FREE Crochet Braided Headband Pattern EASY (3 Strand Braid)

How to crochet a 3-strand Chunky Crochet Braided Headband Earwarmer Pattern.

So here is the super popular FREE and EASY Chunky Crochet Braided Headband Pattern.
All credit to My daughter who wanted me to crochet a fashionable ear warmer hair accessory!

The Braided Headband is crocheted but Looks Like it is Knitted! The main headband Crochet Pattern is just a play on the double crochets, by simply adding slip stitches which create these slightly textured lines.

The main braid of the ear warmer is very easy to crochet and is made with 3 crocheted strands, made with variations of the double crochets and woven together. 

Once I had made the twisted headband, I was taken aback at not only how stunning it is but also how easy the braided headband part was to crochet.

Undoubtedly The Crocheted braided Headbands ALSO SELL well at Craft Fairs as the headbans make great gifts. I have found that darker colors, greys, beige, and some deep plum colors sell the most.

At a craft market, I always keep ONE ear warmer headband 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.

I also have several more Free crochet headband patterns available on my website, like the Knit Look stretchy Headband 

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 DK (Worsted Weight) yarn held Together for the main picture of the Braided headband
  • 5.500 mm hook 
  •  kebab skewer (or something long and thin to hold the pieces together whist crocheting along the edges of the strands to join.)
  • Yarn/ tapestry Needle
  • Scissors. 

NOTES:
 Look closely at the photo to SEE where to make the Slip stitch along in the Second ROW
