The Casual Cotton headband is designed to turn the bad hair day ponytail into a stylish look. A first I made this headband to compliment my daughter’s Beachside Baby Romper, but after seeing how cute she was in it I decided I wanted one too. 

I have been wearing my Casual Cotton Headband almost everyday since I first put it on. This headband dresses up my tank top, top knot and jeans look. It makes it look like this busy mom look a little more put together.

The Casual Cotton Headband free crochet pattern is designed to dress up the plain tank top and jeans look. This is an easy pattern that is great for beginners.

I have provided two patterns for this headband. They are labeled child’s and adult’s but you can easily make a smaller tie for an adult head band or a large tie for the child’s headband if you like. The only thing that needs to be adjusted for size is the band.

    You don’t state if you’re using the chains as stitches or not so it makes your pattern instructions confusing.

      I have updated the pattern with notes pertaining to the Chains. I do not count my turning chain as a stitch and the 2 Chains in row 8 do count as stitches (since they are not turning chains). I have learned a lot over my first year of blogging and have a few improvements to make to old patterns.
