A funky little headband made with Tofutsies sock yarn. You hold two strands together. This is a great project for using up leftover yarn! Isn't my 3 year old model just gorgeous?? I wish i had her blonde hair.

Tofustises sock yarn

Crochet hook (guage is not important, around 2.5-3.5mm would be suitable i think).

4.00mm needles


Using a crochet hook and holding two strands of yarn together, chain for about 25cm. This is the part that you tie up at the back of your neck. (Alternatively you could knit an i-cord, but crochet is quicker!).

Switch to 4.00mm needles,

Row 1: KFB (2 sts)

Row 2: KFB twice (4 sts)

Row 3: KFB, knit to end

Repeat row 3 until there are 11 stitches.

Begin pattern:

Row 1: k5, p1, k5

Row 2: k3, p1,k1,p1,k1,p1,k3

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until headband measures desired length, about a bit past your ear lobes.

Next row: K2tog, knit to end

Repeat until 4 sts remain

Next row: k2 tog twice (2 stitches)

Next row: k2 tog (1 st)

Use a crochet hook to chain for 25cm. Fasten off and weave in ends.

  1. How long do you need the two strands to be in order to do this project? Thank you. Love this!!!
