Free Crochet Pattern: Headband Part 2

Who’s ready for another free crochet headband pattern? This winter weather can’t make up its mind, but on the cold days, my ears are screaming for warmth! In my previous post, I shared the pattern for my original headband. While it is fine and dandy and gets the job done, it is a little bland. Enter a new style in this headband series: the cinched headband.

This pattern is exactly the same as the original pattern, but it is finished off with a little detail. It can be worked in one color or more colors and is very beginner friendly!
