version of the Rib Stitch or Waffle Stitch.

You can find my Ribbon Ear Warmers in the Crochet Flower Roundup.  You can find crocheted flowers from 10 other crochet designers on my website.  You will find either free or paid patterns from these 10 designers.  Click on the image below and you will be directed to the Crochet Flower Roundup!

In this pattern you will find left handed video and picture tutorials to go along with this pattern.  I even designed the flower that is attached to my version of my pattern.  I hope you enjoy it!
