The Seed Stitch Headband - Free Pattern

 The Seed Stitch Headband

Hi everyone! Welcome to my first post of 2022! During 2021, I published 7 patterns, including one that was in issue 9 of the WeCrochet magazine, (The Charmed Cardigan) which you can find here. The individual pattern can be purchased here

The Seed Stitch Headband is a fast and easy project, using the same stitch I used for the charmed cardigan pattern. Perfect for using up leftover scraps of yarn! It has a cute sinch in the front and can be used as an ear warmer in the cold winter months, or just a regular headband. 

Size Chart: 


Head Circumference 







Teen/Adult Small


Adult Medium 



  • Yarn- I used WeCrochet’s Twill, which is a #4 worsted weight yarn, this yarn is quite a bit thinner than the average worsted weight yarn, it was more like a #3 DK. 

  • 5mm crochet hook, or size required to meet gauge

  • Yarn needle 

  • Scissors


Ch- Chain 

Sc- Single Crochet

Dc- Double Crochet

**- Repeat the directions between * and * as many times as stated

R- Row 

()- The number inside is how many stitches you should have at the end of a row

st(s)- stitch(es)

Gauge Instructions:

Chain 17

R1: *Dc in the second chain from hook, sc in next chain* repeat across, chain 1 turn (16)

R2-14: Dc in first st, Sc in next st, *Dc in next st, Sc in next st* repeat across, chain 1 turn

The gauge for this pattern is 15 sts and 14 rows, so your square should be slightly wider than 4 inches, If your swatch is the correct size you can unravel it and start working on your headband 


The pattern will be written as sizes: Baby(Toddler, Child, Teen/Adult small, Adult Medium) 

Ch 9(11,11, 13, 13, 13)

R1: *Dc in 2nd Ch from hook, Sc in next Ch* Repeat across, Ch 1, turn <8(10, 10, 12, 12, 12)>

R2-50(56, 60, 66, 72): Dc in first st, Sc in next st,  *Dc in next st, Sc in next st* Repeat across, Ch 1, turn <8(10, 10, 12, 12, 12)>

Try on the headband, if it’s too loose, undo a few rows, if it’s too tight, add a few rows, please let me know if you make any adjustments. 

  Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing, continue to assembly instructions 


1. Using a yarn needle sew the 2 ends of the headband together using the whip stitch. Fasten off, weave in ends 

2. Thread a yarn needle with 12-18” of your yarn, do not tie a knot in the yarn, weave the needle in and out of the headband as shown in the picture: 

3. Remove yarn from the yarn needle, adjust the yarn so that there is an even amount of yarn on each side:

4. Pull the yarn ends tight to make the headband cinch, wrap yarn around to the inside of the headband and tie a single knot, wrap the yarn all the way around the headband once, so that both yarn ends go opposite ways, the yarn should be on the inside of the headband


5. Tie a double knot on the inside of the headband, weave in ends 

Congratulations! You finished your headband! I would really appreciate it if you added a project to ravelry, or tagged me on Instagram @lilyscutecrochet
