How to crochet the Cross stitch head band


So the hot weather is coming sooner than we might expect it and in some countries, summer is throughout the year, so having headbands handy and with different styles is good, especially if you can make it yourself, quickly easily and beautifully.

So, although I didn't make many projects using it, The cross stitch pattern is one of my favorite patterns, it adds not only texture but also a hint of style and beauty without overdoing it.

I love how it looks on the head band as I didn't expected it to be this pretty.

I'm sure if you are a crocheter you feel like me, you start exited with your project, than in the middle you think, neeee, it's not gonna work and at the end you get surprised by what you've done!!

So, for this headband, I have used cotton mercerized  yarn and 3 MM crochet hook and within roughly 2 hours you can finish it.

This headband is neither tight or loose, it's just perfect, you'll find the measurements below together with the written pattern.


Crochet hook: 3 MM

Yarn: 1 ball of Alize Cotton Gold Batik
