How to Crochet a 3 Braided Chunky Headband (DIY)

How to crochet a Headband Earwarmer that has 3 braided strands. My daughter wanted me to crochet a braided headband ear warmer for her this winter. 

How to Crochet a DIY Braided Chunky Headband Pattern Crochet
3 Strand Braided Headband Earwarmer 

The main braid of the earwarmer had to be made with 3 crocheted strands and woven together. 
I was actually taken aback at not only how stunning this crocheted ear warmer is and how easy the braided headband part was to crochet.  

And once my daughter posted it on her Instagram the requests came flooding in for a written crochet pattern for the Braided Headband so folks could make it themselves.

I will list the materials needed to help you to  DIY and make your own along with the pattern below. 

The Braided Headband that is crocheted but Looks Like Knit 

These Crocheted braided Headbands ALSO SELL well at Craft Fairs, I have found that darker colors, greys, beige, and some deep plum colors sell the most. 

At a craft market, I always keep ONE as a display as you will be surprised at how many orders you can get.
I ask for a commission payment towards the materials in case they are never to be seen again, and the finished headband just goes into my stock for the next market, so technically I have not lost out.

Fast EASY Crochet Project Stretchy headband earwarmer pattern FREE

This is another Best Seller at Craft Stalls and Markets.
It is a very FAST and easy to crochet Project  (Knit look) Stretchy Headband 

So I have tried to make this as easy as possible to replicate the free crochet braided headband pattern. Use these measurements below to help you crochet a headband that fits. 

The braided parts of the headband should measure at the length you require (By the time you crochet the pieces and plait them together, it will shrink in size BUT we then add some rows at the back to join. It will fit the correct size.

How wide should a braided crochet headband be? 

The headband once plaited should measure more than 4 inches to be a warm earwarmer and headband. 

How many chains do you need to crochet a headband? - Starting chains for The Braided Earwarmer should measure : 

  • Adult Small Woman = total headband measurement = approx 19'
  • Adult Medium - total headband measurement = approx 20'-21'
  • Adult Large - total headband measurement = approx 22-23''
You can also mix up the yarn weights and hooks to make this braided headband for any size. The grey one is 2 strands of Aran weight together, making it nice and chunky.
I have made the pattern easy to understand and you will make 3 braids joined together, from the starting chains of Each strand.

If you are a visual learner I have made a crochet headband tutorial on youtube for those who wish to see how to crochet the earwarmer and how to plait the braids.

Please I have NO sound on the videos but have added the relevant information as required to complete the Headband. I have a very thick Scottish accent and would need the subtitles anyway to translate ...lol 

Material Required: 

  • ANY yarn and HOOK (as Long as you follow the Measurements stated) 
  • I used 2 strands of ARAN weight yarn held Together for the main picture of the Braided headband
  • 5.500 mm hook 
  • A kebab skewer (or something long and thin to hold the pieces together whist crocheting along the edges of the strands to join.)
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors. 

NOTES:

 Look closely at the photo to SEE where to make the Slip stitch along in the Second ROW 
  • All strands are worked in the same way.  you simply ch the same lengths each time after completion of ROW.
