The Aria Summer Crochet Headband works in many so many different colors. I love the solid version, but the combinations are endless. How can you beat such a fast crochet project?

These little headbands are perfect for stash busting all that scrap yarn. The headbands only require about 35-60 yards of yarn. So you can mix and match all those bits and ends for a stunning result.

The Yarn

I love Lion Brand’s 24/7 cotton.* The color selection is amazing. This teal is my all time favorite. Plus their cotton has a sheen to it that adds such beauty.

The Ecru is a go to for neutral lovers. And while the pink I used was another of their yarns, ZZ Twist. They have some gorgeous pinks in the 24/7 line.



  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, like one of these standing stitches.
  2. Headband is worked in the round, but joined and turned after each round.
  3. Stitch multiple is 6.
  4. I changed colors after Row 2 on the colored headbands, but you can customize your color changes to your liking.

Stitches/Abbreviations (US Terms)


ch sp-chain space

dc-double crochet

hdc-half double crochet


sk-skip the indicated stitch          


tr-treble stitch

v-st-double crochet, chain 1, double crochet all in same stitch


2″ x 2″ = 7 sc x 6 rows of sc




To adjust the length of your headband the stitch multiple is 6 (6, 12, 18, 24… etc).

If adding or taking away 6 sts is too much change, try adjusting your hook size. The negative ease is 2,” so finished headband will be about 2” smaller and stretch to fit actual head size.

The finished width is 2.5.” To adjust the width, repeat Rnds 2-5, be sure to stop on after a Rnd 5 repeat.
