Hippie Headband Crochet Pattern

Hello fellow crochet lovers! Today I am featuring one of my new loves which is the Hippie Headband for summertime!

Disclosure:  To cover the cost of publishing my blog and bringing you awesome content, this blog may contain affiliate links.  Therefore, if you choose to make a purchase at no additional cost to you, I may earn a small percentage of the sale.

For this design I decided to create a mini daisy Hippie Headband in bright and neutral colors using one of my fav yarns for summer wearing. Of course that is Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton yarn. In addition it is a 100% cotton yarn which is totally awesome for summer as it creates a very breathable fabric. In addition this yarn is a size 4 medium weight yarn so if you do not have a Hobby Lobby in your area you can substitute any 100% cotton yarn in size 4 but make sure to check your gauge as usual.

Another exciting feature about this Hippie Headband is it has a elastic hairtie at the back to ensure a secure fit! There is nothing worse then to wear an item and have it stretch out and fall off your head.

Therefore this Hippie Headband will be the perfect retro addition to all who love the hippie fashions!

What Color Combo will you create?????
