The 4th of July is coming up so quickly! I initially wanted to work up a much larger project inspired by the 4th of July, but as my daughter saw me working she begged to use what I had already worked up as a headband. My daughter is the QUEEN of headbands, so if this has been a huge hit with her I am sure there are many others out there who will enjoy it.
I crocheted this large enough that it will fit both my head and my daughter’s. It ties in the back so there is no need to worry about stretch or adding any type of buttons. This pattern works up super quickly and is very easy to follow.
Please feel free to drop a comment below to let me know how you’ll be celebrating the 4th, and if you enjoyed working up this 4th of July headband.
US size I crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn in red, white and blue
Slip stitch- ss
To begin, ch 126
Row 1. ss in second ch from hook and in next 24 st, *ch 14. skip 6 chains and ss in 7th*, repeat from * to * until you have 23 stitches left, ss in last 23 stitches, finish off red.
Row 2. attach white yarn by creating a ss right before your first ch 14 in the previous row, ch 6, ss in center of red loop from previous row, *ch 10, ss in center of red loop* repeat from * to * until you’ve ss into the last red loop, then ch 6 and ss in the first st right after your first ch 14 in the previous row.

Sew in ends. Cut two strands of each color, approximately 16″ long and use your darning needle to attach one strand of each color to the first stitch on each end of the headband. Pull your strands through halfway and tie a knot into them to keep them in place.
You’re all finished! I hope this pattern was easy to read and follow. As always, feel free to drop a comment below or send me an e-mail with any questions or concerns.
