Honeysuckle Herringbone Headband Pattern

The Honeysuckle herringbone crochet headband pattern. What a mouthful, my plan of naming patterns with flower and plant names will become difficult eventually…

This pattern started with some fingerless gloves using the herringbone stitch (here), and I wanted to make a cute headband to match. I really love the alternating herringbone stripes, and the effect that comes from every other row essentially being ‘the wrong way round’.

You can find the stitch tutorial here, and a cardigan using the same stitch here. Can you tell it’s one of my favourites?

Herringbone Crochet Headband Pattern


<100g of an Aran weight yarn (Recommend Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca or Paintbox Simply Aran – both of these come in the most gorgeous colours too!)
4.0mm hook
Scissors and needle for finishing


Stitches used (US):

  • Double Crochet (yarn over and pull through a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops)
  • Herringbone Double Crochet (yarn over and pull through a loop (3 loops on hook), pull the first loop through the second (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through the first loop (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops to finish)

Double Crochet (DC)
Herringbone Double Crochet (HB)
Slip Stitch (SS)
Chain (CH)

Oher notes and tips:

  • Stitch count is in brackets at the end of each round
  • Adjust the number of starting chains in step one for a smaller or larger head
  • Adjust the number of rows for a thinner or thicker band (9 rows should go a great job at covering the whole ear)

Row 1 – CH98, work 1 DC in 2nd CH from hook and every stitch until the end (96)
Row 2 – CH2, work 1 HB in every stitch until the end (96)


Repeat row 2 for a further 7 rows, 9 in total.

Close the headband with a slip stitch in each row, or sew with a needle.
Pinch the headband along the seam and wrap the same colour yarn around the band to cover the join. Tie a discrete knot and wrap in the ends to cover and secure.
